Better WYSIWYG text editor?

  • I’m surprised that BBpress doesnt have a visual text editor. Are there any plans to create one or have support for integrating existing ones like tinymce/ckeditor ?

    I’m currently using bbPress Post Toolbar and find it kind of lacking.

    bbPress 2.0 (the plugin) has built-in support for tinymce. I guess bbPress 1 would not see any more feature additions.

    How do you enable tinymce. I am using bbpress 2.0.2 and don’t see this option anywhere.

    Also, users can’t enter anything that looks like xhtml tags. It gets deleted when submitted. How can I enable this as well?

    In wp-admin go to Settings->Forums and enable the Fancy Editor to enable using TinyMCE.

    Thanks for the reply Jarret, but there is no “Enable Fancy Editor” setting in Settings -> Forums.

    I’m using BBPress 2.0.2.

    What Section is it under on the settings page (Main Settings, Per Page, Per RSS Page,…)?

    acousticwebdesign, the “Fancy Editor” (which is using wordpress default editor) is only available in bbPress 2.1, which is still under development.

    You might want to take a look

    For bbPress 2.02 user, I recommend you to use Rich Text Editor For Comments which is using jWYSIWYG, although it’s may be a bit hard for beginners to configure it as it lack a setting page.

    You can style the editor if you hate the default styling, provided that you know some CSS stuff.

    Thanks Sniper Kitten, that’s very helpful.

    What about the backtick functionality I keep seeing in the forums? From what I can guess, this is supposed to let you embed html tags (or similar) in a forum reply between backticks and have those tags show up (encoded) in the reply. Is this only a feature of 2.1 as well? It’s not working right now on my forum. This is really the only functionality I need right now.

    I’m using the bbpress 2.1 and the inclusion of the fancy editor was really great. Thanks for your job!

    @sniper kitten, is there a quick way to add the smiley button to the editor?

    I was looking at the code but can’t see work it out. Some help would be appreciated.

    :)

    @jjman – you can use this plugin to add a button for emoticons to the editor.

    @jaredatch Thanks, I have tried that editor but it didn’t work in the environment I’m developing.

    A forum user needs a basic editor but to make a blogpost I need the regular wp-editor. The tinymce-advanced seems to override all wp-editors.

    I read somewhere in the forum that the develper of that plugin was planning to implement some sort of feature where you can have role-based variants but he’s not quite there yet.
