I'm sorry, but I don't understand the question. Can you give examples?

I think you should go with whatever is the simplest and has the best chance of being ready in time for the release you target.

Are you OK if I don't do this and give more time for discussion? I guess it is not something that important to have and we may have better suggestions from phpBB's users.
I'll keep this working for inline BBCode (b,i,u,etc...) but it won't work for block-level BBCode.

@Pony99CA I'll get you one later. I'm a bit too tired.

Are there any plans to use a WYSIWYG editor in phpBB 3.2?

There are plans to include WYSIWYG editors in future versions of phpBB?

I ask because many forum scripts like IPB, UBB, SMF, MyBB, several of them already have this built years WYSIWIG editors.

If there is no plan, someone would know the reason of the phpBB development team does not work in this direction?

If there are no plans to include such functionality, phpBB would be going against the tide of all other forum scripts and even other types, such as CMS Wordpress and Joomla, for example?

Thank you ;-)

The fact of the matter is that it was planned for 3.2 but the person that was working on it was unable to finish it in time for release and it's still unfinished. There is obviously a plan to include it in a future version but proper implementation has been a difficult task. All of those forum scripts you've mentioned have a difficult task of supporting custom BBCodes and some don't even bother with it. This is the most challenging part and why it's not been finished.

There is a WYSIWYG editor Extension https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2322921 who works very well (even in phpbb 3.2) would it be so difficult to do the same thing just as a standard feature ?
