Is it just me or has something seriously changed with the editor in WordPress now? I am in constant battles with it changing my html code and not only that, I can’t see my selectors anymore. Even in the html view if you add the “code” selector around something, it moves outside what I just wrapped. I am also seeing it strips out a lot of my own code…
As a web designer, it’s beyond me why these developers of editors feel they need to make editors change the designers coding. THIS DRIVES ME NUTS!!!!!!!!!! LEAVE MY CODE ALONE!!!!!!!!
This was the same issue with the Joomla cms until not too long ago a third party developer finally listened and provided the end-user the ability to turn off code cleaning so that the user can do their own without being worried as soon as they click Apply or Save, that their code would be stripped out or changed.
Whatever was changed with this editor plugin in WordPress, the developers need to listen to people and to stop messing with peoples own coding. Also, while on the subject, the most critical part of any CMS is the content editor, so why the WordPress one is so limited in features and functions is puzzling. CMS = Content Management (hence emphasis on “content”).
Just putting my two cents in…hopefully others will add their frustrations with the editor here too and let these developers know not to mess with a person’s own code.
