I second, err, third this!
I do not see why this should/could not be an option in the core (minus all the work that does go into adding something like this). As we get older we tend to be more resistant towards change. However, even an old lass like me thinks that this would be a great option. I have run several gaming communities as well as support communities (professional and private) and having a wysiwyg editor is something most gamers do prefer. Most of the site owners or my bosses (depending on where i worked) almost always chose VB just because of the wysiwyg editor. My company and community still uses phpbb3 because I believe in this project.

Leaving the option in the ACP would be a good balance and solution for those site owners that do and do not want the editor.

Just my 2¢ worth,

4- Buttons actually work properly when in source code mode, not just in the WYSIWYG mode for all BBCode (includes custom BBCode).

  1. CTRL+Z doesn't work. An editor eliminating the undo feature is a hindrance to me. Of course: also in "view source" mode.
  2. Doesn't use accelerator keys, but instead has CTRL+B for bold, CTRL+I for italics and CTRL+U for underline. Fine (although it's prone to interfere with internet browser shortcuts). What's the shortcut for a URL? I've fallen so many times to press CTRL+W and was less amused when my tab was closing instead. CTRL+L also won't work, as that focuses my browser address edit line. The hints of the buttons don't list any shortcuts.
  3. Inserting text also copies formattings, which has both advantages and disadvantages.
  4. I'm unable to create nested lists.
  5. For sorted lists I only have ordinals - no letters, roman numbers, etc...
  6. Colors won't let me choose a custom value.
No, this editor is as horrible as all others I've met within years.
Most things apply to this one, too.

I'm one of those who can handle "blank" editors and BBCodes and I fail to understand why something such important as "undo" or keyboard only input is always disregarded when advertizing rich editors. Giving users the option would be a benefit for everybody: I can continue to not use it, others can enjoy their Frontpage-like hype return. ;)

I HATE those things with a passion!
Me to. But in fact the users want that feature. And as already said: We are in 2013...

I think it is useful idea but is "a must have" an option that allows USERS to choose from WYSIWYG and text editor or one to choose between WYSIWYG and old bbcode style.

Anyway I had a similar Idea here you can see it:
viewtopic.php?f=436&t=2210136

But I think yours is better than mine, so I'll follow you...

+1 for me

Two questions:
1) Using a WYSIWYG editor will be possible to use the tabulation inside the editor to indent or put in a columns text in similar way as a table?
2) Will be possible to use tables with ease too?

In my web site I inserted some bbcodes to table, rows and cells but it is not easy to use and it is a big limitation and problems for me and above all for users.
Using table might be an interesting thing to create lists with more column or data relations ecc...

It can be done in a much easier way. I don't know how much easier because that depends on the person but I'm preparing it such that you can do very interesting customization with the editor.

For now I'm just waiting for the owner to give me some feedback on a last thing I'm adding to the editor to make it work such that it can feel responsive and smooth enough for an alpha version. The target milestone, for now, is phpBB3.2

Why starting from scratches if it is possible to find online something almost ready?
I searched online other WYSIWYG editor under GPL licence. I have found some interesting piece of code eventually to evaluate for implementation. The problem maybe is that it have to be scalable/ customizable as well as phpbb codes are now, so every admin can improve his own buttons and custom "toolbars" with icons with a simple code as "backend" (I am not sure if backend is the correct word in this case).

I post some links:

I can't stand wysiwyg editors but I think they are planning on adding one, I just hope I can disable it on my own board.
