You've spoken to all of our customers?

In 3.2.3 you can toggle it in the acp as you can on the front end.

The button is the same as the front-end one.

As much as I thought I would never say this, I have to agree with Aisha. The CKEditor in IPB is, for the majoirty of customers, a section of the board, allbeit the only section of the board, which is not "gold." In fact it is looking like it is in beta stages and thus is it good to use on a live community?

If I want bold text and underline with quotes its excellent. If I paste a template then the average user goes "What the hell happened?" I then go and edit the post and it spaces triple or crushes up into one

That's my two cents on the editor. I personally loved the blogging prior to the release and it seemed, and will be when it is "gold", an awesome edition.

I just think until Matt and co have got a fully unbugged editor we should have had the option to keep the old editor :/

I was generalizing. You know what I meant.

I hope you are posting the bugs you are encountering with specific steps to reproduce to our bug tracker. :) We have been running through every single editor bug reported and fixing them as they come in. Very few remain open at this time, so it would seem whatever issues you are facing have not yet been reported. We can't fix an issue if we're not aware of it.

That means [size=5]88.1%[/size] (3762) of our active members base [size=5]still use the STD[/size] and expect there to be buttons in simple mode aswell.




I just checked and 99.5% of our 37454 members are using the 3.1 std. editor. We have been using IPB since 2004.

At least it's good to see that the problem with non-English characters in the 3.2 std. mode is now solved. :-)

IMO your stats don't matter since all those users probably don't even know how to switch the editor or even that they can switch the editor lol

Since then haven't switched, they're probably happy with their editor. lol?

That's not what I'm looking for. I want all members to use the non-RT editor (by default).

I'm a bit late to this thread, but I just wanted to add my two cents that I'm also not very happy with CKEditor. I generally use "Standard" mode, and it's pretty much just a straight text editor without any features when you turn RTE mode off. This is definitely a step backwards. It doesn't even WORD WRAP in standard mode. Really!? I've also seen all sorts of weird, quirky behavior in 3.2.3, such as extra blank lines being inserted into posts, HTML tags being inserted into PMs (I've had this happen numerous times myself on my forum), and other oddities. The one bug I did file (the one with the HTML tags) was marked as "Cannot Reproduce", so now I have to spend my time (which I don't have a lot of) to try and come up with a recipe.

While I can appreciate the desire to use a presumably "tried and tested" third-party editor that would free IPS from having to worry about what is obviously a complex element of the software, I'm less than impressed thus far.

There's no official way to do this yet, but there is a simple modification linked to earlier in this thread.

The editor is going to get further updates in the next release of IP.Board. We are listening and taking all this feedback onboard.

That's great, but what about one or two ACP controls to:
1. Set the default mode (simple or advanced) for all users.
2. Disable advanced mode completely.

It's one function that should never be broken.

Well, it's clearly not broken.

But there can be issues when you perform certain sequences of actions. Or paste in text, or use a specific browser, etc.

We fix the bugs as they come in. When we released 3.2.3, there were 0 editor related bugs. All the staff use it daily and we report and fix any problems if we come across them.

As we keep repeating, if you spot any bugs, please post them to the tracker.
