WordPress Visual Editor is an easy-to-use text editing tool for creating and formatting posts.
The WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) feature of the Visual Editor ensures that the content published will be precisely as it was when the text was first created. Similar to Word and Pages, it is created to be simple to use.
In order to use it as its Visual Editor, WordPress contains a modified version of TinyMCE, an open-source WYSIWYG HTML editor. TinyMCE features a toolbar at the top for modifying document formatting and behaves similarly to desktop authoring programs like Word.
What features make Visual Editor useful?
Users don’t need to know HTML to compose posts in Visual Editor and easily format them using toolbar buttons. Additionally, users are able to contribute photographs, which can then be seen in the editor. Using the text alignment buttons in the editor, users can align images with their text.
Beginner’s Note: HTML code is a basic programming language for structuring content on websites, simply understanding HTML code is for search engines to easily identify what part of the content you are writing. For example, if you write a title you should put it in the heading tag, if you write a paragraph you should put it in the paragraph tag.
Similar to Word, the Visual Editor’s toolbar offers options for text formatting. Users can add photographs and other media to their articles using the “add media” button in the top left corner, and they can switch between text (HTML mode) and visual editing modes with the button in the top right corner.
Additionally, because TinyMCE is extensible, WordPress plugin creators can add their own buttons to the Visual Composer toolbar.
In order to mirror the look of the live site, themes can also add their own styles to the editor. The majority of the top-rated themes now come with a built-in Visual Editor that helps WordPress reach its full potential.
In conclusion, the WordPress Visual Editor is a user-friendly tool that makes it simple to create and format posts without using HTML code. It uses TinyMCE as its engine and provides a number of options for text formatting, image addition, and content customization. It is an advantageous feature for developing aesthetically pleasing content for WordPress websites because it can be expanded by plugins and themes.
