Rich Text Editor (Please Respond to Poll)

Post by ProvoAggie » June 11th, 2013, 8:53 am

About a week ago I added a new editor to the message board that allows you to see rich text (bold, italic, underline) as you edit it. It also allows you to copy and paste formatted text directly into the site. So far I've gotten some mixed feedback on it and I want to get a better gauge everyones opinion of it. I am going to run this poll until sometime tonight so please vote for if you want to keep it or not. Tonight I will decide if it stays or goes based on the results of this poll.

Just wanted to say thanks again for all you do for the board. The format of this board is incredible and it's through things like this that it'll stay that way.

Based on this poll and some problems that have been pointed out, I've decided to remove the Rich Text Editor for now. It may return in the future...but not until it can be improved.

Damn you 7 people that didn't care...have an opinion one way or another! Oh wait...I was one of those... :oops:

Hopefully the development of a solid WYSIWYG editor for phpbb will be available in the near future.

I must now go have a private moment with my YouTube button that is back...

The editor that was used is the one that's being planned right now for the next release of phpBB...that's why they have BBCode support to begin with. Hopefully they can work out some of the small things.
