Greetings,

First off let me say this, congratulations on the hard work to not only put in a cross browser supported WYSIWYG editor and make it work well with ocPortal. I understand that was no easy feat, and let me tell you, it looks great, and it works! It is usable under firefox, rekonq, konqueror, opera, epiphany, and others. Not only that but it fixes some other issues I had but knew wasn't issues others had, such as the color picker box. You see, under the old spiffy editor, while using KDE 4.5 with automatic window grouping set, the color picker would open up in its own window, which automatically grouped with my firefox window and set the size to the color picker box window. Annoying, but was an issue with my won WM setup, and not with ocPortal. However this new editor has the pop-out instead of the own window for the color picker, instantly solving that annoying issue lol.

However, I noticed real quick that there is something missing. The underline button. Which is fascinating really since I never noticed the lack of an underline button in the original editor, but that is the case too. Fun huh?

But yeah, it works, looks great, and is just plain awesome. So thanks a million!

Like ocPortal? Want to thank Chris and gang somehow? Then help out in the chat room! It really needs your help! Just open it in a tab everytime you open your web browser, and when you hear a "ding", check it out!

The underline is removed intentionally as it's a highly recommended usability guideline to not use it (visitors think underline=link). If you want it back you can change the options we pass to the editor easily enough.

Ah ok lol.

It's no big deal though. I don't think I really ever made use of underline, I just noticed it missing when testing the editor in rekonq browser.

Gotta tell ya though, thank you so much for the cross browser editor. I know it must have taken a lot of work to replace the editor and make it work well with the system, just as I understand it must have hurt some to replace an editor you guys had made yourself. So thank you for doing that, cause now I can use the browser of my choice and still get the full benifits of a working WYIWYG editor.

Yeah, I generally stay away from underlined text for that very reason.  You end up with a lot of people complaining about "broken links"…

Actually the old editor was basically Xinha, and it wasn't so hard to replace to be honest. A few hours work. Mainly we had not done it as previously we had planned to change editor as part of a wider replacement of our Javascript to YUI, but I decided to change the plans as the WYSIWYG in YUI we planned to use is no longer maintained as a full WYSIWYG editor, plus it looks like Yahoo are on a downward spiral.
