Extendend Text Formatting & Html Formatter Addon help

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
When "slash me" commands are used in Html formatting the /me reverts back to /me.

Also is there anyway to make the Html formatter addon default to having the comments and threads default to formatting is Html rather than text?

    that, sir, is one confusing sentence fragment.

    The default formatting option is Text, how would I go about defaulting it to Html.

    Sorry about the quality of that post, my girlfriend keeps shooting me with a dart gun.

    once you post a comment in Html, Html should stay selected until you post a comment in Text.

    It's these bright orange darts that stick to glass surfaces.

    Anyways, I was getting at making it default for a user's first post, but the html formatting seems to revert "slash me" to /me **** rather than Username Dances, or whatever it might be.

    yeah, that part is not built into the HTML Formatter. You can easily add it if you are not afraid of a little PHP.

    on my forum, i've got a super customized html formatter that processes links and does all kinds of crazy stuff. it's just easier that way.

    To be honest, I've never really gotten to learn php, it's not as out there as CSS is, If I go looking for something on how to learn it, it's all so bland and has no feel to the writing so in the end you sitting there half a sleep trying to remember what you read a page ago.

    it's just a tool (but a powerful one.) if you really need it, you'll learn it somehow. there are some enjoyable php books out there, or at least there were, but it's been a few years since i needed one so i can't recommend anything current :)

    anyway i'll post here tomorrow with instructions on how process /mes if you want.

    If it's not bother that would be great :)
