    Hi Yevhen -

    I'm looking at your plugin in behalf of the Plugins guardians. There are a couple of issues with the coding style as noted in the prechecker above. Can you fix these and resubmit?

    The prechecker reports can be run yourself by using the plugins:

    Or even better you can get a number of checks to run automatically (including behat tests) by integrating Travis-ci directly into your github repository:

    Some other notes:
    1. The "tinymce/editor_plugin.js" needs a header included to show its open source license.
    2. I note when I used the "preview" button that the "submit" button disappeared below the scroll. I don't think this disqualifies your plugin at all, but it would be good from a user experience to keep that portion visible.

    You have noted the two issues in the description, so that's good. I think once you fix the code style issues and the javascript header, you should be good.

    Thanks Yevhen for sharing the plugin with the community, and thanks Mike for detailed review. Assuming the raised coding style issues (mostly cosmetic and trivial to fix) will be fixed in a next update of the plugin, you are cleared to land now. Welcome to the Plugins directory!
