Regarding the Simple Codes editor, I'm interested to hear what those who use that editor think of the changes.

It's still not a nice WYSIWYG editor like the Rich Text editor is, but I made a bunch of improvements.  Namely:

  • MUCH better support for editing posts and sending private messages (brand new Send PM page for BOTH editors).
  • Better Preview feature creates a more accurate representation of the final post.
  • MUCH better private message replyt abilities, including nice layout of message you're replying to, and automatically places room at the top and puts your cursor there.

The Simple Codes editor is now a first-class citizen!

Also, regarding that new private message page, people can finally use the new Rich Text editor to send PMs!

I have added a nifty auto-complete feature in the "TO" line, suggesting possible names as you type it.

It also is all-around much cleaner and handles all kind of input better.

    I thought something had changed because when I put quotation marks in my post it spelled them out rather than showing them.  (")

      That is so weird you say this. Just today I was looking at my�homepage� in youtube and saw my bio had exactly what you said. I made a quote in my bio and it had what you wrote above, instead of the quotation marks.

      Ok mystical section...what numbers�do quotations represent?�� Eek

        Do people see the little boxes all throughout my post? This computer is weird.

        Is it only me that sees this?

          Line 1 size 4
          Line 2 size 4
          Line 3 size 4

          Do the 3 lines above have the same size font?

                      It may have something to do with ending a paragragh... < /p > or starting one... < p >

                      box check... I hard coded paragraph breaks in the html editor here. Let's see if the boxes are still here...
