Spent most of the day working on Foliopress WYSIWYG together with Peter Baran.
Our solution for the WordPress WYSIWYG and image handling nightmare is coming along quite brilliantly well. This is what the basic toolbar looks like.
Foliopress WYSIWYG offers true What You See is What You Get Editing for WordPress.
- It is backwards compatible with legacy code (hello Xstandard/TinyMCE)
- It doesn’t break complex forms (hello TinyMCE/Xstandard)
- It doesn’t discard whole posts (hello Xstandard)
- It doesn’t go haywire and create more and more nested P tags (hello WYSIWYG Pro)
- It doesn’t look like hell in the WordPress interface (hello normal FCK)
- It doesn’t make uploading images a never ending and hopeless struggle (hello WordPress uploader)
- It doesn’t make your clients hopping mad and lead them to breaking everything (Plaintext/RAW html)
- Your drafts look like exactly like your posts will, without having to waste time with a preview function (hello Xstandard)
- You have unlimited standard undo from the keyboard (hello Xstandard)
- Very easy to configure (including site WYSIWYG) (hello Xstandard, TinyMCE, FCK)
In short, Foliopress WYSIWYG is what you always wished the WordPress Editor would do. I’m using it now and can’t believe no one created and editor like this earlier.
