The font size in our sites reply boxes are too small for the users to see. The correct size shows up once the reply is posted. We need the same size font in each area.
Please help our old EYES!

Would like the option to revert back to the old toolbar!

We had a block of Smiles on the right side of our screens that our users utilized in nearly every post. Poof it's gone. We want it back!
(I changed the setting in the CSS and at least they are large enough to actually see now when you click the happy face on the toolbar)

I agree that the simpler toolbar was easier to use.

just wondering... why change what was working just fine before it was filla-gotched with?

I don't like it. We at Serenity River Pack have a dark blue background and this white looks absolutely horrid. Not to mention the formatting buttons from the normal post reply page have vanished (at least for chrome, I haven't checked other browsers)

Yeah only people on Desktop Computers can post now...no gaming consoles "including the super powerful PS3 and Wii U" or mobile devices can even be used to post any messages anymore, please fix this otherwise I think not only those of us who have our website hosted at Forumotion, but Forumotion themselves may be in danger of losing most of their active members.

I get that most people don't like it... but I am quite fond of the new editor. My only issue with it is the mobile devices thing. I have a few upset members because of that. I don't know about all but I know some of my mobile members can still post, they just can't see the buttons for actually editing. But right now it is only in beta so hopefully it will be updated in time.

All of the members including me absolutely hate it. We have a dark background so first of all it looks very bad, and secondly it's not WYSIWYG due to the color differences.

The WYSIWYG mode is also annoying since it makes things more complicated instead of simplifying them.

Please just give us an option of whether to use to old one or the new one. That way everybody's happy, and no one loses out.

To put it simply, I think you need to reassess any and all future updates. This "new editor" update, has got to be the worst "update" I've seen you implement. Not only is it unwanted, but you're alienating  your user base.

Okay, so I've had a few hours with this edit and it is now growing on me. I can see that my non-tech-savvy members will find this easier to use.

I was able to fix the resized smilies by adding this CSS,

.sceditor-emoticons { max-width: 300px; max-height: 400px; overflow:scroll; }
.sceditor-emoticons img.smiley { width: auto; height: auto; }

For those who missed my post, I was able to post using the new editor on the Nintendo 3DS by turning on the BBCode/source view (last icon in the toolbar).

I think some people are being a little too hard on the text editor. I think it was a nice update by Forumotion.

We all hate it. Sorry. All our smiles are so small none of us can see it. Why mess with things that work. I know that I will now lose supportive members because of this as it has taken me years to show them the old version.  For us who really do not undertsand all the .sceditor-emoticons { max-width: 300px; max-height: 400px; overflow:scroll; }
.sceditor-emoticons img.smiley { width: auto; height: auto; }
etc it is now a waste of 4 years.

If you understand all the jargon to fix things etc then great. Sadly many of my rescue members are like me not computer literate. All this bbCodes etc means nothing to me. Would have been nice to maybe been asked opinions. I have had over 437 emails today from members panicing about teh 'forums been hacked' etc. Stressful enough running a dog rescue without having to sit telling them all it is the hosts messing about

the problem is as you can see, MOST DON'T WANT IT! most of us are already happy with what we have, we don't NEED it and we are asking the people here to give us a choice.

You should give the new text editor an option to make it dark themed, for dark forums.

I don't mind the functionality of it. What it does need to have is a simple way (that involves no coding) to have it match the colour scheme of the rest of the forum. Black on white has always been the worst set up for reading text on a screen.

One problem with the new editor is if you edit a post while WYSIWYG is enabled, extra line breaks are inserted after 'quote' blocks. So if you edit a post that had 'quote' stuff, don't change anything, and hit 'Send' to save it, the post will have extra lines under each 'quote' area.

This was the way it was with the old editor, too. The quote and code buttons added a line after them.

No, I mean if you edit your post after saving. So if you were to edit the post you made above and hit 'send,' it will add more space after the quote boxes.

Its horrible, Especially on RPG sites where you wish to copy a little of anothers text and then paste it on your own reply. it keeps the colour of the other reply and the background of it as well! It is really annoying. especially when you use tables and stuff!!!!

It happens here.

Watch this video of it in action (when writing this post). You just have to keep hitting the Preview button to trigger it.

Editor Bug.mp4 (900k)

I have BBCode off in the video, but it happens when WYSIWYG is on too.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Obviously there is still a lot more room for improvement at this moment in time. Hopefully with all this feedback, the team will be able to take on board the comments made and make the necessary changes.
