Which one the available editors is the best one for a new forum based on Vanilla 2.0.x?

I want to choose a Wysiwyg/Text-based editor that will be most compatible with the next version (2.1.x).

Buttonbar

Buttonbar+MarkDown

Buttonbar+BBcode

Buttonbar+xxx

CLEditor

TinyMC

VanillaMCE

TinyMCEFour

WysiHtml5

elRTE

Anything else???

    I would use BBCode (I hate the way you have to create new lines in MarkDown! That's ridiculously unintuitive) and it would be nice to have that WYSIWYG editor: http://www.wysibb.com

    Buttonbar isn't Wysiwyg, however given it is simpler it is less complex likely to be conflicting, and also it is supported the core team.

    I think probably it is a tossup between WysiHtml5/CLEditor.

    However WysiHtml5 isn't officially supported by 2.0, it would be an option for 2.1.

    2.1 come with a version of CLEditor

    grep is your friend.

    be that as it may BBCode is not standardized. html and markdown are.

    Button Bar + Markdown are our staff favorites.

    BBCode is generally loathed. We support it for legacy folks who lose their minds if they can't have it.

    I also vote for Buttonbar + Markdown.

    Sure, it is less popular than BBCode. It is a lot easier to write Markdown imo.

    In Dashboard Plugins, CLEditor says: "Deprecated in favor of Advanced Editor; this will be its final release." What is "Advanced Editor"???

    It is basically the successor to the ButtonBar, soon to be released. It is what is used on this forum.
