If you have worked with WordPress one of the things you notice right away is how limited the Page and Post editor is. Very simple but not a lot of tools to work with. Well there’s a reason for this in that WordPress is Blog and used to create Post entries, a picture and paragraph.
With the popularity of WordPress growing, designers continue to push the limits.
Here’s the good news, you can replace the default editor with a Plugin. There are a variety of Editors you can install that will give you further functionality. Some work fairly well others are a bit buggy.
