Important New Editor in your Administrative Panel

Post by Leviosa on December 9th 2013, 11:28 am

NEW EDITOR in your Administrative Panel
Dear members,

Forumotion is very happy to announce the arrival of the new editor in your administrative panel. :wouhou:
The editor has already proven its worth on the front. That's why, we have decided to unify them.

We took the opportunity to correct some annoying bugs on the front editor in the process.

Previously, your editor looked like


Now, both (Admin panel & Front) look like:



We hope you enjoy this new update

Please note:

Exclamation As with all new update, our technicians are still working on the deployment of this new editor. We apologize in advance for any
unexpected bugs.

Exclamation For Phpbb2 or punbb

Some of phpbb2 or punbb forums with customized template have a
shrunk editor:


To solve the problem please follow those recommendations:

If you:
- have a Phpbb2 or punbb forum
- You have customized
overall_header template

You must:
- either delete your custom overall_header template
- or change the following code

Code:
ticker_start({switch_ticker.HEIGHT}, {switch_ticker.SPACING},
{switch_ticker.SPEED}, '{switch_ticker.DIRECTION}',
{switch_ticker.STOP_TIME});

By this one:

Code:

$(document).ready(function() {
ticker_start({switch_ticker.HEIGHT},
 {switch_ticker.SPACING}, {switch_ticker.SPEED},
'{switch_ticker.DIRECTION}', {switch_ticker.STOP_TIME});
});

conan@10,

Did you choose source code mode ? It is best to write your code in source code mode and use WYSIWYG mode to have a quick look at your HTML page however, it may not display properly in such a small window unless you're using a responsive design.

So with the new editor for HTML page editing :

> Use Source code mode when writing
> Use WYSIWYG mode for quick previewing
> Use preview button for actual preview

Yes,

Otherwise you would not be able to see your source code. Inline styles and scripts will not display in mode WYSIWYG.

Can you give us the option to use the old one?
Its annoying as [Language], it does use it own codes... for example it does switch <font> with <span>
Not only that I don't like the fact it does use it own codes but also that it seems like <span> is not supported
Or it has a small bug with the color white because it end up with gray instead. fix it.

Even though the editor has been updated in the admin panel, there clearly still is the same issue as before with mobile phones not being able to properly render the editor for whatsoever reason.
I'm starting to wonder if the dev team even knows how many people use mobile phones to browse their forumotion forums nowadays, and it's plain annoying for me who is majorly bound to his phone.

Nevertheless, an update is an update. It was a small one, but still, thanks.

Hello again,

Sorry about the double post, I have pressed send in mistake (miss click) wouldn't double post if there was an edit button
---

Anyways , about the editor.
You mentioned that the previous editor looked like this



But to tell you the truth I never seen it before, I'm pretty sure there was no editor at all
There was only an empty box with no help tools (such as Bold, underline.. font color)
I loved it that way, editor just do much mess.
If you still think the way it is now better than before then please make it stop replacing your codes with different codes.

Best regards

Yes,

That was when you clicked the HTML bouton to edit in the Administration panel. It was available in areas of the AP such as : Widgets, HTML page, descriptions..

Your HTML is not broken, the editor simply converted it into a properly rendered page within the editor box for you.
You can click the button with a sheet of paper on it (nothing more, just a plain sheet of paper) which will change your editor mode to Source mode where only the plain source code is displayed.

And @Buttercup, thanks for your feedback; I know that this is not the topic to discuss such matter, but I thought I'd go ahead and state my opinion when we're already here.

Thank you for the update, it looks very nice, however, I do have an issue with it - I try pressing the button to switch to source code, but it won't work and remains constantly in WYSIWYG. This happens in all standard browsers (IE, firefox, mozilla). Because of this, I am unable to edit my code (even tried removing one of the codes through Chrome's Elements tool, but nothing changed once I tried saving).

This new update is also reformatting actual forum posts on my site. If you try to use BBC in a post and actually space it all out, etc, when you go to save or edit, it smashes it all together into one giant block of text and completely ignores your original formatting. I can't expect all of my forum members to jump through another hoop just to get their posts to work correctly Sad. Post formatting is essential for using a forum for any kind of gaming, and this mode being default makes it unusable for those in the same sorts of community as mine. I hope that this becomes at least optional.

I'm not sure on my opinion, yes its an update, and things have gone belly up. My only issue that I have come across is the annoying Quote bug, where your typing in the Quote and not outside it. But other than that, its OK, it will probably grow on me in time.. but mine is only a small new forum, so I guess things will be different for larger forums. One thing I would like is the Announcements work as a block instead of a single line> Other than that keep the updates coming.

um, I haven't customized any of the templates. Only the Devs shrunk it. When clicking on the More (...) button, all the buttons move to the third line.

And I looked at mine anyway just in case I misinterpreted what you written, Buttercup, and found the code identical to the solution you presented.
$(document).ready(function() {
ticker_start({switch_ticker.HEIGHT}, {switch_ticker.SPACING}, {switch_ticker.SPEED}, '{switch_ticker.DIRECTION}' {switch_ticker.STOP_TIME});
});

What should I do then? Nothing has worked quite well for me since the New Editor debut in June.Laughing

Hello,

If you have not customized any templates, the code has been automatically set up.
So, you have to do nothing. Very HappyVery Happy

Following on from my earlier mention that forum posts are being automatically reformatted too, I think it might actually be a bug to do with the list tags.

I notice it is reformatting any text within a post that is within list tags, but which does not have a bullet point preceding the text.

For example, previously you could use a list tag without bullet points to indent a section of text. Now, an indented section has all BBCode automatically stripped from it in the forum post. Examples below:

This is the text as I wrote it:


This is the text if you hit preview, or try to go back to edit a post.


This is how it then appears when you hit send.

The BBCode list tag converts the input into <ul> or <ol> tags (depends on the optional =1 that may follow after the list opening tag, like [ list=1 ], which will result in an <ol> tag), and those tags usually perform that kind of formatting (HTML actually ignores line breaks and only inserts them after certain elements like <li> (for list) which are the HTML-equivalent of [ * ]). I hope I could explain the outcome to you.

Yeah, but it looks awful anyway. So I guess I'll wait till the Devs fix it again. Was fine before.
