WP-Editor.com review on WP Tavern

Despite the WP Editor project being a work in progress, I found the three plugins that are currently available easy to use without needing a manual to get me started. While many themes provide the same functionality through the use of shortcodes, if a user were to switch themes, those styles would disappear. By using a plugin to add these visual elements, users are safe to switch themes without losing the look of their styled content. These plugins are a solid way to easily add visual punch to otherwise boring text.

WordPress Visual Editor: Page Builder, Shortcode, TinyMCE

Content in a site is the main dish, and creating content in WordPress is simple. WordPress uses TinyMCE as content editor, we can also spice up our content with shortcodes to create complex content layout.

Last month I launch WP-Editor.com. A simpler way to create buttons, boxes, even column in WordPress Visual Editor. It’s still very limited in term of functionality, but it’s amazing to know that we can do this in WordPress default content editor.

How to add “Next Page”/ “Page Break” button in WordPress Editor

In WordPress we can separate post/pages using <!--nextpage-->. It’s hard to remember the tag, and you need to add it using “Text” editor, not visual editor. This is  how you can add “Next Page” or “Page Break” button in Visual Editor, Just like this:

Having fun while designing WordPress theme with dual monitor and live.js

EEEPC 1025CE Dual Monitor
EEEPC 1025CE Dual Monitor

I never thought that dual monitor will be very productive and fun. I don’t even open several windows in my monitor because it’s too distracting. I always open each window in full screen.  But not anymore with live.js and dual monitor.  It’s really fun ! Read More Having fun while designing WordPress theme with dual monitor and live.js

Tungdo did something interesting.
http://devpress.com/dp-dashboard-chronicles-love-and-hate/.

But I’m not interested. It was like building bbpress theme, or buddypress theme.

I think it’s something wp core need to do. If wp.com use wp.org to steal post format from tumblr. They should do it again for better admin UI. (And they are doing it right now)

However admin theme plugin (alpha) by Justin is awesome. (Didn’t know it was so simple)
