In the massive WordPress Plugin world, sometimes it’s easy to go overboard.
Which plugins should you keep in your toolbox no matter what type of blog you have or how many? One of them is the TinyMCE Advanced. This super duper plugin is one of the best plugin finds for my WordPress blog that I’ve ever found. It was totally frustrating to me as a new blogger to have so few options and so little control over how my posts and pages looked. In the basic WordPress editor, there isn’t much you can do to spiff things up. Here’s what my basic editor in “Visual” looked like:
By the way, did you know that your visual editor is a WYSIWYG editor? Sound scary? It’s not. WYSIWYG is an acronym for “what you see is what you get”. Just one more example of how technology with WordPress isn’t really that techie. Once you have a mentor to show you how it works, WordPress is easy.
Here’s what my editor looks like with TinyMCE Advanced
I can change the Fonts, sizes, add video by simply dropping in the link to the video and so much more! I only chose a few of the options to show on my editor, there are lots more.
Oh yeah, did I mention that it’s free? Just go to your plugins on your blogs dashboard, add new, and type in TinyMCE Advanced. Then just add it and activate. It’s that simple to have so many more features to make your blog more interesting and attractive.
