    The new wysiwyg editor for editing posts is very bad. If editing an old post I must spent more time for layout things than for updating the text. The editor also destroys the content of code blocks. For quoting I must handle the < p > .. pairs correct.

    Please insert an option ala: "Do you want to use the wysiwyg editor?". I will say NOOOOOOO.

    In the editor, there's a button to the upper-left that looks like a light switch. If you click on that, it will switch to BBcode view.

    That switch also seems to toggle the tag buttons. You can't use them in BBcode view. They turn grey and unclickable.

    Is there a way to have tag buttons in BBcode view?

    the old editor is ready (100% identical as before), tj has been working on it for a few days.
    the option should be visible in the next few hours so everyone who doesnt like the new rich editor will be able to use that one.
    personally i'd never switch back, I like the rich editing thing :)

    Thanks a lot, guys! I've really been meaning to ask this myself, since I kinda can't stand the new editing system :P

    Oh yes, it works!!
    • Thanx (test with a list)

    But one new wish: make the font in the edit window smaller.

    You mean the font size of the CKEditor WYSIWYG mode (16px)? The font size of the standard editor (13px) and CKEditor BBcode mode (11px) look fairly small already on my end.

    I still can't use formatting buttons in BB code view, is that how it's supposed to be?

    you need to switch from the User CP, not from the little button in the rich editor

    Thank you for this. It'll be a great help to those of us who are old and set in our ways. ^_^

    Then why didn't you try it when I asked for people to test it? -_-

    If the normal text has a font size of 12px, the text in the edit box has "small" (not a pixel size). This results in curios sizing effects if zooming is enabled (I do so).

    But it seems that something is changed since yesterday because I have the feeling that the font is now smaller (perhaps a css caching issue).

    And thanx for the raw editor.
