Post Editor

Feature Requests
  • While using the post editor, when we try to bold or italicize using keyboard shortcut keys, that does not work. is it possible to enable such shortcut keys in the post editor, since most people are use tho keys like "ctrl+B" and all.

    Also it would be helpful if you can add a full screen button to the post editor which can take the post editor to full screen, i know there is already a drag and resize option for the editor, but a one click full screen option might be, i guess, a little easier. 💃

  • Well, it is good to have plugins but such simple things like shortcut buttons and all can be enabled inside the core. Don't you think so?

  • Rather than dragging the button to make it bigger, just click it. 👍

    popular posts in our forum are usually long posts, therefore for post lists we use this CSS customization:

    .posts-list .posts-list-item .content { overflow: auto; max-height: 480px; }

    so, people can go through all the posts with scrolling without changing the page or going to the related topics... feel free to change the post height as you like.

    Thanks @phenomlab for this CSS codes and thanks again @baris for the plugin.

    @Bri said in Last Post/Last Poster > fa-arrow-circle-right - Lets use it in all instances! 🙂:

    I feel like it makes the UI more busy and doesn't really add anything.

    I can understand that feeling, but busy is very relative and I was aware some might like it, others might not - eye of the beholder, beauty vs function.

    You know if you want all this UI stuff, you're more than welcome to take an existing theme and modify it to your hearts desire.

    That is a valid point which I accounted for in my comments but not in the context of my agenda and thus my activity I would say it's not even a concern or should be, but - Please let me explain.

    I'm concentrating on out-of-the-box nodeBB.

    I'm looking at nodeBB persona bundle with a critical eye to enhance and evolve it, to engage the world with it's best foot forward - among the broad spectrum of forum platforms out there, historical and new, engage the widest market, users, owners and beyond.

    Facebook & Twitter to name but a few have crippled many once great forum communities across the vast stretches of the interwebs often by simply starving them of new active users as the virtual Big Tec Malls sucked people (frankly captured as children) into their big and shiny LIKE driven platforms.

    NodeBB IMHO is a great base, to begin to turn that equation on it's head, even fight back, but perhaps I'm foisting too many hopes & dreams on mere refinements and feature requests. So I shall digress no more on that point but it's why I'm offering this here as opposed to any other new platform out there.

    I'm banking on nodeBB being a great community who also share similar values or outlooks. I'm not expecting or looking to garner agreement but support for alwasy looking and always thinking about more or better.

    Initiating this process, it was recommended to me by @julian to use the forums to engage as I am doing.

    I do not know any other constructive way to engage the development of nodeBB as an active contributor, other than this. I am not a coder and get by on basic HTML and CSS, often on a needs must basis while GitHub still looks alphabet soup to me, and scares me a bit.

    Maybe if I create an account it will start to knit (and I will eventually).

    Tangentially I have slowly begun to understand how to build a theme for bodeBB but if I tried that now it would not be confident it would stand up to rigor.

    As I spec and find things and formulate a new insight or suggestion - It's not that I so want these all for me and the dev team to do my bidding - no, but I am thinking what the user needs, what the admin needs, or the broader active but lurking user needs and sometimes a mix of these points of view.

    These are not random considerations as I have a lot of experience with historical forums, users bases, trends and various trials of the humble site-admins and mods.

    First and foremost it is distilled through the prism of a visual spatial understanding, as a designer who has been pushing pixels for far too long, totally inspired by nodeBB's very existence to reinvigorate the forum as a platform in a forum that is re-invigorating the forum as a viable platform for the future by it's sheer existence - it speaks to me of it's potential, to push the envelope of expectations, in a refined fit and finish or radical reformation that are conventionally reliable in the cut adn thrust of day in day out forum life.

    Right now I'm calling it as I see it with as much visual support I can muster in my spare time, for user consideration and attention of the dev's. (thus request for upvotes!)

    If someone wants to partner with me to help dev in this direction as a theme, please message me but I can't help feel that my focus is refining then entry core for the widest of applications and then proposing roadmap features like Composer - Right beside you - to go beyond the scope of a mere theme.

    Hope this helps. 🙂

    I'm not seeing this feature in the dev. I'd like to allow anonymous posting for registered users. They have to register to post which would enable banning users and they can post while hiding their username from everyone else except admin/moderators. Replies will be by post number or 'OP' for the first post/thread starter. Throughout the site instead of avatars showing it will be an icon linked to a category, set by admin. And within that category it could be an arbitrary place holder like a bullet.

    Intent would be for Leaks sites, Classifieds sites, etc.

    Some kind of paging function would also be good for mobile devices where RAM is frequently at a high premium.

    NodeBB causes not-infrequent browser crashes on my iPad2 on longer threads. When I click a link that takes me to the 60th post in a thread or something, there is a long delay as the slower browser begins by loading the op oldest posts in batches. It would be good if there were a way to make it skip doing that and take me directly to the unread posts (without switching the full application to paged mode).

    Perhaps on mobile devices you could add a secondary navigation bar with the paging functions (arrows, "displaying X-Y of Z", etc).

    What happens to attachments that are no longer used in any post? Are they cleaned up on a regular basis?
