Works just fine, while everybody else is complaining about where to find the settings of this plugin. Just experience the great features (while logged in) and being in the front-end of the site. Select 'edit post' and see what it can do.
Installed it on 4.1 and other than saying plugin installed successfully, there was no other evidence that it exists. No setting I could see in control panel, and no new functionality on home page of site. Forum doesn't seem to have any recent responses. I thought this was the next big thing. Abandonware?
This could be a very useful tool but currently it seems to work in HTML editing mode rather than WordPress editing. If a page you edit has content that comes from, say a shopping cart plugin with a short code like:
[ mycart:id:1:end ]
the editor replaces that short code with the generated HTML content. This breaks the function of the other plugin. As it is, this plugin is off limits on my sites.
I guess everybody will need this editor to make working with wp more effective. Another aspect is that especialy people that are not used to work with backends will be lucky that they dont need to switch between front end Backend. less is more. I've seen older version of this plugin as well and I guess You are on the right way. Less options more clearity...
The best I found since years
Tough this is in early development beta stage, I'm not going to use it until the full release on my production site as I use WordPress MU. But I'm really exited to see this plugin as a core functionality of future WordPress.
This is my most expecting plugin of 2014.
Great work. I must say.
I tested all kinds of frontend editors, but this is the best one.
Hope to see this make it's way into core in the not too distant future
WordPress has long needed this functionality in this way, so well thought out and well made.
Still missing some little things (featured image does not appear on the frontend editor, for example), but overall the performance is fantastic. I was looking for a way to write straight from the frontend like you do on Medium, and this has almost the same benefits.
