How to select by default BBCode formatting radiobox

edited November 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi, im using BetterBBCode, HtmlFormatter and GuestPost. Now what i want to do is to have "Text" "Html" "BBCode" format radioboxes avaialable and to have "BBCode" selected by default. I've tried many tweaks but none of them worked, if i set "BBCode" to default formatter, then "Text" is gone, but i want to have three of them visible and "BBCode" selected by default for all users, even anonymous guest (thanks to GuestPost extension). I need some help please :)

    It's not perfect since vanilla won't use the user preference.

    I think my BBCodeParser extension (which is way better anyway ;) ) may be just what you need. It should make itself the default formatter, but still allow the others to show as options.

    Give it a go and let me know how you get on.

    P.S. don't forget to disable BetterBBCode before enabling BBCodeParser ;)

    Hi, I made a little extension for choosing the default radio button to be checked. Maybe it will help...

    Ok I have the same problem as the first poster. I need bbcode to be the default. I want the quotes to default to bbcode when copied in a post. I have downloaded and gone back and forth on the above addons and can not get them to default to bbcode for the quotation option

    I can see several "quoter" add-ons, which one did you use ?
