WYSIWYG by Default
« on: July 03, 2011, 12:40:40 AM »
I want to set my SMF 2.0 forum to have the WYSIWYG post editor as the default for new users. I already enabled it in the admin panel, and on my own profile settings. I have searched through the site for a while but have not found anything yet.

Admin -> Themes and Layout -> Member Options -> Change current options for all members using this theme  -> Show WYSIWYG editor on post page by default.

Thanks for the quick reply. I am not adjusted to the change from MyBB to SMF yet :P

I don't think that changes the option for those that register after you have set it. The default is to be off. But you can just run that setting every once in a while to change all. You'd have to modify the registration code to add such a default. I'm not sure what it would be ATM.

that will change it for existing users Ich, it does not change it for new members though. there is an option to change it for new users though.

That would be -

Admin -> Themes and Layout -> Member Options -> Configure guest and new user options for this theme  -> Show WYSIWYG editor on post page by default.

You'd have to do both to affect all new and old members, and guests.

Sorry Illori you confuzzled me there a little. I did say the change would only work on users who were currently registered. Your last sentence says there "is" an option for new users? I'm not aware of this option. Where is it?

This path seems to be outdated for SMF 2.0.15.

Where can the admin globally set the "Show WYSIWYG editor on post page by default." for all members with one click - instead of going into every single profile?

But you really do not want to do that, trust me. Not a good idea.

the WYSIWYG editor does not work that well, you will cause more headaches then it is worth if you do enable it.

also that path has not changed.

Ok, so there's just one level missing in that quote::

This.

Just don't do it, you'll regret it if you do.

Maybe, I'm dumb as F*@k, but I still can't find this path correct.

"Member Options" does not show up (not in the German Version).
And after clikcing on the theme Name, there's nop check box that even shows WYSIWYG...

I'm lost.... Sorry...

And for the warnings: what's so crappy about it?

Until now, I had no real troublesome issues... :-)

The 2.0 wysiwyg was built from scratch and, as such has a number of issues when used in the real world.  It is seriously not recommended to use it...   the issues are not severe enough for us to rewrite 2.0 to remove it— but we did just that in 2.1
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Try appending ?action=admin;area=theme;sa=reset onto your forum URL, after the index.php, so you'll get something like:

myforum.com/index.php?action=admin;area=theme;sa=reset

This will take you straight to the Member Options page.
