Why don't the makers of phpBB2 do this to the tags button???

Post by Iron-Monkey »

I am curious of one thing. How come the developers of phpBB2 not make it so that when the users click on the buttons for the html tags such as "B" "i" "Quote" "Img" it would pop up a window for the users to type in the text line instead of having the users to insert the tags in the middle of the tags or that they have to click on the "Close tags" link.

I think that making those tags to work with pop up javascript to simply insert the text in would make it a lot friendlier for those not very familiar with HTML tags.

I prefer it the way it is now, anyway this is a template issue and you can easily change it to what comes to your mind.

You do know that you can just select the tags (i.e. highlight them) Then you click the bold or italic tag button, and it will throw the opening and closing tags around it. This is just as easy as what you suggested, but simpler and easier to understand. 8)

You could also do the way that you suggested with templates (it would still show the tags in the post though). Good Luck :D
