Am I Allowed To Disable The Editor For a Certain Post Format?


I am creating a blog theme, and I want to limit the content of the “Status” post format to 140 characters. I need to do that through a metabox since I didn’t manage to make the tinymce editor play nice, so I need to disable this editor so the user uses only the metabox. Is this allowed? Will my theme be rejected because of this? I intend to disable the editor only for the “Status” post format. What do you think?

I guess that your theme will not be rejected by the reason.

I would suggest to keep the tinymce editor as is. Nowadays, it is difficult to guess reviewers. Rules change every now and then. So, its better to be on the safer side.
