Developing Websites in WordPress using some the very sophisticated plug-ins, such as the one being tested here, Ultimate TinyMCE. Exclusively written for Lean Start Up Guide By the self taught website developer, Stephen C. Sanders who has developed nearly 100 distinct websites (many of them in WordPress) since the early days of what is now known as World Wide Web I, in the pre-September 11, 2001 era.
For quite some time I have wondered why I could there was not a simple and easy to use plug-in for WordPress that allows the use of different font styles. The following post really strives to thoroughly test out several features of the:
Ultimate TinyMCE plug-in for WordPress, developed by– Josh:
The following content is completely developed exclusively for LeanStartUpGuide.com and may be shared up to a typical feed size of approximately 255 characters (based on Google’s Blogging Tool) with the proviso that a link back is provided.
While the web developer who is financially responsible for the direct costs of this website naturally would appreciate the site’s name to be mentioned, a link back (such as those automatically provided by the Google Browser Based Blogging Tool) is also acceptable as reasonable benefit for this website.
Much of what I know about website development I have learned the hard way, by doing it.
For quite some time I have wondered why I could not have a simple thing such as different fonts on my WordPress website. It really made little sense to me that this was not a simple thing to have, after all, I have a nice choice of fonts on gmail.
Well today I am happy to report that this brand new website has implemented a free WordPress plug-in that accomplishes this! Now the plug-in (or others like it) may have been around for quite some time, yet it most likely required my sophistication as a developer to ascend to a certain comfort level in order to use an implement the plug-in.
Readers of this blog who are themselves doing some basic web development will be able to benefit from this website. I will allow people to join randomly initially, however later on I will require a simple sign-in form with verifiable facts.
Currently I have developed some relatively simple websites with social networking themes that have taken off due to me allowing random anonymous users to post on almost any topic.
Developers understand yet Those who Expect things to work Perfectly the first time around will be constantly frustrated.
Above is a Perfect Example!
I was trying out some powerful new Plugins above, and the apparent flaws you are now seeing is a perfect example of what happens all the time.
Visible Flaw number one: (Flaws in this post will not be fixed for the purposes of explaining some principles of web development in general.)
1) Prior to the two underlined link I was demonstrating a the use of a simple drop down font list that looks very similar to what I have (and often use) on g-mail. I even used a font called Courier New because I almost never use this font because it looks like a typewriter produced it. (PS– this explanation of flaws produced flaws of its own because I used the “standard” Word Press– WYSIWYG [ What You See Is What You Get ] editor to underline “Courier New”. I believe the quotes would have been equally grammatically correct, however can my reader understand that I am test driving this new (to me) plug-in for WordPress.
So when I tried to use two competing systems within the same block of Text to customize the type Of Text Displayed– I basically drove the Poor mindless Software system crazy, and now look at the latest Flaw! Have you ever Seen Text On a WordPress Blog Behave like This?
Okay, that’s enough. Really! I am Getting Dizzy!
Okay that blink effect is deliberate! (Nice little joke eh?)
So the plug-in is called Ultimate TinyMCE , not to be confused with an online video game called transfer mice. Its very powerful, customizable and free! Its a good idea to know what your doing when using this plug-in, or you can simply prepare yourself for the little glitches that are bound to occur.
Any truly lean start up will require the one person who is the founder to be be fully involved. The days of being “discovered” or all over! In case you actually believed the whole world was going to beat a path to your door, I am here to tell you, its just not true.
If your lean start up is a website then this particular website may be a huge asset for you depending upon your current knowledge of website development. This website will be posting links to other valuable resources, and someone who wants to get their feet wet in website development will find all sorts of help here and elsewhere.
If you have wanted to have more overall control of the actual look color, and features and over style of your blocks of text, then you may be ready to start using Ultimate TinyMCE, developed by Josh and available from WordPress for Free!
If you always wanted to have the full control of your blocks of text normally associated with CSS, then you really need to take a serious look at this plug-in. I would suggest you avoid adding the button choices available with this plug-ins that you do not clearly think you would use. Additionally the developer Josh recommends using Firefox as your browser for this plug-in for WordPress.
I had not been able to get the column feature to work using short codes, however I was not yet using the Firefox browser. Also I would suggest not trying to use the standard WordPress WYSIWYG features (buttons) within the same blocks (or paragraphs) of text, you will probably get some difficult to fix glitches, yet this is easily avoidable. Generally the Ultimate TinyMCE buttons are more colorful and you can also simply keep them on their own two rows (three and four).
The edit CSS Style button is amazing, yet the trick is knowing how to properly close the tags. I would suggest immediately after completing a stylized block of code (even before hitting the enter or space bar) toggle over to the html tab and hit close all codes.
The style button seems to keep resetting itself when you stop typing or move the cursor,
PS: There is a planned part two to this post, which I am ending here even though it is not yet complete. I have learned that post going on for significantly more than 500–700 words will rarely be read in one sitting.
