AddFunc IDs


Adds two convenient buttons to easily add/remove an id attribute to any element when editor a Post, Page or custom post type that uses a standard TinyMCE editor. Uses the text contained within the element, cleaned up, to formulate a URL-friendly id.


  • Look! This heading now has an id attribute because I clicked the "#" button!... You get the idea.


  1. Upload the entire /addfunc-ids folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory or download it from the WordPress repository.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
  3. Use the Add ID and Remove ID buttons as needed.


What does the Add ID button do?

It adds an id attribute to the selected element (or the element with the cursor in it) using the text within. Note: not recommended for use on paragraphs.

What does the Remove ID button do?

It removes any id attributes from the selected element (or the element with the cursor in it). Note: recommended for removing ridiculously long id attributes.

Where can I see the ID/id attribute?

You can see it in Text view. Example:

This is rad

Will AddFunc work in Text view?

Nope. It’s a TinyMCE thang.

Does AddFunc IDs work on custom content types, the same as they do on Posts and Pages?

It works in any custom content type that has a standard TinyMCE editor.

Does it really require WordPress 3.0.1 or later?

I have not tested it on earlier versions. I suspect it depends on the version of TinyMCE included with your WordPress install. Feel free to try it out and let us know if it works! 🙂

Does AddFunc have a website?

I was unable to find a plugin that would enable me to effortlessly add an id attribute using the obviously appropriate inner text for its string, without introducing more JavaScript to my website's frontend output. I felt this option would be most suitable as a WYSIWYG editor feature anyway, not an automatic "one size fits all" add-on. I'm very strategic about id attributes and I anticipate that the text might someday be changed. So, I can't have the id attribute automatically updating to the new text on its own—I link stuff to it! #duh #sometimes-i-dont-want-the-entire-line-of-text-used-in-the-id-attribute-string-because-that-would-just-be-insane So I need to be able to manually edit it. #thats-better That's why I built AddFunc IDs and I use it on all of my websites. #the-end
