New Guy Looking For Answers
I have been eye-balling Vanilla for awhile. I love the layout of it, with a category list and all the topics listed. It eliminates the need for a breadcrumb. I believe it to be ahead of the curve in that manner, but it seems alot of traditional forum user's don't like it. I think given time, they will come around...
My biggest hurdle to make the switch to Vanilla is the editor. There is yet a decent editor out there that I've seen for a forum/bbs, except for the one here using markdown(WYSISWM), but it doesn't seem to come with the default installation and I cannot locate the plugin for it. When will it become accessible?
Also, in order for me to make the switch from xenForo to vanilla, I will need a few things(that I can't already find).
- I need to be able to "float" in my posts, will I be able to add this?
- I need to be able to embed YouTube videos in posts, and others if possible. I can't seem to find a plugin for it either.
- I've fallen in love with xenForo's alert system. Does Vanilla have anything similar to this? Basically, you get an alert when someone replies to your posts or quotes you.
