    Seems my avatar is the only one it works well with... it accentuates my face.

    The round avatar works quite well with mine as well, or at least it doesn't eliminate anything important.  But it doesn't work well with ED's avatar, so I understand he's going to switch it back to square anyway.

    Oh, and I don't seem to be able to post in the Guest Area.  Makes sense, as I'm not a guest, but it does mean I can't reply to guests in there!

    You mean switching to https?
    Okay, I'll look into that!

    True. Nothing I can fix though, will just take some time.
    I'll probably create a forum where we can collect any issues and improvements and work through them one by one.

    Avatars are back to rectangle now [​IMG]

    I just haven't had the time to readd them yet [​IMG]

    Okay, seems like I have to check all permissions, they seem messed up.

    It does? For me, it shows BBCode when I click on source...?

    Yeah I see HTML code, however when I look at the source code of  the comment from your post I see BBCODE.

    Edit: However if I edit this post it switches back to HTML... odd...

    Huh.  This is certainly something to wake up to.  Let's see how this works...

    And now a spoiler. 

    Plain non source editing seems okay.  Now let's try the source editor. 

    • listing things
    • things
    • is
    • awful on non-source view

    • Ah!
    • much
    • easier
    • now
    • Source editing is good

    It seems to be BBCode alright. Thanks ED!

    However, I can't seem to find the full screen editor.  Where is it?  Or does it not exist anymore?


    • EDIT: Never mind.  It is now HTML.  Huh. In non-souce view, it looks like HTML.  In source view, it looks like HTML as well.  Well, I'll wait for a while and see if things change.

    True! It seems editing changes the code to HTML! Weird!
    I'll check that!

    Because the reply box just ask me for a file if i use it I wasn't able to post, so, I found out a way to reply with Opera 12... I have to switch to "user mode", fill the text box with what I want to say, and then switch again to "author mode" to press the button... but if I edit the post, pressing the save button does nothing :(

    Anyway I can't find the "quote" option in the other posts

    I can reply in the official pyra news forum now.


    It took half a dozen edits to get the formatting right though.  Switching back and forth from source and regular seems to create problems.  Also, just about every time I edited my post the hyperlink formatting went haywire.  I also had to insert line breaks manually with a couple BRs between each paragraph - otherwise everything was just running together.

    Okay, it seems the bbcode plugin is causing quite a bit of issues... like the HTML stuff when you click on edit (as it overrides the HTML parser).
    So I guess we need to disable it again :/

    Let's see how we can improve the editor otherwise!

    Oh well, I just checked the IPB4 support forums, and it seems like 4.1 is almost ready. Their site is already working with 4.1 and finally, the editor works as it should!

    It's still WYSIWYG, but with proper quoting (similar to 3.4, but actually working now!), quote name again, etc.

    It should be out in October, so we an expect a good update then :)
