Offline editor

(1/5) > >>

There are many limitations to online editor that is pre loaded in web page. A word like offline editor can be a first from SMF kind of addition in forums. It can have

1. All BB codes SMF supports (can release updates as and when we have more options).

2. Preview option.

3. Live preview pane as in Kuenena.

3. Better tables and list feature.

4. Create in WYSIWYG mod but post as normal code.

any additions are welcome.


It will help a lot while creating articles off line. We need not be browser dependent all the time. And helps advertising SMF as BB codes are more or less the same.  People using other script will come to know about SMF. Like Cynogenmod for Android, if it is made open source, we can demand them to leave SMF logo and link intact.

Or do what the rest of us do: write the base text offline and copy/paste it into the editor for formatting.

Just do it in Word (or OpenOffice.org), paste it in the WYSIWYG editor in SMF and everything gets the correct style. Basta, done.

Plus the Live Preview stuff can be done in WYSIWYG, the Preview function is integrated, and there's nothing really to change about the Tables feature as far as I know...

Much easier this way, I feel. Won't be much trouble to make one. Considering the popularity it will receive, SMF can definitely take advantage.

Does word / open office support BB codes ? If we type in red bold in those editors, does it comes as red coloured and bold in SMF editor ? Also embedded links like Source can be done with those ?

Oh, you are kidding, right? It's really NOT that simple to make one.

If you read the post as stated, you'd have the answer. SMF has a WYSIWYG mode. When you paste into WYSIWYG mode, it deals with that FOR YOU.
