  • Yeah, you can add plugins to the editor as if it was a regular installation. :smile:

    I tried that editor on wordpress it is nice one but a bit buggy as all of these editors can be. Thanks for adding it :D

  • bbcode isn't a standard, so vanilla bbcode may not be CKEditor

    if you are using a WYSIWYG, using bbcode is kind of pointless.

    grep is your friend.

    The problem is when you already have a forum for a few years and use the bbcode by users initiative , I try to change to html but publications made with bbcode but this appear disorganized... So I'm bound to bbcode and good if I find a more comfortable way that users write their publications especially for the choice of font size and color, welcome be the bbcode in CKEditor :)

  • I tried to download this and upload it to my plugins section, but I don't see it available as a plugin... forgive me for being brand new to vanilla -- I'm sure I'm doing something wrong! how did you get this to work?
    I'm moving my forum over from phpbb, so I would at least like former bbcode to view correctly from old posts.

    its probably there if you loaded it correctly.

    it is what I consider one of those misnamed plugins - the folder name does not match the description or even begin with part of the name.

    I really find it very difficult to find plugins when the name doesn't match

    look under Vanilla Ckeditor.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    In vanilla format is saved per record.

    grep is your friend.

    I know, but when I change in the config file

    $Configuration['Garden']['InputFormatter'] = 'BBCode';

    To html or markdown, all the old post appear as if I did not acknowledge the BBCode

    I just changed directly in the the Format column to BBCode and the Body to [b]test[/b] of a comment and discussion it worked first time.

    I wonder what you have in the Format Column of the old posts. Don't change anything just check.

    grep is your friend.

    I went back to switch to Html, make a backup of the database, delete it and restore the backup, and now works :)

  • is this a live site? Or are you in between migration? Because if not you can convert they bbcode to html.
