Do you prefer to work directly with the HTML when writing a new entry? Are the simple formatting buttons in the MT interface simply not enough for you? MT-Quicktags is likely just the drink to quench your thirst.
MT-Quicktags is not a finished plugin. It works well and provides many more editing buttons to both the Entry Body and Extended Entry fields. In that regard, I don’t hesitate to use or recommend it. However, there is no Settings interface, so if you’d like use it only with certain weblogs or customize the buttons, you’ll need to open up
quicktags.js and hack away. (Though buttons are part of an array that can be easily added to.)
Installation: Download and extract. Upload the contents of the
plugins/ folder into your MT installation’s
plugins/ folder. Upload the contents of the
mt-static/ folder to your installation’s
Use: If you start a new entry or edit an existing entry, you should see the Quicktags toolbar. Click a button to use it.
