Today marks the death of our WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) submission interface editor tool.
Primary challenge is that the greater majority of authors are not interested in learning how to use a basic TEXT editor and they want to be able to post their articles from a copy-and-paste from Microsoft Word.
We are sacrificing a “pretty” submission tool in order to reduce the barrier to entry for newbies, plus we have new software that will be able to reformat articles by any line length for the ezine publishers who still send in ASCII TEXT to their list.
As another bonus, articles in our database will no longer have the Microsoft bloated hidden control characters that hundreds of authors sent in without knowing it.
By Friday, the WYSIWYG editor references will be purged from our site.
