I can’t see any editing tool while in edit mode (Firefox 48 on Mac). The only thing that is Wunderbar (german for wonderful) is the price … :-)

Are you referring to the live preview (or clicking on the image from the item’s homepage?) Shortly after the item was posted for the first time we noticed that Envato’s live preview doesn’t seem to work with Firefox. I’ve asked the,m to look into it.

It does seem to work with Safari. And you can also try the demo directly by visiting

If that’s not the problem you described, please write back and clarify.

Very beautiful

Really great and usefull.

If it had an ability to upload a separate featured image while resizing on upload it would be a winner.

Uploading images in such a scenario is too messy as you would have to trust people to resize them and not mess up your design.

I really appreciate your comments on this. I have debated about the “feature image” but have yet to decide quite how to implement the feature image specifically.

Wunderbar DOES allow you to upload images into your page or post, and one of the Wunderbar settings specifies which resized version is inserted into the content by default. Plus Wunderbar lets you get any existing image from the media library, which gives you additional chances to control size.

After you bring an image into the content, you can scale it further by dragging the image handles. That gives the user lots of control, but it does assume, as you say, that you trust people not to mess up the design. Would the ability to allow only the wordpress-defined sizes and prevent further resizing be useful to you?

Handy plugin to have to make changes/corrections on the go, but I have found a bug. When editing at the front end with this plugin and saving those changes, the WP post reverts to the default post category set by WP which then requires you to go into backend editing to correct. Kind of defeats the purpose…

Thanks for your interest in the Wunderbar, and thanks doubly for reporting the problem!

I was able to reproduce what you are seeing, and I believe I have a fix in place. If you would send me a brief note using the comment page on my website (, I will send you a file that I hope will fix the issue. If it does correct matters as I expect, the fix will be added into the next release.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

I have question. It will work with some visual theme designer? I used, and need to change editing page without this “html code” – I tried free version but it’s not working. Premium version will help?

Themler may or may not be useful with the Wunderbar. Some visual designers — Divi, for instance – manage their designs by inserting a lot of shortcodes into the page content to create Markup. The Wunderbar is not useful with these plugins. Others do a better job of using only regular HTML, and with these Wunderbar DOES work well.

The paid version of the Wunderbar edits Pages and Posts, including main content, excerpts, titles, and advanced custom files from the popular ACF plugin. It can edit visitor comments.

The full version includes with a Wunderbar Widget, which is like the Wordpress HTML widget, but which activates the Wunderbar editor on the front-end of the site to make WYSIWYG editing possible. There’s also a shortcode that can insert Wunderbar-editable content into other locations.

I would like to know if this plugin has to option to edit FontAwesom or Flaticons glyphs on a Wordpress theme?

Hello Larry, thanks for the prompt response.. I would like to go forward and get started on this project of mine. After purchase of Wunderbar is there another pluging I need to purchase?

The Fontawesome plugin is a free download found here—

I will write up some instructions and get them to you.

I have added the Fontawesome plugin succesfully added to Wunderbar and working on a development website. If you will visit the website and send me and email fro mthe contact page, I’ll email you back some instructions and files.

hello. i would to know if your plugin are works with rtl support, supports rtl languages on fonts, right to left and left to right buttons. also if the plugin can add google fonts and custom fonts. i use today wpedit pro and i want to change it/. are your plugin do the same or more? thanks

It does not come with rtl/ltr buttons normally. However, since it relies upon the CKEditor system to manage the WYSIWYG editing, it appears that like you could add the CKEditor “BIDI” plugin which adds those buttons. I have not tried it yet, but I see no reason that it could not be done, and I would be happy to assist you through the process.

The Wunderbar handles fonts by reviewing the fonts found in your website’s style sheets, and making those available to you. If you use a Google font in the CSS it should appear in Wunderbar’s font menu. We don’t do a drop-down list of all current Google fonts, as that would be excessively long.

Hi, can I edit the price of products in front-end with this add-on?

If you’re referring to Woocommerce products, I don’t believe so. Woocommerce product descriptions can be editable, but a product can have many pricing options and they should still be set from the Woocommerce back end.
