This discussion is related to the Articles addon.

    I haven't tested the BBCode format with articles thoroughly yet, but can look into it. Does anyone else have experience with using this format with the Articles app?

    By the way, are you using the NBBC plugin along with the BBCode format or just the standard Vanilla BBCode format?

  • I'm using NBBC plugin.
    But just I tried change all the system to use CKEditor with wysiwyg and have similar problem. I guess maybe the plugin has some incompatibility with my vanilla 2.2.1 version?

    Would you post some example BBCode text that doesn't work in articles, but does work in article comments and Vanilla discussions/comments? I'll test it out.

  • @Shadowdare , I guess in part I do not test with a good text before and also got a cache problem.

    Today I decide to try the CKEditor again with wysiwyg and most of the things are fine. With the bbcode most are fine to.
    The text I tryed yesterday I have big titles and many numbered lists.
    The lists are the one not showing for now with both wysiwyg and bbcode.

    But I look into the HTML code generated and the HTML tags for lists are there. It is just a CSS problem that I can solve my self.
