Why not impressed having to now use this upgrade!
By ,

Ok, so you have now launched a new version of Ultimate TinyMCE now calling it WP edit. Your pricing for this paid version sorry but way of Josh
(I think you will find many feel this!) and new people coming in will be totally put off. Ultimately and you will suffer personally Josh as a back lash and that kind of price you want! More on pricing below in a moment.

clarification needed for doing line height is this free or no longer available and only in pro?
On Ultimate TinyMCE we would alter any line height for text maybe headers where almost words touched each other by using the css option and choosing the option 'line height normal'...so is this available in WP edit free version?

Line Break feature come on Josh give us all a Break... pardon the pun! In your wisdom NOW charging for this specific feature?!! SPLUTTER....your kidding?
Just to do a line break now that is not going to be in your free version of WP edit....that is basic stuff an unfair I feel.

Yes I understand charges by developers, time and everything have to be made for special features aka your plug special things it does please bare in mind some though are really basic that were free and now you want to charge please reconsider basic over neat special things your plug wp edit does and distinction. As right now I feel you are clouded and are charging for standard pretty basic things that you have NOW moved into paid for version only!

***just my two cents observation here: Many developers who offer free plugins had to make time and effort with new 3.9 wp version though... and still did it bless them - just saying !

So on pricing - crazy how you arrived at this sorry!
We have several sites and firstly I really think your pricing is way too high on pro for one site use. maybe 17 bucks but 35 bucks... And I spat my coffee out geeez off the scale way, way to high for multiple wow oh my gosh! no way can we do that so two sites or more $130 odd dollars are you kidding! say $35 to $40 and that should be various levels of extreme customization hence pricing pro rate options (something to think about Josh?) as some folk have no need and even use many things we would'nt...

total deal breaker for us and no doubt countless people.... can't justify multiple pricing fee for what we are using your plug to do and only basic stuff.
And is no longer free and we have to pay to do that i.e. the two things we use your plug for mainly using line breaks (WP stips out line breaks sometimes and pain - though once I upgrade to 3.9 maybe it is cured)
and change word text height (which we can do by adding CSS height number to our theme style sheet anyway and will do I think...

I will be curious with your comments and feedback Josh and anyone!?

Very basic - does little more than TinyMCE
By , for WP 3.9

I don't what the purpose of the Plugin is except to serve as an advert for the Pro version.

It's hard to figure out if the Pro version would be much better, but think the free version offers too little and you have to buy the Pro version to find out if it works, and if it doesn't you're buying for nothing.

Not a happy camper
By , for WP 3.9

The loss of being able to select text and make it a header (or something else) is just too much. I can deal with the other stuff that went away and into WP Edit Pro. I do not LIKE it. But I can deal with it. I also think your pricing is too high on pro for one site use. And way to high for multiple. SO I'm using this plugin until I can find something better.

I think you should have talked to your USERS first about what they thought of your move before you made such a huge change. Fortunately I know HTML and CSS so I can still make decent posts/pages. BUT YOUR change has added to the time it takes for me to make those posts & pages. And THAT is a deal breaker for me.

Tips for use (how to delete the plugin)
By , for WP 3.9

After activating, skip to the "database" tab all the way to the right. Scroll to the bottom and check the box for deleting all the associated tables that WP edit installs. Then click the submit button. That way you'll have a cleaner database in the future.

Then click "Plugins" in your dashboard, scroll down to WP Edit and click "delete." When WordPress asks "Are you sure you wish to delete these files?," click "Yes, delete these files."

Enjoy!

Not so good
By , for WP 3.9

WP Edit replaces Ultimate Tiny MCE, as the old version was stated to be non-compatible with the latest version of WP (3.9). While this new version does work, it's definitely a huge step down. No longer can you choose fonts or edit images once they're inserted into the post - functions I relied heavily on in the past. Most of the other options you could choose to enhance the editor now appear to be gone.

Of course, you can purchase the pro version but $149 for a multi-site license is a bit steep for me, considering I have it set up but I don't use it and have no plans to in the near future.

Most of the 5-star reviews I read here sound like they were posted by friends of the developer or users that only need a very basic editor.

Until I can find something better I'll go back to the WP default editor.

Core features only available in PRO version
By , for WP 3.9

Standard editing features (Break, mail link, etc) are now only available in the PRO version.

Settings pages not intuitive.
Will be looking for a new alternative to TinyMCE.

This is a beta release at best
