Worked. Publish it as default editor and switcher appear. (why i must write something more?!)
Ease of use
It's easy if u know how to make it work.
You must publish it as default editor for user!
Not intuitive action, for me.
I used this to: corporate site then i need more accurate code (why i must write something more?!)

Great extension

Ease of use
very easy
I used this to: my website
I needed to switch between editors since I work with all sorts of contents and so this extension defiantly makes my work much easier. Very much recommended by me :)

5 Stars All The Way!

What an amazing plugin :) Should be part of the Joomla Core! Removing the need to go to the global config every time I want to change editors has saved me hours of time.

Thanks again!

A welcome addition!

Editor Switcher is a hidden gem that I did not know existed before. I watched the video for easy set-up and it works great on our Joomla 3.2 site. I will be adding Editor Switcher to all of our sites.

no updates?

unfortunately not working for me on Jooomla 3.2.1
Owner's reply: Does not work in a clean Joomla?
My Joomla3.2.1 and 3.2.2RC is OK.

Please check
* Default editor is "Editor Switcher"
* Configure "Editor Switcher"

I don't know how.....

.... often i've visited the JED in the past, but today i was searching for an editor switcher to handle my migration from Joomla 1.5 to 3.2

So i just selected the first search result and add this to my localhost installation.

It works like it should and i think, i am going to love that little nice plug, for cleaning up the mess.... way back to some Joomla 1.0 articles.

This is a fabulous hidden gem. Works as soon as you install and change your editor!

Works like a charm!

Does what it say:

- easy editor switching

- default editor selectable

Hint: You have to set Editor Switcher as default editor
I often work with HTML code in my articles, so it's nesessary to me to see, how my articles will look like. But going to control panel to change editor each time when I want to see page code or complite page is wasting of time. With this extension I can switch view of my articles directly during editing, so now I'm using it all time and reccomend it for all.

J4 Only! What can you do with this? You can post articles to your Joomla using a local blog editor. Keywords and tags are linked. (If you add a keyword, the tag will also be registered. However, deleting a keyword will not delete the tag.) New categories will be registered at the same time as the article is submitted. *These are the features I checked in Open Live Writer. There are many proble...
