New Post Editor for the Forum

Post by Kenwood on Sun Jun 16, 2013 9:31 pm

In the past week or so the makers of this forum software have introduced a new post editor. I was on vacation so many of you have probably already noticed this.

Below is information on this change. Most important for you, I think, is the WYSIWYG feature. When it's on, it can cause issues with the look of your post, specifically when copying/pasting. With it off, you'll see the forum code (ex:[ quote]), which I think is preferable. Your choice, though. =)

Forumotion is pleased to announce the arrival of its new editor on your Forums

We have chosen a simple and complete messages editor that allows you to have a direct view of items to put on your forum pages (images, text, colors ...)

This is what it look's like:

This editor is composed of two modes:

  • WYSIWYG mode,
    Which displays the elements as they should appear on-line on your forum.
  • Source code mode,
    Which displays all the corresponding BBCode tags.

You can switch between thoses two modes via this button:

Here is a detailed list of the new Editor Features:


1. With the integration of the new editor, two options become obsolete in your admin panel and therefore were deleted:

  • Enable extended message editor
  • Enable WYSIWYG by default in messages

2. This new editor is still in beta. Therefore, there may still be some bugs. These will be corrected by gathering feedback from the community. (It should be noted that the change will not be in your admin panel.)
