[resolved] Why I don't like 2.0? (5 posts)

    I don't see any new features of 2.0 attract me, on the contrary, I thought the rich-text tool will be a good upgrade but found it very annoying. I coundn't find how to use "quote" with one click, instead, I need to use ALT+q to enable it and after that the text is coming out from the quote table. I couldn't see the raw codes of my posts and I cannot even change the font and color using the new rich-text tool. Would anyone help me?
    Maybe it just needs time to be discovered but I found quite easy and unique of the 1.5 version but disappointed with the 2.0 one.
    Thank you for your work though, but this is just my opinion.

    You can turn of the WYSIWYG under Users > Your Profile.

    I'm seeing problems with the WYSIWYG editor and multiple-level ordered & unordered lists.

    If I want this:

    * first item
    * indented item
    * second item

    I get this:
    <ul><li>first item</li>
    <ul><li>indented item</li>
    <ul><li>second item</li>

    Similar problem with ordered lists.

    Just re-read the release announcement:

    "and while it’s not perfect yet (for instance nested lists can cause trouble) for 95% of what you do post-to-post the WYSIWYG should save you time."

    guess it is already known!

    It has taken me a bit to get used to tinyMCE, but I'm getting there. My main gripe is that it does not have a spell checker. 1.5.x didn't either, but I could use the firefox googlebar spell checker to check my posts, but this does not work with 2.0

    I have seen some hacks on this talked about on this forum, but I generally stay away from customizing WP code much. I look forward to a solution that is part of the regular distro.
