How do we reinstate our old editor?

Post by Richardr on June 12th 2013, 12:07 pm

If that's not possible, how do we change the editor's background color, as our forum is dark and the new white editor is too bright and shocks everyone's eyes. We use phpBB2.


Thanks.

For dark themes. Try this one:
Code:
div.sceditor-toolbar {
background: #111 !important;
border-bottom: none !important;
}
.sceditor-container iframe {
background: #111 !important;
color: white !important
}
div.sceditor-container.ltr.wysiwygMode {
background: #111 !important;
}

Same problem here. I'm sorry, but new editor looks terrible on my forum and I don't want it. The old editor was perfect and all of my members got used to it through these years (and my forum is 5 years old, so I'm your long term user). We want it back, please. As some members are saying, at least give us an option to use old or new editor. Why erase the old one, it was great, I don't understand... why fix something that realy didn't need any fixing?Shit

color: white !important
}
div.sceditor-container.ltr.wysiwygMode {
background: #111 !important;
}




Thanks for this temporary solution, but I can't use it 'cause the letters also appear black, so it's black on black unless I change color every time.

Thanks for your suggestion. It removed most of the editor's white.

The problem now is that when the editor is in BBC mode, if I paste text into the editor, the text doesn't show; I need to switch editors in order to see it.

Currently doing it right now. Please wait.Smile
It would be easy via Javascript, but i'm finding ways to do it via CSS, but it will be hard since the editor style uses it's own color.

I have found that this code can be used to change the default color of the WYSIWYG editor. All you have to do is replace the word white with whatever color you desire.

Code:
$(document).ready(function() {
  $('div.sceditor-container.ltr.wysiwygMode iframe').ready(function() {
  $('div.sceditor-container.ltr.wysiwygMode iframe').contents().find('p').css('color','white');
  });
});

I will note that I am a novice at JavaScript and have not had the time to fully explore any possible repercussions of using this code. This was tested on phpBB2.

1. Go to ACP > Display > Pictures and Colors > Colors > CSS Stylesheet tab:
- Add this:
Code:
div.sceditor-toolbar {
background: #111 !important;
border-bottom: none !important;
}
.sceditor-container iframe {
background: #111 !important;
color: white !important
}
div.sceditor-container.ltr.wysiwygMode {
background: #111 !important;
}

2. For the text color, use the Javascript code given by DecusEtVeritas above.
- Go to ACP > Modules > HTML and Javascript > Javascript Management. Click the Create a new Javascript button, check the All page box then add the code.

why would FORUMOTION create something that would only disappoint its users?

at least give us the option to choose which among the editor (old & new) we would like to use.

hoping for a way to revert back to the old editor, coz the new one sucks!

I agree with those that say why fix something that isn't broken! We are five-year old forum wordnerds.omgforum.net and our members are used to the old editor, not to mention our forum is dark and this white thingy doesn't fit the aesthetics at all.

Please give forumotion's forums the chance to choose which editor they want to use. Thanks!


ETA: The way the smilies are show is really annoying as we do have bigger smilies than the regular ones.

Not to mention this editor is buggy as sin. It can't even handle tags properly. What a joke. I still can't believe forum motion is testing a beta on their client base, without giving their clients a choice. Sure fire way to shoot yourself in the foot.
