The WP Edit Plugin allows you to add formatting and other features that are missing from the standard WordPress Editor.

This plugin replaces the Tiny MCE Editor that many people were using before WordPress upgraded to version 3.9, so if you are using the current WordPress version, you will need to replace the Tiny MCE editor with this one.

Thanks, Craig, for the clear instructions. I had this one installed and I loved it, but it slowed my site down something awful. Took it out. I may try it again.

I have been using it for quite a while and have noticed no issues with site speed.

When the site slowed down, I took off all the plug-ins and re-added them one at a time. That was the one that did it. However, on your recommendation, I am going to add it back because I really liked it!

Perhaps add a caching plugin, these usually help with site load times. Have you optimized your images? This is the other thing that seriously impacts site loading.

I guess the answer is no since I don't know what that means. I'll look it up. Thanks for the suggestion!

Thank you for sharing. It is a wonderful addition to the toolbox! It certainly simplifies some of the steps of the editing process. :))

This is awesome! I was advised at one point that Tiny MCE Editor had caused some issues for some people and maybe it would be better to avoid it. May I ask what your advice would be to the relative beginner on the WP Edit Plugin?

Use it sparingly, its nice to have but changing font sizes and colors all over your site doesn't provide a good user experience.

You can use it to emphasize an occasional point but try hard not to overuse the formatting options.
