How to Remove Visual Editor Mode in WordPress

WordPress has a robust feature known as the Visual Editor that makes your post writing area look just like a Microsoft Word. It makes writing post easy, but in many cases it ends up ruining the formatting. When switching to HTML mode and switching back, a lot of formatting is lost and then it causes errors on your website. In this article, we will show you how you can get rid of the WordPress visual editor.

Your goal is that when you login and start a new post, you are automatically in the HTML mode rather than visual mode. First thing you need to do is login to your WordPress admin panel.

Then you would need to go to Users > Your Profile, there you will see something that looks like the image below:

Check this option and you will no longer have to deal with formatting errors caused by WordPress again. Now some people might be afraid that they would have to enter things in HTML, but no. There is still a bar there to help you edit posts, but it just won’t be as rich featured as the other one. This is for those users who have some knowledge of HTML.
