Better Text Widget adds a small improvement to text widgets in WordPress. It adds a…
One of the more annoying things in rolling out WordPress sites is getting content from clients or customers that is all caps, or all lowercase, or just does not have the right text case for any reason. Change Text Case offers a simple solution to that problem.
What’s it Do?
Change Text Case adds a few new buttons to the TinyMCE editor which allow you to control the text case in the visual editor. It includes four buttons, uppercase, lowercase, sentence case, and title case. It breaks down like this:
- Uppercase – Makes all of the highlighted text words uppercase
- Lowercase – Makes all of the highlighted text words lowercase
- Sentence Case – Capitalizes the word after a period, question mark or exclamation point
- Title Case – Capitalizes the first letter of every word
You can switch these buttons on and off in the Settings window. They are handy for when you need to modify a large block of text but don’t want to have to do it manually.
How’s it Work?
After you install and activate the plugin, your new text case buttons will be added to the TinyMCE editor automatically. You can start using them by going to the visual editor of any post or page, highlighting a block of text that needs it’s case to be changed, and clicking on any of the buttons. This can change the text to be all caps, no caps, or switch it back to the normal case.
If you are only using one or a couple of the buttons, you can toggle them on or off by going to Settings -> Change Text Case. There, you will see four checkboxes, one for each of the buttons included. Simply uncheck the box to turn this button off.
And that’s about it. You can now spend less time fixing up text case mistakes.
Costs, Caveats, Etc.
Change Text Case is free, and the developer is certainly open to adding new features if they fit within the parameters of the plugin. It’s fairly simple but has already seen a few updates. If you are having any problems with the plugin, you should visit the support forums on wp.org.
