Hopefully someone can get this going. It looks like it will be pretty simple for us to get a full editor on our front end posting. If someone works this out, let us know in the comments. Maybe make a full post on your site and link it here, or you can write a guest post on VoodooPress about it.

I didn’t really understand what I was doing however until much later. If you like WordPress, check out the article to see how far we’ve come!
