Support » Plugin: WP Edit » The successor falls flat IMO

  • I loved the previous plugin, Ultimate, now being forced to use this one had left me with a sour taste.

    A good deal of the basic functions of Ultimate are either gone or now premium. And you can now only edit the top row until you purchase pro.

    I understand this is a business for the developer, but distributing a pared down version and charging for it does not entice me.

    I host/work on/develop over 100 sites. $35 per site and @279 developer has me reconsidering the editor I had previously abandoned, unfortunately.

    I loved ultimate, I love the potential for this, just stung a bit by the execution.

    I understand, and appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment and rating.

    I would encourage you to read the following two articles I wrote:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/wp-edit-and-wordpress-39-please-read?replies=40
    http://learn.wpeditpro.com/wordpress-tinymce-editor/

    I’m sure it will explain more regarding the drastic changes in the new WordPress version 3.9; the inclusion (by WordPress) of the new TinyMCE version 4; and how this affected my plugins.

    Again, thank you for your time.

    I completely understand the issues you ran into and am sympathetic to how core changes can sting us all.

    One example of what I mean by execution is the ability to turn on column codes. This is great for making sure the sites that were built in ultimate still work. However, the button to access an easy list of shortcodes is in the premium only. We have a function, but no easy access to use it. To have all of the buttons only available in the first row is cumbersome.

    This is the execution I was thinking of. As I mentioned I love the potential you have here and see you creating another wonderful editor. As a one man shop, my budget simply does allow the cost.
