bbcode editor backported from CLI experimental site

#1 Post by Andrew Lee » Sun Oct 25, 2020 6:47 pm

I have backported the bbcode editor from the CLI experimental site.

The changes are basically:

1) new set of toolbar icons
2) a couple of new tags ('section', 'spoiler' etc.)

IMHO, it would look better with a line break before all of the text-only buttons -- so you'd have all the regular buttons (up to the text size drop-down) in one line, and the text-only buttons on another...

Plus, related buttons should be kept close to each other. My suggested ordering:

{indent}{s}{pre}{medium}{spoiler}|{youtube}{imgw}{imgh}{imgwh}|{table}{td}{th}{tdw}{thw}{tr}

Thanks for that. Can we point to a page that talks about what they are? I can draft something up if needed. Just interested in making new users comfortable.

What is "Insert App Link"?
What is "Section"?

Instead of linking to another entry as

Code: Select all

[url=https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=123]Link Text[/url]
you enter

Code: Select all

[app=123]Link Text[/app]
What is "Section"?
Gives the text inside a different background for better visibility, like here.
"Is there a Windows-included tool for this task?"
"I only want open-source tools"
"I want a tool that is still actively developed"
"So many to choose from!"
and many more!

I suspect you are referring to the forum editor, which is totally different from the database editor.

The forum editor is built-in to phpBB. Unfortunately, I don't think there is any easy way to change the toolbar layout, but I will check again.

The post pertains to the database editor, of which some features were backported from the CLI site.
