Heads up on the new forum interface.

Post by Klomster on Sun Jun 16, 2013 4:24 am

Most of you have probably noticed the new topic response box. This is an update from from forumotion and not something grey knights forum is responsible for.

Most of you probably have not encountered a problem this new design holds but here is the heads up anyway.

The new system features a sort of "simplified" "quick quote" feature, which very clearly shows how the post will look when quoted.
The problem is that you cannot properly edit it from now on (only add to the quote, thus failing to work as a quote.)

We at the board of this forum has come up with a simple although not obvious solution.

At the top right of the response box menu, there is an icon looking like a paper with text. It is called Switch Editor Mode
If this button is pressed, the "simplified" mode will be exhanged for the old mode, the core html codes will be visible (f'ex [ quote] [/ quote]) and you can now freely edit the text again wherever you want.

Why the "simplified" version is like it is i do not know but i for one want nothing of it.

I hope you have a swell time as usual and i will see you on the boards!

Happy quoting Very Happy

Yesterday editing my pics heavy post gave me a lot of troubles, the possibility to switch to the "old" ways is welcome. I find easier to edit some line of codes than adding/removing images without any control Wink

Always throw more stormtroopers at it.

Whether you fail or not, you will have loads of proffesionals on site with sexy ass plates.
