Hello, I was all psyched to finally install the latest version of WordPress 2.5 on my site, and already I'm not so sure about it... I do like some things about it, and I'm sure that I will find many more, but (also after checking the forum upon its very early release, and noticing quite a few users having problems with it), I am wondering if there are some issues with Version 2.5.
First of all, I noticed already that the WYSIWIG editor did not keep previous content "intact" upon editing, as promised:
Friendlier visual post editor — I’m not sure how to articulate this improvement except to say “it doesn’t mess with your code anymore.” We’re now using version 3.0 of TinyMCE, which means better compatibility with Safari, and we’ve paid particular attention this release to its integration and interaction with complex HTML...
For example, the first post I tried to make and then edit after going from 'HTML' to 'Visual' mode in the post editing window screwed up the appearance of the post immediately after I hit 'SAVE'.
I also could not get anything to appear at all in the pop-up window once I highlighted some text and tried to 'INSERT A LINK' while preparing a post....
This already gives me great concerns, both for preserving the integrity of content as far as editing for my site, and for the fact that I was considering going to a complete WP blog-style format for my entire site just recently, but now I feel I must have some serious doubts about this.
I do appreciate all the WordPress coders efforts, I still think this is a great product, and I have confidence that the developer community can help work out any bugs (I am willing to help out to by reporting any issues I at least may encounter).
Thanks so much to anyone who can offer any useful feedback on this.
