Bring back the raw edit box

Recommended Posts

Svip

For almost two decades, GTA(3)Forums.com had a raw BBCode edit box, and it worked.  Now it has a useless too-fancy edit box, that does not work.

 

For a period, it was possible to switch between a useless edit box and a useful one, but now it's limited to the useless one, can we bring the option back?

 

For instance, if I quote someone, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to split the quote.  Searching for the subject with regards to IPS or the now completely stupid name, Invision Community (the f*ck does that mean?), yields nothing, except a post highlighting this new editor as making it 'easy' to split quote boxes (it's not).

 

Please, I just want to be able to actually make useful replies to the D&D forum, which require inline posting.

I think they removed the old, raw/inline editor in the IPB 4 versions. The switch was possible back on IPB 3.x.x versions. As much I've to admit, this new editor is annoying as you can't edit or view the code source, unless you manually tyre it as out. I think it was a stupid move from the Invision team as other Forum Softwares like phpBB, MyBB, SMF & vB still have it.

Unfortunately this is not possible, the IPS4 editor is proprietary aswell, it's ckEditor. It's possible to customise its installation and add plugins, which is something that could be brought up, but I don't think raw BBCode posting will ever come back as it's simply not supported anymore and it's not easy to reimplement as, as I said, the editor is now totally different and proprietary.

Does that mean tables are not coming back as well? Because most of the table codes were raw ones.

Are post previews coming back at least? Or even that is impossible?

 

If we can't have rich text editing anymore at least we should have a way of knowing what works and what doesn't without actually posting.
