Good but be careful with magic html code button
By , for WP 3.8.1

The magic html code button was the one interesting me the most but it seems the changes to html code are not correctly saved this way.
Other buttons are great.
Edit : I have to apologize. I end up to understand that this HTML problem comes from WP iself.

Usefull, but please un-style on the plugin page!
By , for WP 3.8

This plugin is very useful, but I wish they wouldn't style their row on the plugins page. It looks gaudy and is the only one doing it. Besides that, the plugin is very useful and I like being able to select which items I need for the wysiwyg editor.

WAY better than the regular WP editor
By , for WP 3.6

It takes quite a lot of setup time, as the default rows tend to run too wide. Probably best to edit with full-screen.

But the tools within are plentiful indeed, and so needed.

Nice Plugin, But
By , for WP 3.5.2

The graphics that you use in this plugin are distracting away from the quality of the coding and support. I'm not trying to be harsh, but the graphics look a little like a clown got spun through a blender and the results became the theme.

I had to drop this because it looked too cheesy. I know it's a great plugin, but ugly is ugly.

Maybe find a friend who is a designer and come up with something more stylish? Just a thought.

It's still worth using, It's a great plugin, It's not pretty though, It's like Gimp gone wild (for me).

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.

Works ok but copy-paste problem troubles me.
By , for WP 3.5.1

Configuration page is very good .
Also tables functionality that i tested is very good.

Copy paste wont work . Tried with ~/pathtoprofile/user.js but nothing. I get a ff message of no support.

Email button wont work also.

Very neat and effective.

Before someone jumps and criticize me, remember, this is the first time I have installed this plugin and I am writing my views within 45 minutes of its first use. I am a person who explores things extensively first and then write the review. However, this plugin is so impressive that I am compelled to report almost immediately.

Very neat and efficient UI. It makes writing a blog much more fun, taking away the pressure and limits of formatting the way I want to present my article. As a ardent writer, I could not ask for more. Of course there is this never ending 'wishlist' and I am sure in future some of those things will feature. Some won't. It is just a matter of personal likes and preferences.

I would have given 5 stars, had it not been that little annoyance of buttons/icons scrolling off the screen and inability to have more customization control on configuration of editor UI. Then again, it is just me. Others, should not hold that against the author. Overall, it is a wonderful plugin and I strongly recommend it. I have replaced that on all my blogs and recommended it to all my friends/associates who use WordPress.

Thanks for the last 4.2 carefull

Great Service from Plugin Creator
By , for WP 3.5.1

I gave this 4 out of 5 starts only because I haven't had a chance to use the plugin yet. However, I had a problem on my end installing it. Josh, the creator, took a personal interest, and walked me through some steps to get it up and running. With this attention to detail in my interest and wish to use his product, I have no doubt that the product has also benefited from Josh's level of service.
