The tech team is moving the editor over to its own page. This change will not only unclutter the editor view, but will also allow the tech team to move towards upgrading security by putting the editor and other kinja.com pages behind HTTPS.
The core editing experience will largely remain the same. However, when you click ‘Compose’ in the user menu, the editor will now open on a stand-alone page at kinja.com/write. Similarly, when you choose to edit an existing post or draft, the editor will open with that existing content on a stand-alone page.
