Wikipedia to Get Visual Text Editor

Wikimedia Foundation is finally rolling out its visual ‘WYSIWYG‘ editor for all the Wikipedia users. Wikipedia is still using its markup code known as Wikitext. The new text editor is expected to launch from early July. The text editor has been launched in alpha version.

The organization has been working on a WYSIWYG editor for several years, and it said it has been the “most challenging software project the Wikimedia Foundation has ever worked on.

You can enable the VisualEditor in your preferences section under the editing tab. Wikimedia is inviting all alpha users to submit any bugs they find.
