I’m one of those people that has the visual editor disabled in WordPress. I write everything in Markdown and I want the editor to make very few decisions about what HTML to generate. The downside of this is that the code editor is set in Consolas — not exactly great for writing long posts. To fix that, I made a new file in mu-plugins called pretty-code-editor.php. It’s just two CSS rules, but now writing in the code editor is much easier.

\#wp_mce_fullscreen, .wp-editor-area {
font-family: "Baskerville", Georgia, Serif !important;
font-size: 16px;

<?php }

Follow along with the Gist on Github because I’ve got some ideas that would make this even better.
