I Hate WordPress's Post Editor

Discussion in 'WordPress' started by Help Desk, Jan 10, 2007.

    I really enjoy WordPress overall. I am a ASP.Net/MS-SQL person but chose WordPress/MySQL because it is the best solution out there.

    However, I HATE the default editor. Even the basic view changes any sort of HTML or JavaScript that I try to post. Is there anything better out there?

    Users --> Uncheck 'Use the visual rich editor when writing'

    I personally use Ecto, but since you're a MS guy [I am too] you may want to check out live writer, developed by Microsoft for use on their live spaces, it is WordPress compatible.

    and the price is great = FREE.

    I haven't tried it but I'd be curious to see what you think.

    It's essential to use an offline editor with WordPress, you'll go crazy if you don't.

    I agree with affers if you want to write with code take off the rich editor -- i have to do this for any video I want to embed or it is garbage

    Just installed and posted a post, it was nice but Windows Live Writer couldn't get confirmation that the post was published so it is kept as draft in Live Writer even though it successfully published. I may try ecto.

    Go ahead and use Windows Live Writer for a very new experience of authoring on a blog. Read the "Complete Guide - Windows Live Writer" available on "Internet Techies" blog.
