Tutorial by Mark McLaren of McBuzz Communications shows how to set up WordPress so you can use the easy visual rich text editor to make new Posts and Pages and edit existing Posts and Pages. Without the correct “Use visual rich text editor” setting you will only see the “code” editing window in the Dashboard. The setting is under Users – Your Profile.
On a Mac, you must use the Firefox web browser instead of Safari. In Safari, you cannot see the visual rich text editing window even if you have the “use visual rich editor” box checked.
