    Do you mean you want a wysiwyg editor in bbpress such as TinyMCE? (Which include bold, italic, etc)

    bbPress 2.0 does not comes with a wysiwyg editor. bbPress 2.1 do have a TinyMCE editor, although it’s still under development.

    You can try this plugin Rich Text Editor For Comments or Basic Comment Quicktags



    using this tags in your forum signature

    Is there a way to let normal users post images on bbPress 2.1? Just discovered only admins can use <img> tags in replies.



    Yeah, I’d really enjoy an easy way for users to add images to their posts. Find a bit odd that there’s a parser for Youtube links and a lot of of other media types, but not normal images.

    Preferably it would would just as adding a Youtube link does, meaning – just add a link ending in .jpg, .png, .jpeg and .gif and it would show the image.
