Re: WYSIWYG message board?

Guys, chill down abit k? :) The implementation of a WYSIWYG editor has very little to do with HTML, CSS standards between the different browsers at all. The HTML tags used in WYSIWYG can be very standard and works across all browsers. The main issue would be that the script written for it may be inc...

Re: Anyone considered restructuring the IA of phpBB??

Chill guys, While I understand things can be changed via templates, I'm actually referring to the product, phpBB, itself; prior to any form of modification. If you would put template into the context then I'd say such as, subSilver; since it represents phpBB itself. It is a good thing to know that t...

Like I said, I thought it would have explained better. We must be using very different English. :P

Re: WYSIWYG message board?

Lastly, as for unchecked HTML; if users can't edit via HTML source view, they wouldn't be able to type in HTML would they? What I mean to say is HTML should never be accepted from a user to be displayed. Only plain text and BBCode. Oh okies. Yes, that would have to be so, which is why the stuff sto...

Re: WYSIWYG message board?

User agents are inherently unreliable, especially if you only test only occasionally - what if the user logs on elsewhere? What if the user's browser is lying? And by your method, guests would be forced to use the WYSIWYG method, as they would have no way of disabling it. Your last point is immater...

Anyone considered restructuring the IA of phpBB??

Hi guys, Just a thought. I noticed that some elements in phpBB isn't very noticeable. In fact, sometimes I actually need to take alook at each page to find what I'm looking for although it's there in the same place. For example, 1. Had a really hard time trying to find the Board Index link cos it's ...

Re: WYSIWYG message board?

IMHO, I think adding a wysiwyg textarea, such as http://www.dynarch.com/projects/htmlarea/," target="_blank will be good for a start since the general browser compliance issue has been taken care of mostly. It can be a simple one that provides abstraction to the current bbcodes that phpBB is current...

Re: UTF-8 native support?

Hi guys, Sorry if I sound totally dumb. I don't really know too well about characters encoding. However, wouldn't text stored as &#nnnn; form work? I'm just curious. I've used vBulletin before and had it's charset on ISO-8859-1. I noticed whenever I create a post using Chinese or Japanese characters...
