    What editor do you use – the visual rich editor (WYSIWYG) editor or the regular editor?

    I used in the Rich text editor, but recently switched to the reular one

    I use the rich editor, and switch to the html code when I have to put in accents on the letters.

    yep, same here.

    the html editor works well enough, when you master its limitations.
    and the plain editor texturizes your posts just as badly, you just don’t get to see the f*@# ups before you post.

    Word adds all sorts of weird background stuff I find. I use BlogJet to write my posts (except my photos which I blog from Flckr as I dislike the way they look if I upload from wp) and the WP wsywyg to do minor tweaks.

    I loathe and despise the rich text editor. The downside to this is that I am so used to adding my own html tags to format stuff I now find myself doing it in Word.

    I shut off the text rich editor within a couple of days of arriving here. I lack the skills to use it eefectively and I’m here to blog not to code juat like the advertising says. But I also have a query to make: why was this thread commenced? Is there a support issue re: the text rich editor that I haven’t picked up on? (I also note the thread lacks any tags.)

    The standard one. I actually have FAQs on how to strip out TinyMCE for some of our platforms. (ie phpNuke)

    #23909

    for the record, on my own blog, where i occassionally have need to throw some fancy html, i post from flock (whose html editor is a tab, and just works™), and then add tags and categories.

    generally, i despise wp-texturize more than MCE itself.

    Sometimes I don’t understand the words you use. This is one of those times.
    (1) what is phpNuke?
    (2) is wp-texturise Microsoft Word or something else?
    (3) and is MCE the text rich editor or something else?

    #23922

    (1) phpNuke is the forums software he uses for that ‘alternate’ support forum
    (2) wp-texturize is part of wordpress (hence the wp) that ‘fixes’ your posts when you hit publish (stripping multiple <br />‘s, empty paragraphs, turning <div>‘s into autoclosing entities, so on an so forth.
    (3)tinyMCE is the open source project that built the rich text editor. it’s bundled into wordpress, but it’s available for many other blogging/wiki/forum packages. including phpNuke.

    I use the Rich Text editor and only go to the HTML one for specific changes.

    No WYSIWYG editor for me, I turned that off as I used to have problems posting images with it.

    I use the regular one because I think when I used the Rich Text one, it lumped everything into one paragraph.
