View Full Version : WYSIWYG Editor
04-25-2006, 06:53 PM
Don't know what DH did while trying to help me with my sig file but now the editing looks different and there it says WYSIWYG Editor at the bottom of the window. I don't want the What You See Is What You Get Editor. How do I turn it off and get back to the original way it was?
Thanks in advance,

Go to User CP. Select "Edit Options" then scroll allllll the way down until you see "Message Editor Interface" and there is a drop-down menu. Select "Standard" and save your changes. If you choose "Basic" then you won't have smilies or the ability to bold, italicize, etc....it's just a text box. Choosing the Standard Editor is basic with the "bells and whistles" but it's different from the WYSIWYG.

BTW, how do I get the [IMG] code ON in the posting rules?

Only thing I found was...
Go to User CP and Edit Options again.
Look for "Visible Post Elements" and make sure that "Show Images (including attached images and images in [IMG] code)" is checked off.
Other than that, I'm not sure as I didn't see anything else.

I guess I should be more explicit with my question. When I am editing my signature file, the box at the bottom labeled Posting Rules has [IMG] code is Off and HTML Code is Off. It may not be possible to turn these on but I was hoping I could put a ticker in the signature.
Thanks again for all of your help!

Ohhh...now I see what you mean. Yeah, that looks like a feature Alissa may (or may not) have deliberately turned off from her end, probably to keep bandwidth down. Sorry...can't help ya there!

I just found this thread! I assure you that turning it back on won't add any bandwidth. These tickers are hosted on their own websites. That is why they offer a code and not the actual image. It's a dynamic image anyway and changes - in my case, according to the weather.
It would only add bandwidth if people posted HTML addresses that were hosted HERE to begin with.

Well, as it stands, I am not authorized to do that...it's by Alissa's discretion and choice if it gets turned back on or not.

Thanks. I'm not mad or anything. I do understand. I just thought I was doing something wrong until I found this thread.
Will ya'll let us know if it gets turned back on? Tell Alissa that it's similar to photobucket or imageshack. It's similar to how Myspace handles images in peoples comments. You can't upload them, there has to be an HTML code with an href to a host site. If Myspace hosted all those umpteen million images, they'd be under in no time.
Love ya Rawkin!
