- WoltLab Suite Core
A lot of issues I am experiencing using the software is related to the editor box.
When I was evaluating forum software including Woltlab and comparing it to other software, I noticed that IPS allows admins to configure the editor box exactly as they wish.
I know these things can be done with CSS, but as I don't have any CSS skills, it would be useful if there were a area in the admincp to customise the look and functionality of the editor box, including rearranging the buttons, deleting them, or adding others etc.
If Woltlabt won't allow admins to customise the editor in the admincp, would you consider simplifying the editor box instead as a default feature?
In this day and age, most people use Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp etc rather than forums. What all social media have in common is a simple to use editor box with a minimum of buttons on it. They tend to have prominent buttons for smilies, to upload a video, to upload a picture and a few others and that's it. On my previous vbulletin software, the out-of-the-box editor showed very few buttons, but gave a button to click to use more advanced functions if needed. Could that be considered for woltlab?
Basically, I believe the default editor box should have larger and colourful editor buttons which show a smilies button, add picture button, add video, bold, italic, underline, then all other functions should be hidden behind an advanced functions button, similar to how vb5 use.
On my forum, I think there would be little use for buttons such as code, inline code (whatever they do??) subscript, superscript and others and I would like to configure the editor box via the admincp, so that I can remove unwanted buttons and reorder those I do wish to keep.
PS: I've just realised that smilies on this site show without pressing a button. That's exactly the kind of thing I mean! Simple, easy to use.
Why isn't this a default feature? Is there a way I can do this, or do I need to CSS something?
