An Eternal Quest for Incremental Improvement

Wordpress editor annoyance

Ever since my update of Wordpress to 2.0 from 1.5, I was facing more annonyance than any help from the new so called, "Visual rich editor". I think that it is the same case with most of the Wordpress users. In the view of helping novice Wordpress users, this feature has made the life of a lot of experienced users' life miserable. After quite some time, I found out the way of disabling it. It is found in the page "Your profile" under "Users" tab. In the above page there is a checkbox labelled "Use the visual rich editor when writing" under "Personal options" category (last section). Once unchecked, I got the old powerful editor interface. Atlast I got rid of this nasty WYSIWIG editor. Thank God!
