I sure hope that phpBB get's a proper WYSIWYG editor that is not like IP.B's half "assed" work. The IP.B's editor has loads of problems and even non custom BBCode is not properly rendered, sometimes. The only thing the IP.B's editor is flawless to show is italic, bold, underline and paragraphs. The rest has some flaw here or there.My idea for custom BBCodes is simple even though it may need improvement:
There's simple BBCode where what is supposed to be applied is a simple replacement of data to HTML (a checkbox may do that trick).
There's BBCode like a BBCode for youtube, where something different, like an image, is more appropriate than the direct translation using the replacement.
For those, there's an extra textarea that the administrator may use for the replacement in the WYSIWYG editor. It's supposed to be something easier to the browser or easier to the eyes.
If the checkbox is selected, that textarea is ignored.
If this textarea is empty (after stripping all blank characters
) and the checkbox is not selected then use no substitution in the WYSIWYG editor and leave the BBCode as-is (like the current editor).
Just to make it clear about those 2.
The checkbox is supposed to be used for markup & styling like the bold, underline, quote, code... (even though they are already in the core) All that can be directly replaced with the replacing equivalent.
The textarea is supposed to be used for youtube (youtube videos), iframes, divs with AJAX content, etc... and any other thing that uses external calls or uses flash or whatnot.
I think with this we would be ready for anything that this system may stumble upon.
