    Another great, easy to follow video. Thank you. I'm off to install Tiny MCE Advanced!

    Thanks for this insight although I rather not use plugins for something this simple but it makes it easier in case the client edits the page and lose the formatting.

  • Γιώργος Γεωργίου on January 24, 2017

    I prefer the Tiny MCE Advanced.

    Why the HELL does WP remove totally essential options, and make things unnecessarily difficult for the average user?? Why can't they design everything to look just like Microsoft Word for example, and just leave it like that? Surely a good software developer could design something like that. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." These changes are CRAZY.

  • tiffsaver on October 5, 2018

    I could only find Tiny MCE ANNOTATOR. I don't think this is the same thing, is it??
