After reading the 1 star reviews, my take on this revision of ultimate tiny mce is it is better for ordinary users and maybe not so much for developers. I stopped using ultimate because of the constant advertising. But I am glad that I tried wp-edit. I used to use tinymce but stopped because it would not show on the editor page of some special plugins I was testing and wp-edit would.
The colors for draft and status are interesting. If you use them, set them very light to make reading easier. This feature allowed me to easily catch a lesson in the 56 I had published that was still in draft. Once you know all are published or in the status you want, turn off the colors on the user specific settings.
The one thing that needs to be added to the show ID option are taxonomy pages so category IDs will show. Then there is no need for a separate plugin for showing page, post and category or other taxonomy IDs.
1 star for my for having trouble in finding features :)
Sorry for too fast and bad review.
Strong 4 stars now.
I have WPFront User Role Editor installed and when I logged in as Author and add new post, or edit existing post it break my site. It doesn't happen when I logged in and use the plugin as Admin user!
I've used Ultimate TinyMCE (the free version) for years on many, many sites. I've donated a few times, but I'm sure not enough looking back on the benefits I have reaped. I especially love the Code Magic button.
I'm going with the $70 version for now, to be able to update my own websites. I'll tack on a small fee to my hosting and upkeep charges to add it to clients' sites in the future.
Many thanks for the long hours Josh.
I initially got confused with some options that I thought it didn't allow except for purchasing the plugin.
Before you give it a bad rank, read about how to use it. I saw many options were 'nested' in a pull down menu that I didn't initially see.
And I really did love Ultimate TinyMce, however developing free plugins doesn't pay the rent... especially with WordPress changing the rules every few months and developer having to keep up. Good plugin.
I agree with some of the other reviews about missing features. However it is still a very decent editor. I like the plug-in authors idea of a stable version that we can be his tester for as I would like to see a few more of the essential functions back in the free (donation) version.
Congratulations on this completely reworked WP Edit, beautiful job on the UI, it is clean clear and well laid out. The interactive drag and drop is very nice.
I saw it also brings some goodies like Posts and pages revisions settings. This is a cruelly missing feature in WordPress, so always nice to have. I guess this is why the plugin now has a more generic name WP Edit :)
For those complaining about the step back from the old ultimate TinyMCE feature wise , I can understand the disappointment, but there is no justification for giving the developer a hard time about it.
I like free stuff like anyone else, but I don't expect it!
Developers giving you free plugins are giving you their time for nothing in return.
Nobody forces you to use free stuff you do not like, just move on, there is no need to behave like a spoiled internet child :)
