Tables in posts

Finally I can add tables to WP content without doing the HTML by hand.

Nice and Easy :)

Mejora mucho el editor que por defecto viene con wordpress, aunque podía ser más intuitivo

totally frustrating
By , for WP 3.9

I manage my content, and do not use code. I have a developer for that. I was extremely comfortable with the older version. I added pages and posts. I found it easy to change font colors and eliminate borders from images. With the new update I am totally frustrated. I try to edit images, and add "border: 0pt none;" and I cannot make the "ok" button work to apply the change. I cannot change color of the fonts. I don't want to learn code or call the developer every time I post. I want my functionality back. Help!!

from great to greatly disappointing
By , for WP 3.9

Seems like an oxymoron to call this version advanced compared to the previous version 3. It seems really dumbed down. No more shortcodes, line breaks, link-refs, etc. Sure, you can tediously edit the html and add <br clear="all"> tag, but then the dumb visual editor will remove all <br> tags, even if you set the filter option not to. Since this is the only editor available for WP, maybe its time to start looking at Joomla or going back to WP 3.8. Very disappointing. Unfortunately new and novice users to WP will be oblivious to what they are missing.

Still my favourite

Although I preferred it before WP3.9, it's still a first install on all my sites.

It's getting better and better

I've been using TinyMCE Advanced for some years now, and installing the new version on a WP 3.9 site made me enthusiastic about the development of this plugin. There are many useful features and it gets better with every release.

Significant downgrade in capability
By , for WP 3.9

The latest version of TinyMCE eliminates features that most people use for routine production of web site content. Since WordPress has locked themselves into this program, it has dragged WP down with it, too. The elimination of simple image editing options forces users of WP to do their own coding for each image placed on a page or post. This has made WP v3.9 a disaster for most users that just want to get work done, not code their own pages. The plugin author and WP developers have put out a new product with no thought to obtaining feedback from actual users. Failure to get true "voice of customer" data when developing a product has resulted in many infamous failures in the market, even for the largest of companies (think, New Coke). I hope that WP and the author of this plugin (and TinyMCE) hear the tremendous negative response to WP 3.9 and quickly correct these problems. The frustration level grows daily for those of us who simply want to get work done as fast as possible.

Much better than WP Edit

Version 4.0.1 works flawlessly with WordPress 3.9, and offers far more features and functionality than WP Edit plug-in. Highly recommended!

Best TinyMCE Editor for WP

As Ultimate TinyMCE (WP Edit) gets more and more crippled TinyMCE Advanced is still free and has a lot of functions, highly recommended ;-)
