    Default Guide to getting rid of BB code as you type

    Now, I know everyone is hindered from time to time (more often than others) of the BB code necessary to change text size, and make it bold, italicized, and etc....

    There is a way to get rid of most of it:

    Go to your User CP, and then go to "Edit Options" under the Settings & Options tab.

    Once you click it, scroll to the bottom, and you will find this:





    Now, you will go to the bottom of the page, and you will find this. Go to the Message Editor Interface, and select the "Enhanced Interface" option that you see on this screenshot. I have underlined the effects of this.

    You can see the font and the italics, size, etc as you type, and it makes it a whole lot more convenient to quote colored, big, italicized, etc. text by making it worlds easier...


    I felt that this needed a thread to itself that way it would be conveniently found on page one.


    If you have any further questions, just ask me. However, I think I've got it all covered here...

    AHA!!!

    That's why you have sooooo many redundant color codes whenever I quote you. I've always wondered why you do that, now I know it's an auto-edit thing. Every time you press "enter" it ends the color code and restarts it for your next line. All that extraneous BB code eats into your character limit per post, though. However, not many people ever get near the character limit, so that's really a moot point.

    I have never been bothered by seeing BB code, but this is a nice guide for those that are. Good work, Jurnis.

    I can't see any difference, but then I always had it like that






    See no difference


    in the editor thing should it say Color=red /color or should it actually show up red

    Wouldn't "guide" section be more appropriate?

    Actually, you're supposed to see it as you type it...

    I'll get my Wilmen account out and see if it's been changed, because it's an "as I type" thing. I select the color, and even though I cannot see the wrapping, it immediately types blue...


    EDIT:

    There are three different types of options that you can choose:

    Basic, which means TEXT-ONLY

    Standard, which is the default where you see the code. This is what every account is defaulted at unless you change it.

    Enhanced, which is the one I selected, and all I have to do is to select the color and start typing. It appears blue automatically. If I want a different color, I change it to red, green, etc.



    Enhanced is the one I am pointing you guys to...
