WordPress 2.0 – Early Review
As noted yesterday, Mark Jaquith upgraded OTB to WordPress 2.0 over the weekend.
There are some good features to it but the most obvious change is the WYSIWYG editor. So far, I absolutely hate it. I haven’t quite given up on it but it is far more cumbersome than the old editor and it auto-inserts seemingly random code that takes longer to fix than if I’d just typed it in HTML to begin with.
Update: To clarify, the antecedent in “I absolutely hate it” is “the WYSIWYG editor,” not “WordPress 2.0.”Ã‚ While OTB continues to be quite sluggish for reasons we’ve yet to isolate, the new setup is faster and more elegant than its predecessors and the other new features will make the switch worthwhile even if I abandon the new editor.
