The Forum ☛ Components ☛ Editor administration panel is where you configure the Post editors for your Forum. You can set the default editor for your Users and also select whether users are allowed to select a different editor in their profile. Also, if you are using the rich text editor (tinyMCE), you can set a different language and enable RTL support.
If preferred, one of the ‘QuickTags’ editor can be invoked which uses standard HTML syntax, or a plain textarea box can also be used.
Please note that when the TinyMCE editor is set as the default, individual members can opt to use the Quicktags editor via a setting in their user profile if they are granted the permission to do so.
Some users may paste content into the editing window that has been copied from a source with embedded formatting such as MS Word or even from their browser display. This can add a large amount of unwanted and unseen data to a post and will usually force a unique display when the post is shown.
You can set an option here to reject any such post and force the user to paste their content into one of the toolbar filters (MS Word or Text) that automatically removes the embedded formatting. This is strongly recommended when using the Rich Text Editor.
Thus setting allows you to select the language file to be used by the TinyMCE Rich Text Editor. Please note this setting has no effect on any other part of the forum. It is also important to note that not all languages are available for TinyMCE. Availability is, however, checked with every major release of Simple:Press Forum,. it is also possible to add your own language files should it become available.
This panel can also turn on support for right to left languages.
It is recommended that if you wish to customise the styles you create a copy of existing stylesheets and customise those to your requirements. Then on this panel enter the name of the replacement stylesheet which will then be used instead of the default. In this way, your changes will not be overwritten with a version update.
