Solved Editing post with the use of HTML but in view forum

Post by Dyane on May 7th 2018, 7:12 pm

First topic message reminder :

Please please forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place.

I'm fairly new to forumotion. Been learning. But there is one thing when posting.
In the group I'm admin in We use headers for some posts.
When going to edit the header all you see is the html, you can also view it in the preview but can't edit there.
As you see in the screenshot below.


My question is..... Is there a way that we can see our work to edit it? It's very hard to edit
the text in html forum.
I know in other forums they do have the option to see html or view it to edit it.
Can anything be done to be able to edit it in view forum?

Thank you for your time.  My site is HERE

If html is allowed then I shouldn't have any problems. Well I don't in posting it.
It's just the editing. can't see.

Is there a way you can make the preview and editing place to?

You guys are fantastic. I’m truly an amazing on the quick responses here. I can’t wait to fully move over to this forum.
I really hope this can be fixed. I don’t know how else to
Do these headers. The owner is in her 70’s and so sweet and she is so use to being able to see the headers to edit them. Html would be way to hard for her.

Sadly that would take lots of recoding on our side but I will try and get this looked at as soon as I can,
Problem is we all work from home for free and none of us other then the Pro Admin work in the head office in France so we have a small window open to talk to the team and as you know.

Things are busy here and on all the other support forums we have and one member of staff doing all the tickets we make from our end.

Hi, @Dyane, it's me, timber Smile

When you say that you want to edit the header, are you saying you want to change the header image? Or are you referring to changing out the background tiles for the nested tables?

FYI, I have also created these nested tables here at Forumotion and when I am in WYSIWIG view, I only see the HTML, so I think that's normal for Forumotion. If you were to create your nested tables in BBCode then you would be able to see your images in WYSIWIG view. But I have to say that working with BBCode tables can be very tricky. I find it easier to make the nested tables in HTML and then edit the message text and images with BBCode.

If you use BBCode for the image (instead of using HTML), then you will see the image in WYSIWIG view.

Yes I know know and see but it's only part of what you see. The owner needs to see it like you can in the preview. The owner of the group can’t do headers like that.
I have put bbcodes for the images. and it just shows the one little block instead around the whole page like you see in preview.
We both tried the tables and don’t like it and is a pain. Lol
In the groups that we were in we were always able to see everything in html like you would see
When you post it. You can see how the whole header looks in preview as I posted in here.
Just wish that preview was able to edit. Was hoping with reading posts in here with making codes. That a code could be made to be able to edit the preview.
If not, I’m going to be doing all the work in the group then and that means it’s going to be real hard 
to move to forumotion and I wanna really move here.
Thanks thou for your help Timber

Those pics I posted is not in the admin panel.
It is regular a post, 
I copied and pasted my header. So I know what it already looks like.
But if I were to go edit I can’t see it as I see it posted. It’s all html. 
I can also see it when I click preview in my post. The only problem is you can’t edit the preview.

That is what APE was saying.  In posts on the forum, it shows the code, but in the AP, it show the image.

When you go to post you have preview and send I hit preview and I can see how it is but can’t edit the preview.

This is the first forum that you can’t edit in preview

You can edit it, but you just do not see how it looks when you preview or send it.

Lol I know you can edit it. But it’s hard to edit when it’s html.
If the preview was able to edit then it wouldn’t be a issue because we
would be able to see what we need to edit.

I feel I’m not explaining this right, but I don’t know how else to explain it.

I understand what you are saying.  We are saying that the editor is not really setup to see html code while in WYSIWYG mode.

No sadly there is no code out there that will do this as it has to be done on our server side and that will take to long to add in the system.

No it's not we have never had this work as far as I know it will only work in preview and you can't edit it on the preview.

I have tested it here and in 5 other forums and it will not work.

Sadly as much as I would like to say we can do some thing (sadly this is not the case ) we just don't have the tools in our editor sorry.
