WYSIWYG editor

  1. francismaile

    3.9 looks great. But still, the editor is not the same width as the content area on the site. Until it is, it is not really WYSIWYG.

    Can someone please make the visual editor the same width as the content area on the front end?

    Best editor than ever, WordPress done this automatically via replace "align" ( is remove in HTML5 ) by "Class" so i have never seen the better editor than WordPress Editor, so nothing to do or complane with WordPress editor !

    The think you should do now is add something missing to CSS in theme to look like in admin's post !

    Perhaps I am missing something here. Surely there Is more to WYSIWYG than content area? Wouldn't WYSIWYG require real-time, in-template editing.

    We're working on that, actually, Front end Editor :)

    I second this one. The one main thing WordPress needs is a true non code based drag/drop/click on elements etc to design and change web sites. It is so cumbersome and frustrating not to be able to do this without getting deep into the code.

    Few examples -

    Would be great to simply drag the header image to the size you would like

    Right click on the menu bar to change it's color

    Drop a text box onto the header so you can put in your contact information on the front page

    Things like this...

    One sees gorgeous looking templates all over the place, but for an average person to easily create those looks is much more difficult than our esteemed colleagues that really know PHP/CSS/Jscript etc realize.

    Hi All,

    I dont say WP default editor has issues but if you want to have greater flexibility of content publishing and formatting of the frontend UI, I have a suggestion here.

    You could use Page Layout Builder plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/page-layout-builder/ ) -

    Drag and Drop Responsive Page Builder / Layout Builder / Content Builder for WordPress. Start inside active theme or blank canvas. Trust me, it works like a charm !! Hope this helps
