Excellent support, but a temporary problem with the plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

Part of my site was broken temporarily by this plugin -- it caused a key dashboard menu item (the theme options menu for the Builder theme that I use) to disappear. This caused some panic on my part, and it took me a while to track down the source of the problem. Kudos to the author for providing a quick response after I posted an item on the support forum. The fix was simple (deleting and re-installing the plugin) and worked. But the erratic behavior gives me some pause to keep using this plugin.

Works well; features need to be "settled"
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plug-in unleashes AJAX for the masses. No question, it's good stuff and essential to turning out well-manicured posts.

Its strength is also a weakness, though. Strength: the author knows his stuff, responds to support questions, and is obsessive about UI appearance and layout. Weakness: each update (and they are fairly frequent) seems to introduce a new tweak or change of mind that requires the user to go through all the preferences again. The current version, for example, brought a restructuring of the button preferences that required a reset of the preferences database. That meant having to go through every single button preference, checking on/off preferences for each one in the former "second button group."

It's great to have such a committed and responsive plug-in author. If it weren't for the feeling of quiet dread I have every time I see an update notice, I'd give this plug-in 5 stars without reservation. I would really encourage him to spend some time "fixing" the UI by settling on a definitive layout for it and then leaving it alone.

Fantastic plugin - one of my foundation blocks.

This is an amazing plugin. I should have written it up long ago. Brilliant, thanks Josh.

Soon after installing tinyMCE the first time I was hooked on some of the more basic features that this plugin adds to the wp text editor. With a multitude of parameters to choose from you cant go wrong installing it. Saves me from messing about in html mode... a lot.

Great Plugin

It makes it easy on the clients to add content of their own!

Ultimate Tiny MCE is the Ultimate!
By , for WP 3.5.1

If you are a great "writer", but a "not so great" WordPress "code person", then Ultimate TinyMCE is for you. This plug-in is the best, most useful plug-in I have added to my site yet. It is basically an "enhanced" text editor, but using the word "enhanced" is an understatement! Josh Lob has incorporated every possible option into this great plug-in. In fact, with each and every upgrade, he continues to add more and more useful options to this already great plug-in.

I have given it 5 stars (one of the only 5-star reviews I have ever given) because it truly deserves it. The plug-in is constantly being upgraded with great new add-ons. Plus, although they offer a "pro" version which I will gladly buy once I can afford it, the free version is full of useful formatting tools and does not leave you "needing" to buy the pro version, unlike some other plug-ins which merely entice you to try the free version knowing full well you MUST by the "paid" version for the plug-in to be useful. This is definitely NOT the case here.

Summarized, this is a great plug-in from a great writer and I highly recommend it. Oh, and did I mention the support is great too!

[Solved] Latest version (4.6) conflicts with Nextgen Gallery
By , for WP 3.5.1

Dear plugin authors,

Thank you for making this great plugin.

I'm facing an issue that Ultimate TinyMCE is the cause that makes Nextgen Gallery disappeared from my admin page.

Thank you.
