Choose a better WYSIWYG editor
Yes. Possibilities to edit fonts -
other than by typing in the font tags and stuff -
is something I keep missing constantly.
Also when/if I need to add some code into a post,
it's a drag to go into the user options, turn off the
editor and then go back to edit the post. Grr!
It was suggested somewhere that there should be an option
to place code without it being automatically formatted by wp.
Also I would love an option to put in a post a small window
where I could type e.g. a sample of code for others to
copy-paste it into their own blogs.
If you need to turn off the WYSIWYG editor, simply edit your user profile and uncheck the option labeled:
Use the visual editor when writing
I administer one Drupal-based site. The only thing I like about Drupal is that its TinyMCE plugin allows you to customize which TinyMCE buttons are displayed, and to set this on a per-usergroup basis. TinyMCE can be a very capable editor, but WordPress's stripped-down version isn't as good as it could be. Supposedly, you can add options to it by editing WordPress's config files. A more user-friendly method would be helpful.
A WYSIWYG editor that actually functions properly on a Mac browser - Firefox or Safari - is absolutely essential. TinyMCE no workee.
Try EditorMonkey. http://www.rajprasad.net/plugins/editormonkey/
Totally absolutely agree with superfreakymemories - wysiwig needs to be COMPATIBLE with Macs. Also agree with converting2wp a wysiwig that will NOT let someone use a line break needs replacing! See also this thread Force line break inspite of Tiny MCE editor using a Mac that is still unresolved
TinyMCE doesn't cut it anyway at all. If you're going to bundle it at least provide instructions for how to excise it like the cancer it is.
TinyMCE is one of the best and I'm working with it on my projects very successful! Have a look at the demo page of tinymce. The should just be an option page for tinymce.
What about XStandard? http://www.xstandard.com/
I don't have much experience with it but I've heard some pretty good things. It might not be enough out of the box, but it's apparently highly configurable through XML files and a rich API.
while xstandard lite is free(ware), it's not open source; I couldn't find any licensing information on their site, but usually proprietary licensing means that it can't be bundled with wordpress, can't be extended, can't be modified and released as an open source app (wordpress plugin).
Hi, I am with the XStandard dev team. We have a special version of XStandard for open source CMS. Here are the details:
A number of open source CMS vendors are already part of this program including Joomla.
