Disable Text Tab in Post Editor for frontend form

    I include edit title and post content for the frontend forms.

    This code:

                                            'post_title' => true,
                                            'post_content' => true,

    But in this case I can not adjust the field name and post content as the other fields of the ACF. However, I would like to change the settings of the field post content. For example, I would like to disable HTML (Text) Tab in post editor. Leave only the visual editor.

    Settings that work to backend forms, for example:

    function my_editor_settings($settings) {
    $settings['quicktags'] = false;
    return $settings;
    add_filter('wp_editor_settings', 'my_editor_settings');

    It does not work for front-end ACF forms. Any suggestions how to do it?

    Hi @buylov

    To remove the Visual/Text tab, you can edit your WYSIWYG field and set the “Tabs” as “Visual Only”.

    I hope this helps.

    Yes, but ‘post_content’ is not a field ACF. This is a required field post.

    Hi @buylov

    The easiest way would be using CSS to hide it. Something like this:

    div[data-name="_post_content"] .wp-editor-tabs { 
        display: none;

    Hope this does the trick!

  • Hi, how can I hide the Text tab for all users, but admins ?

    Thanks a lot and best regards
