Exactly how important is great content to your success? Think about this. The world’s most popular content management system powers more than 75 million blogs globally. Every month, over 409 million people view more than 23.7 billion pages published using this software. Its users produce nearly 1 billion new posts generating 534 million comments every year. Nearly 30% of the content on the internet is produced with this solution.
You may have guessed by now that I’m talking about WordPress. The world’s most popular open source CMS. One reason for this success is that it makes it incredibly easy for “non-technical” people to make great content.
Central to this success is TinyMCE, the visual editor in WordPress. It also happens to be the most popular open source rich-text editor in the world.
If you use or build websites with WordPress, in this post I’ll explain why a small investment in making TinyMCE more powerful can have an exponentially greater impact on your success.
Let’s get more of your most valuable asset
Spend enough time around very successful people, you’ll notice they value one thing above everything else. It’s not money. It’s time. I’ve found that these people are hyper-focused on the things that create the most impact.
The team behind TinyMCE is proud to release a set of solutions for WordPress that will improve your productivity, reduce costs, and most importantly give you more time to make an impact.
Build a scalable content creation process in WordPress
Work with any large media organization and you’ll see that they produce huge amounts of content with not only great teams, but by using the right tools. For the first time, the same content creation tools used some of the world’s largest businesses are now available for WordPress. And they’re easily within your reach, today.
For workflows involving the copying and pasting of content from Word, Excel and other HTML sources (which includes almost everyone), TinyMCE PowerPaste can save hundreds of hours of time by automatically cleaning a wide variety of hidden content that break WordPress styles.
If you work in a widely distributed team, like Automattic for example, brand consistency matters. Especially when oddly spelled company names or products are involved. We’re bringing TinyMCE Spell Checker Pro to WordPress, a professional solution delivering globally consistent spelling beyond the browser.
With the global scale of WordPress, being able to communicate with everyone is important. Including those with disabilities. In fact, the TinyMCE team have found that when we design for disability, we all benefit. But writing HTML accessible content is beyond the skillset of most authors. We’re very pleased to bring TinyMCE Accessibility Checker to WordPress to solve this problem with a simple “click-to-fix” interface.
Build rich media enhanced content with ease
More people are better informed about using rich media to engage audiences than ever before. We know that content is more dynamic, and that images and video are more engaging than the written word alone.
Now it’s easy, with TinyMCE Enhanced Media Embed. If you’re familiar with WordPress shortcode embeds, you know what we’re talking about. Except our solution automatically converts hyperlinks from more than 1,800 rich media sources into viewable media right inside the WordPress editor. It delivers an infinitely better content creation experience for authors.
Developers, get an IDE in your TinyMCE
Not wanting to ignore developers, or those of us who like to get our hands dirty in HTML, you can now add an IDE-like interface to the editor source view with TinyMCE Advanced Code Editor. Features like color syntax highlighting, bracket matching, code folding and multiple selections/carets benefit anyone who needs to edit raw HTML within WordPress.
Familiar tools ultimately lead to successful outcomes, more quickly. TinyMCE brought a familiar Word-like interface to WordPress, making it easier for people to adopt the system. Similarly, solutions like the Advanced Code Editor help people familiar with HTML feel more comfortable in the WordPress content creation environment.
One plugin to rule them all
Simple things are often the best. Which is why we made getting these solutions into WordPress as simple as possible.
