[M]ake no mistake, as a long time blogger, I have a huge affection for HTML-heavy posts; I like to craft my articles with the necessary codes myself and admire the final product. But, let us face it, it is time consuming. It is wonderful, and fast, to replace a long piece of code with a few quick clicks of the mouse. Enter TinyMCE (or Tiny Moxiecode Content Editor) — a platform-independent editor that allows you to handle HTML with buttons along the lines of a desktop word processor. And taking things a long way further for WordPress — and, from today, for VHBelvadi.com too! — is awesome developer Josh Lobe’s Ultimate TinyMCE: ease offered on a silver platter for content creators like myself, who believe 24 hours a day is too little time, and most importantly for his major audience, bloggers who are not well-versed with HTML.
Today we introduce you to one of WordPress’ best TinyMCE plugins, ‘Ultimate TinyMCE’ created by developer Josh Lobe. Take a look at its many features, join us as we beautify our articles with his codework and give him appreciation over at his blog. Then download two free addons to start adding spice to your posts!
Features of Ultimate TinyMCE
Ultimate TinyMCE has a host of features that can redefine your blogging workflow, not to mention make it much quicker. Here we take a look at some of the important ones:
- Now featuring Emoticons! Currently included are the default 16 emoticons, as well as 32 new emoticons… with many more on the way.
- Powerful editor buttons for font properties; now you can add your own custom CSS using drop-down menus. No need for mucking around in HTML.
- Cut, Copy, and Paste
- Inserting a Horizontal Ruler
- Choose a background color
- Choose a foreground color
- Insert page anchors
- Add and edit individual tables and their properties.
- Search and replace text.
- Visual Control Characters
This is just a glimpse into Lobe’s wonderful work.
