Next WordPress release will have visual editor for posts

WordPress founding developer Matt Mullenweg announced in his blog that the next version of the blog script (1.6) will have an integrated What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor Ė tinyMCE.

Users, however, will have an option to turn the WYSIWYG editor off.

Iíve long wanted to install a WYSIWYG plugin for a few of the WordPress sites I help run but I couldnít make the plugin at www.mudbomb .com run. The WYSIWYG interface gets loaded but I couldnít use it to write or even edit posts. Thereís another plugin Ė Chen press but I havenít tried it yet.

For many users, a WYSIWYG editor is ideal because it offers a push button interface -similar to Microsoft Word – to format your blog posts. Iíve tried tinyMCE with Mambo CMS and never had problems using it.
