After the WordPress 4.7 update, we lost the Underline and Justify buttons on our post edit toolbar which should not be missing in my opinion! I don’t know about you but I was livid!! LOL How can they take those buttons away?!
Yes, I know you can use your keyboard to get those functions, but it’s way more convenient to have them in the post edit toolbar and just click with the mouse.
I use them often, especially the Justify button, and I want to have them back on my toolbar!
Thank goodness there is a way to get them back! Here’s my video for a complete walk through to add back the Underline and Justify buttons:
If you can’t see the video for some reason, I will explain here:
#1) Add new plugin “Re-add text underline and justify” by going to your WordPress menu to the left:
- Select Plugins
- Then click Add New
- Search the name of the plugin “Re-add text underline and justify”
- Click on “Install Now”
- Click on “Activate”
#2) After you’ve installed the new plugin, you’ll go to your WordPress menu again:
- Select Settings
- Then click Writing
Here you’ll see a new option: “Editor Style” and if you look at the drop down, you’ll get three options.
The first option: “Default – without underline & justify buttons” (boooooo) does nothing, keeps it like it is with the 4.7 update.
The second option: “Re-add underline & justify buttons” adds the buttons back to where they were before the update, which you need to click on the Toolbar Toogle icon to see:
The third option: “Re-add underline & justify buttons + arrange” – my favorite option because this puts the buttons back where they should be: Underline button next to the text formatting buttons and Justify button next to the alignment buttons!
Another reason why I like this option is that you don’t have to toggle as often to get to these buttons, they are on the first level of the toolbar!
So happy to have these buttons back on my toolbar! Now I can write with ease again. 🙂
