Rich Text Editor


Rich Text Editor for WordPress [Rich Text Editor for WordPress]( « Rich Text Editor for WordPress »1) is by far the fastest, cleanest, most powerful online wysiwyg content editor. It replaces default WordPress wysiwyg(what you see is what you get) editor with a more advanced wysiwyg editor.

Some of the features added by this plugin

  • Support for creating and editing tables.
  • More options when inserting lists.
  • Search and Replace in the editor.
  • Ability to set Font Family and Font Size.
  • And many others.

Rich Text Editor toolbar is completely configurable and it is also effortless to implement. This Advanced WordPress Editor plug-in is compatible with the WordPress v. 3.0+.

#1 cross-browser support

Most available RTEs fail to support the full spectrum of A-Grade web browsers. Following 9 year old tradition of industry #1 cross-browser support, Rich Text Editor for WordPress continues to offer even better quality and compatibility by supporting all major browsers: IE 6.0+, Firefox 2.0+, Mozilla 1.3+, Netscape 7+, Safari (1.3+), Opera 9.0, IE 9 and Chrome.

Cleanest html code

Most WYSIWYG editors are just JavaScript wrappers around the editing control built into browsers such as MSHTML control found in IE. They generate bad markups and then run code clean-up routines against it. By contrast, Rich Text Editor for WordPress is built from the ground up to be a true XHTML editor in its own right.

Extremely small and fast

Most feature-rich WYSIWYG editors suffer long loading times due to large javascript files. Rich Text Editor for WordPress only loads the necessaery scripts to client browsers. Numerous optimization methods have been applied. It’s clean, compact, extremely fast-loading, but still powerful and efficient.

Insert clean HTML from Microsoft Word

I really wanted to like this editor but it crashed my whole post/page editor, so I have had to deactivate it. Here’s the error message I received: Warning: DOMDocument::load(): I/O warning : failed to load external entity « /home/…/public_html/wp-admin/richtexteditor/config/default.config » in /home/…/public_html/wp-content/plugins/richtexteditor/richtexteditor/include_rte.php on line 2194 P.S. it’s new WP installation without anything yet

The biggest bug for me thus far is it removes all formatting on anything edited not initially created with it. A.k.a. comments, when I go to edit bam, all formatting is removed. On large comments this is tiresome. Also, there are a lot of small bugs, like the link button doesn’t always work as it should, auto-filling with in house links and will not allow you to write one in until that section is completely re-written. Those are just the first 2 and I know there is a bunch just don’t feel like writing them all down. Suffice it to say if you can overlook, fix, or ignore the bugs it has more options than any other editor and I would really like to keep using it but until the formatting issue is fixed, I can’t.
