Forums: Index > Watercooler > Rich text editor- now 5 sec loads on info articles


The rich text editor (RTE) also known as WYSIWYG editor, had a serious problem with sophisticated Familypedia articles. For example, William I, King of England (1027-1087) formerly loaded into the editor in 1.5 minutes. Some modifications have been made to correct this so that the same article now loads in about 5 seconds. The huge delays using the new editor ought to be a thing of the past. If this is not the case, please let me know what articles have long load times. The downside of this technique is that for those that use preview in the old editor, you will not see the rendered infoboxes and so on.

I know most experienced editors are comfortable with wikitext, but I have taken the habit of leaving RTE on so that I can examine how our typical contributors will be viewing the article. ~ Phlox 16:44, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
