What is a WYSIWYG Editor?
WYSIWYG is an acronym that stands for “what you see is what you get.” In web design, this typically refers to a web building interface that allows users to edit their website using an interface that instantly shows the end result.
More About WYSIWYG Editors
WYSIWYG website builders enable designers to view the front end result while editing a web page. Using this type of tool, you can drag and drop certain elements and see a live preview of them, instead of building a website with code.
Most WYSIWYG software is intuitive and responsive, allowing you to see any edits you make without switching from the back end to the front end. This makes it easier to design content from scratch, even without web design experience. This software streamlines and simplifies the content creation process and prevents many errors before publishing. However, not every website element can be implemented with a drag-and-drop interface, so this software can have limited functionality.
