Plugins that work with built-in WordPress editor TinyMCE

TinyMCE is a built-in WordPress editor, which allows you to work with both plain text and HTML code. When creating a new page or a new post in our editor, you are switched to the Setka Editor’s tab, while TinyMCE tabs are deactivated. This is a necessary measure to exclude the conflict of content created in different editors.

Some third-party plugins were originally created to work with the TinyMCE editor. For example, to embed various templates (such as buttons, contact forms, tables, navigation menus, galleries) these plugins refer to TinyMCE functions. For this reason, some control functions of these plugins (e.g. inserting an object by clicking a button) will not work correctly in conjunction with Setka Editor. However, you can add the desired objects to the Setka Editor workspace using a shortcode without any restrictions.

Here are some most popular WordPress plugins that refer to built-in WordPress editor which shortcodes can be added via Setka Editor:

Lockdown WP admin plugin – blocking access to wp-admin

This plugin restricts access to the files inside the WP Admin (/wp-admin/) folder, if the user is not authorized. Attempting to access to WP-admin directly returns the 404 error.

Wp-admin/admin-post.php file is responsible for getting updates to Setka Editor files and to the styles you create in Style Manager. Therefore, blocking it in Wordpress or any access restriction for /wp-admin/ on a web server leads to problems in the work of Setka Editor.
