Using an Alternate Editor for Postings

Yesterday I installed a plug-in for WordPress to replace the current "rich editor" with another.  WordPress by default uses the Lite TinyMCE editor, which provides some what you see is what you get type editing. Not too powerful, but enough to allow one to bold text and insert images & links.

The one that I’m trying out now is called FCKEditor and is installed via ChenPress plug-in. It provides tons of options, but isn’t quite compatible with the default one. I have to be very careful if I need to update a page or posting. I’ll try it for a while and see what happens.

The image shown here is a portion of the screen and was borrowed from the FCKeditor website. And before you mis-read the name, its maintained and developed by FredCK.com – so don’t go thinking that its saying something its not.
