Editor Switcher is a simple add-on that allows you to quickly and conveniently disable the WYSIWYG editor in the Joomla administrative backend or to switch between the available editors as required.
For example, when you need to edit a module or article that contains code normally stripped out by most WYSIWYG editors, Editor Switcher allows you to avoid the rather tedious task of switching the editor in Joomla’s global configuration area (both before AND after editing the content) and thus saves time and frustration.
Upon installation, a lightweight drop-down menu with the available editor options is displayed at the top-right of the administration area so that you never have to navigate away from your content to make changes with the appropriate editor (or no editor at all).
Editor Switcher has been written from the ground-up as a native extension for Joomla 2.5 and subsequent versions.
