"Extendable, largely user-friendly WYSIWYG editor for the web"

What do you like best?

TinyMCE has a robust feature set but doesn't sacrifice user-friendliness. It is a software that I use regularly and am frequently training users on, and many do not have an IT background. But with the magic phrase, "It works a lot like your favorite word processor," I have them 90% of the way there.

What do you dislike?

As with any WYSIWYG editor, it is not always clear how your line breaks and content divisions will be handled behind the scenes. For those with HTML familiarity these nuances can be quickly cleared up, but it is a constant source of headaches for new users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look into the flexibility of enabling and disabling certain features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A WYSIWYG editor for web content managers, that can be expanded (or reduced) programmatically as desired. I have found that taking a more intentional approach to the enabled feature set (hiding certain options depending on use cases) moves this from good to great.

"Nice and simple text editor"

What do you like best?

TinyMCE is very easy to use, the icons used on the user interface explain to even our most computer ill-literate users what they do.

The ability to edit HTML alongside the text editor is extremely useful, allowing users to create content to their exact specifications.

What do you dislike?

It can be frustrating when trying to accomplish more complicated formatting tasks using the text editor alone, and not touching the HTML editor. The alignment (left, centre and right) options are rather confusing and don't always work as intended, requiring HTML edits to be made.

Recommendations to others considering the product

TinyMCE has its ups and downs, but as a text editor I would say it sits somewhere in the middle.

Its easy to use if your doing something simple, but quite a pain if your trying to pull off some fancy formatting.

So for simple text editing purposes, this is great. For more complex writing I would recommend something a bit more in-depth.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All users of our CMS (content management system) have the ability to easily format and style their content, without the need to learn and use HTML. Meaning our training times are greatly reduced, the quality of our content published on the web is of a higher standard, and we have a better user experience for our content contributors using the system.

"One of the best editors for the professional use"

What do you like best?

The editor is actively maintained and pretty solid in comparison to it's competitors. In general you get it for free, but you can buy support and very enhanced features from the developers. For a lot of issues like e.g. bootstrap support, you can find free and commercial plugins in the wild. Also writing own plugins is very easy, because of the simple but feature rich plugin API.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the editor has editing issues with special markup, but often the problem is more a general issue of such editors. Furthermore the default code view is not formatted and highlighted that makes it's complicated to edit the code. You can find plugins in the wild that fix such issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using the tinymce editor as the editor of choice for the beloved TYPO3 Enterprise Content Management System. Unfortunately TYPO3 still uses a very "own" and buggy editor that doesn't fits into our quality rules. So we realized an alternative editor implementation based on tinymce that still uses the link and image selection possibilities of TYPO3. Currently it has around 1000 users with a positive trend. You can find the extension in the TYPO3 extension repository.

"Probably the best WYSIWYG editor for the web"

What do you like best?

TinyMCE was the first WYIWYG editor I knew some years back when I was taking my first steps into PHP and web development.

The documentation was really good and I remember it was really easy to setup and to configure the functionality that I wanted to offer to my final users.

So in summary, it was a great tool, easy to setup and powerful.

What do you dislike?

Nothing at all, nowadays there are a lot of alternatives to TinyMCE, but in the end they are all similar.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing the users the ability to format the text entry is great. Specially for news or dynamic web content where we need to have the ability to make some formatting or adding some special content like images or tables.

"A pretty solid WYSIWYG."

What do you like best?

It's a very easy WYSIWYG to implement, even when it comes to adding custom buttons.

What do you dislike?

TinyMCE has stepped up their game and the only thing I really dislike is how clunky the codebase feels.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The only way to determine if TinyMCE will work for you is to try it out, along with the competitors (CKEditor, Quill, Redactor).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Content creation for a large publisher. We found that it provides a pretty solid interface for our editors to input HTML, as well as allowing us to implement our own custom buttons in a pretty easy fashion.

"TinyMCE is awesome"

What do you like best?

TinyMCE is easy for endusers to pick up and understand, as well as easy for our developers to integrate into our web based tools. It is lightweight, and powerful.

What do you dislike?

TinyMCE requires many different fees to acquire some features that are really kind of required. In essence, the pricing model could be simpler.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use TinyMCE to power internal tools requiring rich content editing from a myriad of devices. We have saved countless hours of development on our own alternative, and instead just integrate TinyMCE

I tried multiple wysiwyg editors, but TinyMCE is lightyears ahead of competition.
