Where to find HTML and JS controlling the posting page

Post by AliasM2K »

Just want to know where I may find the HTML and JS concerned with the rendering of postings page. I have worked out a CKEditor based preview window that successfully renders the default phpBB bbcode. Just want to try intergrating it with a local installation of phpBB, and if does work, fork it at phpbb github repository. But now, I badly need to know where to find the HTML and JS concerned with the rendering of the posting page.

Regards, Karthik :)

Well, the template seems complicated and greek to me; so here I am sharing my idea mod_prev

The page greets you with a blank text area, which represents the source/bbcode view, where you can try out any of the default phpbb bbcodes, and hopefully the preview pane, which can be accessed by clicking the preview button should render the bbcode as it is to be displayed. :)

Any bbcode that the CKEditor based preview pane can't handle can be handled by a slight modification of the CKEditor bbcode plugin.

For WYSIWYG, please go to the RFC about the WYSWIYG editor.

Me and EXreaction have already started doing it. It's now paused. We're waiting for the BBCode engine refactoring. Only after that we'll get the WYSIWYG editor. I dunno if you want to work on it but if you do, contact me and EXreaction to prevent duplicate stuff or ppl working for nothin'.

Me and EXreaction are working on the SCE as decided that SCE is better than CKE. If you disagree, prove that we are wrong and you are right. At that time, we change to CKE.

If you have any specific questions or need guidance you can always inquire in IRC.

You may be expected to have basic skills to figure stuff out. We are unlikely to have the resources to teach, for example, non-programmers how to modify phpbb.

Lol! I am not a non-programmer of course... The thing is that I can't quite understand the templating system you are using :P
