AR has been researching other blog edtor toolbars and may be revamping our current one.  Adding more tools to the already existing editor would make a few people's lives easier.  Are you wishing for the chance to easily change font styles, colors, or a word counter?  Tell me.....

If you could add 3 additions to the blog editor what would they be?


Current options include:

  • Bold
  • Italic
  • Underline
  • Strikethrough
  • Align Left
  • Align Center
  • Align Right
  • Align Full
  • Outdent
  • Indent
  • Unordered List
  • Ordered List
  • Insert/Edit Link
  • Unlink    
  • Insert/Edit Image
  • Preview
  • Spellcheck
  • HTML

Ok, it seems that we all agree that a 'font manipulator' :) would be great. But ALSO, how about the ability (like Hootsuite) to TIME our posts? For instance, we write them in the afternoon and schedule them for A.M. posting? Something I have OFTEN wanted, but not an IT person, so don't know the difficulty of that ability.

Most of what I want has already been discussed above. But, what about being able to add those videos directly like we are able to do with the Scribefire add on with Chrome?

Adding a word count would be great too.

I would like to have some font choices and color choices and size. A word counter would be nice too.

Number 1 request would be for COLOR choices!! I was using ScribeFire (can't use it with Internet Explorer) and something happened...wish I knew what!...and I haven't been able to get ScribeFire to work again (with Mozilla).

2. Font Size and style

3. Mimi Foster's idea of a "schedule blog posting time" would be fantastic for me! With my religeous observance, I don't work on Saturdays and Jewish holidays. Some of these holidays are back-to-back with a Saturday and are 2 days long. This would allow me to prepare posts in advance and schedule when they are published so I don't disappear for my readers for 3 days. It would also be helpful for people who are going away on vacation or celebrating family events that keep them busy for a few days!

I like what Alan May suggested, too, about text-wrapping around non-rectangular objects!

Thank you!!!

Yes,

Font Type

Font Size

Font Color

These would certainly help us create and customize our blog posts to be a reflection of us. Thanks for asking.
