Introduction to your Visual Editor

The area where you write your post is by default in Visual Editing mode which uses WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) option for formatting.

It works similar to any word processing software.

Write your post, highlight any text you want to format and then click the appropriate icon in the toolbar to add formatting such as bold, italics, number list.

A small tool tip appears describing the icon and its purpose when you hover your mouse over an icon in the visual editor.

There are two rows of icons contained on the visual editor.

The visual editor displays a single row of icons when it is initially opened and you use the Toolbar Toggle icon to view the advanced formatting options contained in the second row. The advanced formatting options include font color, custom characters, undo, redo.
