Same problem. It doesn't support custom BBCodes.

I don't know if there are so much boards who uses custom BBCodes ?
But would't make more sense to propose WYSIWYG for "standard BBCodes" which could be "switched on/off" in ACP and the guys who absolutely needs custom BBCodes develop extensions for this ?

I'm the one that gave most implementation code to phpBB's WYSIWYG editor project.

@DavidIQ . I can tell you. My implementation works with all BBCode I was able to put my hands on, both custom and included. The only BBCode I'm completely unable to cope with, which is also what lead me to enter in this state I am now, is the [quote] BBCode.

If someone is able to get me an algorithm that works correctly to process the [quote] BBCode, my code can probably be directly used without significant changes. Even if changes are required, they should be quite slim. And for those, I should get the time needed to make them work.

There is a valid argument that says it should be an extension then those who want it can have it and those who don't won't have it.

To put it in the core, as an option, will only serve to inflate the core.

So it would be also a valid argument that most of boards don't need hundreds of different permissions (read only, read and write and admin just for admins would be enough most of the boards) so be logic ...

The problem with WYSIWYG integration into the core is that as far as I can tell, there is no released WYSIWYG editor currently out there which could be easily extended in a way that it would support custom BBCodes (and when a WYSIWYG editor will be integrated into the core it must support all functionality that the core has).

I advice any of you to find an algorithm to parse the quote tags in what they are unique and hardcoded in phpBB's source code. Once you find that, it should become ready for proper testing as it should have loads of errors I forgot during development.

Out of interest, since how long are you aware of that?
Did you already put this card on the table before?
