P2 WordPress theme lacks WYSIWYG or rich text editor on the front page, users with no knowledge of HTML will experience trouble posting pictures or formatting, quoting text, the problem is that if you implement an editor like TinyMCE it will conflict of the status update leading into a very slow infinite loop of more TinyMCE calls, at the same number of posts per page.
