More and more boards are using wysiwyg editors, this behaviour will cost a lot of customers for phpbb3
Well, I hate to gripe... but I have seen a general "arrogant" attitude from quite a few people associated with the development of PHPBB. I've seen a lot of people ask for help only to be sarcastically referred to a "fill in the form" page or referred to the original author of a mod who may not see the question for a long time (if ever).
This is sad since I personally have seen several questions about a problem with a mod (modification, not moderator) that I myself ran into and KNEW THE ANSWER, but the OP was rudely redirected to ask in the "proper place" and the thread locked.
I could have (and would gladly have) helped out the person.
Oh well... anyway........ the reason I'm here right now is to ask you... if you have some time, please try out the editor setup as it is currently configured.
I've integrated the BBCode system into the statusbar of the editor. Existing BBCodes that are redundant (such as bold, italic, size, URL, etc...) are removed while non-redundant ones are available. Also, any admin created BBCodes automatically show up as new buttons and work as BBCodes always have.
Here's a shot of the editor:
What I'm interested in is... are the BBCode buttons in a "good" location? I put them in the status bar because the status bar is virtually wasted space anyway... who needs a word count or to know what elements are active?
Try it out if you get a chance... be very critical. Test it hard and tell me anything you think is wrong or that you don't like.
