You have to understand that the shop owner is whom I must please. If he places a pic in the wp ed and it moves something or doesn't go "exactly" where he wants...well...then the whole thing is useless. I know very well how to handle and manipulate it the way "I" see fit. That just won't cut it for him. Once I have all the background work etc...done then he can add projects and whatever he wishes. My plan is to design him several layouts in template form ie: tables, layers...what have ya...lol My plan "B" is to have him build these "posts"(and "page inserts" if you will...) in say...simple dtp and or Coffee cup...then YES paste the HTML into the wp ed. In doing this I will make LOTS of small business owners ecstatically happy as a pig in mud. THEN...I will go forward and write my own mods to handle this...a REAL CMS easy enough to use by Grandpa...lol
Go to CSS-tricks...watch the Video-casts...Chris is a very smart man and I know he would be pleased with what I have done and where I WILL take this. Your "opinion" is appreciated. I just don't think you quite understand what and whom I am dealing with. lol
The question "aim" is simple. I need simplicity in the editor. Real WYSIWYG...HTML should have come farther than it has...yet it has not. It is weak, unorganized, and simply useless. I see HTML on the way out. You see...I used to work in SGML...Now you have DTP software that was a take off from that, and it IS wysiwyg.
