It’s not that the Visual Rich Editor (idiot editor) for Wordpress is a bad thing or defective in some way, it’s just that the Visual Rich Editor is a crutch and you’ve made it this far - it won’t hurt to learn a little html and use the real post edit screen… the way it was meant to be.

As a developer, I’ve seen the Visual Rich Editor cause more problems than it solved. To me, that means one thing - don’t use it.

To turn the Visual Rich Editor for Wordpress off, look under the Users tab and click the Your Profile tab. The editor is disabled by default and you will to uncheck the box for the editor to free yourself from the idiot editor.

Turn off the visual rich editor for Wordpress

There is nothing difficult about using the regular post editor. If you are going to take your blogging seriously, you need to learn to do some of the things the regular post editor will force you to do like place a class in an image to float it left or right.

Do yourself a favor, turn the idiot editor off and learn to post the right way.

    Speaking from experience, I couldn’t agree more. After you get burned once or twice with the Wordpress Visual Rich Editor, you’ll turn it off.

    Make 10 posts without the Visual Rich Editor and you’ll be a pro at it. And, you won’t have to worry about it messing everything up.
