Most stable/cross-device theme, editor & emoticons combo
I have an internal forum for a charity running Vanilla 2.1b (at the moment : we only recently moved from Vanilla 1). Because it is an internal forum, we don't really care what it looks like.
What is proving a problem is coming up with a theme / wysiwyg / emoticon solution that works reliably across multiple browsers and devices. I've got small numbers of users, but it sometimes seems like they are deliberately trying to access using the widest available bunch of technologies.
At the moment I've got Bitter Sweet 1.1 theme (with slightly customised css), Wysihtml5, and Emotify enabled. I have people complaining loudly that they can't see the editor toolbar, OR they can't see/use the emoticons, and that new/unread posts are not always highlighted for them (the css customisation was to make new/unread posts more easy to spot: I switched to Bitter Sweet from Baseline because less people had the 'can't spot new posts' complaint when I did that. ).
I've been unable to find a combination of plugins/themes that makes these complaints go away. What would you use?
