I think that a WYSIWYG editor should be added to the final release of 3.2. either CKEDITOR or SCEDITOR.

That's not going to happen. This is because phpBB 3.2 is already at a Release Candidate stage, which means that no features are going to be added to it anymore and only bugs will be fixed before the final releases. New features will only be accepted into phpBB 3.3. There has been a lot of discussion in this topic, but ultimately somebody must have the time, motivation and ability to create this feature before it can be added. :)

I'm now having an internal discussion between CKE and SCE.
If I go with SCE, I risk lack of support and bugfixes like it has been for too long and its single main developer has been having a too busy life.
If I go with CKE, I'll have to make a couple plugins to make it decent for phpBB.
As a praise to CKE, it is now much lighter than it had been back in 2013 when this WYSIWYG editor project started.

Regardless of those, I'm now very busy and will be for the next 4 months or so. If someone wants to work with me on this just call me in. Otherwise, wait for my next available time and I'll work on it for real.

Suggesting to leave all of this to an extension instead of discussing it forever.

The main reason, anyway, it is to preserve the core code to be overloaded with something that IMO isn't a priority.

In any case, as elsewhere already stated, phpBB 3.2.x it is features frozen.
Want to compensate me for my interest? Don't ask me, just do it
I'm available for custom phpBB jobs, you can PM me the details.
New: my Live Board, Extensions and Tools for phpBB - Men at works.

Thanks for taking the time to work on this anyway. I'm sure we can all appreciate that everybody has busy schedules. :)
This is an often requested feature and I think it would be good to have it either available in the core or as an extension, so thanks.

Thanks.
But I still could REALLY use some good help with the [ quote] tag. I'm still lost in how can I make that work with the WYSIWYG editor...
Otherwise... Well.... I'll have to reduce functionality of that tag in the editor.

I'll do a reaudit onto CKE and SCE once more. CKE changed a lot to better and SCE changed too little. If SCE becomes near-abandoned again, as much as I like it and its main dev, I think I better get CKE on phpBB.

If you make an extension tor CKE on phpbb, can you release it? I am using SCE on phpbb right now.

Can the 3.3 dev version be downloaded anywhere? Is it on github? If I create a 3.3 dev board and figure out how to integrate a WYSIWYG, could I do a pull request or something and then it could possibly get added? I am using an extension for SCEditor and it isn't working out the best with bbcodes. I like SCEditor more than CKEditor so if I set up a dev board, I will try to integrate SCE. It is also responsive and it supports custom bbcodes.
