is it even possible to lie about an opinion?No, absolutely not! Opinions are simply divine: the perfect expression of an individual persona, totally immaculate and free from accountability!
Finally, if you'd like to debate whether ContentBlocks is "incomprehensible" or not, I'd like to invite you to try it, first. You've not as much as signed up, let alone installed ContentBlocks or any other extras as far as I can tell. Yet here you are, posting unfounded claims about it with zero argumentation or verifiable experience to back it up.

Well then if you can't find one, code it yourself! When I was into WordPress if I couldn't find a plugin, I would program it.

It's of course up to you how you call it, but we prefer calling it user friendly and minimalistic, rather than dumbed-downQuote from: BobRay at Jun 14, 2017, 09:49 PM
I almost never act as a moderator here, but let me gently suggest that "dumbed-down" is not a good adjective to use here in describing another forum member's product (and point out that the OP did not use it that way).Yes, I actually wasn't referring to Redactor at all. I was referring more to TinyMCE, which in version 4 has removed a bunch of the advanced features that were present in version 3, for no good reason that I can figure out.
Content blocks is way too complicated for my purposes. When I said I need "templates", I'm talking about very small snippets of things, like a placeholder for a video with a title on top and caption on the bottom, wrapped in a div that gets floated right so content will wrap around it. I don't need big "blocks" for content. ContentBlocks makes sense for the type of one-page websites you see these days, but that is not the type of design I typically use for my clients.
If the OP is not already established in his project, then for sure ContentBlocks (or yet another Extra) might work for him.
@RainbowTiger: I think PhpStorm (actually WebStorm), has a fairly powerful RTE, though I've never bothered to get it working, because the regular editor has some nice built-in HTML tools like automatically adding closing tags, indentation, and HTML error checking. You might find its "live templates" very useful. They're kind of a weird cross between templates and macros. They pull in a template you create (via hot keys) and allow you to jump through the editable parts of it with the Tab key. I assume that Sublime Text is also a good option, although I've spent very little time with it.I used Sublime for quite a while, then switched to Atom and haven't looked back. It's perfect for my purposes. BUT, the RTE I need is not for me, but for my more advanced clients who are capable of doing some good editing on their website but aren't code warriors, so they need to edit everything in WYSIWYG inside MODX.
