How to use WordPress visual mode and text mode to write HTML

The WordPress visual mode and text mode can be a great shortcut for producing basic HTML.

This can be useful for adding links and other formatting to plain text widgets, announcement bars, excerpts or other places in WordPress that don’t support rich text formatting.


  • Start a new post (or page)
  • Make sure you are in “Visual” mode
  • Add bold, italic, links or any other formatting
  • Switch to “text” mode to view the HTML – you can then copy and paste this code elsewhere
  • Once you are done remember to delete that post – otherwise you will end up with many messy “drafts”


Here’s a video with a brief demo:
