[Declined] WYSIWYG editor mod?
« on: April 14, 2005, 12:24:01 AM »
Hello,

If I understand correctly, the SMF staff wont add WYSIWYG editor in their SMF version for security reason?

But is there a WYSIWYG editor mod that works fine with current SMF version?

I believe so.  I don't know if it is secure, but I know there was a mod available to do it.

I'm afirad I can't find it just now either :-[.

I've actually been messing with some code that might result in a secure wysiwyg editor.  The problem is it works great in Firefox, and it works... but not as well as I'd like in Internet Explorer.  And, of course, not at all in Opera.... and I haven't yet tested with Safari/KHTML.

Is it using BBC-codes..? I read somewhere quite a while back about HtmlArea being re-written to output BBC or VB code instead of HTML. Never heard of it since though, and now HtmlArea is no longer available... :P

Bloc... yes, it is.  Basically, I've worked through what will get outputted by Firefox and IE, and tried to make a function to convert that to bbc.  It doesn't work completely, yet, but one of the barriers I've found is that IE won't let me add a new element (e.g. <tt>) and then position the browser inside the element's bounds.  I can only do it by character...

I wished I could help out, but javascript is unknown territory(..) I have looked at some php functions to parse html tags into arrays, and then to bbc , and they mostly worked - but not always as intended. My limited knowledge of course...

It will just convert to supported bbc then?
