    Please consider Mercury Editor http://jejacks0n.github.io/mercury/ , it looks SO much easier and intuitive to use. WordPress has all that fancy coding but totally neglected the main point of a CMS, which is CONTENT, and you cab't have to struggle TOO MUCH in order to create some...

    Changing editor and/or develop another is a project in itself, and in my opinion this is not the WordPress team to deal with this task.

    While we're discussing changing the editor, why not integrate something like CodeMirror into the theme editor? That'd make editing code so much nicer.

    There is already a WordPress variant for Aloha in existence, which seems like a pretty good choice even if you don't subscribe to the Concrete5/Joomla method of content editing. It could easily be placed over wysiwig areas on the back end - though front end direct edit capability would be a natural option in the settings.

    Which is a more advanced version of

    NicEdit is basically a lightweight version of what we already have

    But I'm a fan of the tabbed approach, even if it does tread close to what Microsoft is already doing. It gives plugin developers somewhere to put their custom buttons without crowding the interface. If someone installs 70 plugins and crowds the tabs, that's their problem.

    Also, I'm 100% on board with adding codemirror functionality to the source tab.

    I love shortcodes, but people get confused when they edit a beautiful page and see a bunch of code. I wish the visual editor could display the graphic elements of shortcodes.

    The existing editor is too basic. We need highlighting of reserved words and automatic indenting.

    This for me is probably the single most important improvement WordPress can make at this time.

    The visual editor is such a crucial part of WordPress for many, especially those who like clean code such as myself, and should be a given as a CORE component. We should not have to rely on a plugin for proper editing.

    Just last night I was updating a page using the text editor, and two tags with no line-break or space in between them constantly had a p tag inserted between them, which messed up my formatting. Had to resort to CSS to fix.

    Please make this a priority WordPress team. Thanks in advance.
