Re: [Usability] Reducement of confirmation pages / Allow undo

I wonder whether we are making this too complicated, and I think agreement needs to be reached on just what the scope of this thing will be. An undo "stack" suggests the possibility of undoing multiple actions, several steps back. However, if all we're talking about is replacing "Are you sure" dial...

Re: Wysiwyg TinyMCE implementation

i'll create a wiki account tonight (if i have time) and add wysiwyg editor to the dev wiki... anyone else that has time please feel free.

im 100 percent confident that we can implement a new editor with many benefits while keeping the security tight.

Re: Attachment Management

What new innovations can be bring up to the front when ONLY 5 NON-TEAM MEMBERS EVER VISIT THIS FORUM? as others have argued in the past, i would love to see the entire area51 forum taken down and merged with the main support forum. Keeping the forums separate, does just that, keeps everyone separate.

Re: [RFC] Phpbb4 Extensions Repo organization

until some details about these discussions become public, i see little point in discussing the extensions themselves: we want to work *with* the dev-team, not to second-guess them. either lack of direction, lack of community involvement, or "secrecy" has hindered the development of phpbb in the pas...

Re: Wysiwyg TinyMCE implementation

but IMO the whole point of incorporating an wysiwyg is to move away from bbcode itself. bbcode is as much a security feature as it is a convenience feature, in phpBB. With phpBB3, the developers have taken the choice to not take HTML input and filter that, but take bbcode input and translate that i...

Re: What and Why phpBB 4 and forum?

i couldn't agree more with your reply code reader

The "thought Police" need to be accountable for their actions, or lack thereof. attempting to encourage community involvement, or even development while policing individuality and the community's voice doesn't work.

Re: Wysiwyg TinyMCE implementation

As already explained, TinyMCE is a HTML WYSIWYG editor, not BBCode. If phpBB reintroducted HTML into the system, like in phpBB2, there would be bloat. If phpBB wished to have a WYSIWYG editor in phpBB, they would have to build one themselves (unless there are BBCode WYSIWYG editors out there, which...
