    Wix, Weebly or Visual Composer

    So the big question remains. I have used all three editors and even thought I still use all three from time to time. For the most part I am a van if Visual Composer by WP Bakery. It would be nice to to have an editor that brings the function of all three editors into one neat and out of the box platform that can also integrate into WordPress.

    I am currently research drag-n-drop content editors and if anyone has one that they would like me to evaluate I would be more than happy to compare them to my hefty toolbox of resource. I have used all types of themes and content editors and drag-n-drop solutions and it falls to the three major dominating plateforms.

    While two of them are more of a subscription based solution, Visual Composer has an extended license available for only $150.00 that allows you to use it for all your website and webdesign needs.

    Check out the link below and if you believe you know of an editor that blows the top off one or all of these platforms I'd live to take the comparison chanllenge.

    Personally, I think most (all I have ever seen or used, anyway) drag-n-drop or WYSIWYG editors are terrible. They often bloat the code, are seldom any good for SEO, and are basically used by people who want to be designers and/or developers but are too lazy to out in the time and effort to learn how to code properly.

    It's a bit of an apples-to-oranges comparison in that you can't actually build a site with CKEditor; you integrate it as a WYSIWYG editor into the site of your choice and then process accordingly from there. So if you want to work with it, you're going to have to know a server-side programming language.

    However, as a WYSIWYG editor it beats the bricks off of anything else as far as generating clean code while adding WYSIWYG functionality. It's pretty customizable (you can come up with your own custom configurations for it) and it even can do things like convering Word-generated HTML into proper code. You'll still need to clean up some of the code it generates when it's posted, but that's easy enough to do; write a function that does all the finding / replacing of bad code with good code (what little there is) and you're out.

    This is one of the few open source products, and the only WYSIWYG editor, I recommend.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.
