format_for_editor( string $text, string $default_editor = null )

Formats text for the editor.


Description Description

Generally the browsers treat everything inside a textarea as text, but it is still a good idea to HTML entity encode <, > and & in the content.

The filter ‘format_for_editor’ is applied here. If $text is empty the filter will be applied to an empty string.


Parameters Parameters

$text

(string) (Required) The text to be formatted.

$default_editor

(string) (Optional) The default editor for the current user. It is usually either 'html' or 'tinymce'.
