I notice that when editing in the Galleries Viewing Image pages at the description box the option for 'SOURCE' vs WYSIWYG has changed. I see the:
[Disable WYSIWYG editing] option and when I click on it I get:

Would you like to keep WYSIWYG disabled? (this will be recorded on your computer using a cookie) with a Yes/No option, I choose NO and get this:

You have chosen to disable WYSIWYG. You can choose whether you want to throw-away your current editing contents, or convert it - or you can cancel if you wish to return to WYSIWYG. Cancel/convert/discard I have not gone this far yet...

If I choose the 'throw-away your current editing contents' option do I loose everything in the description box? ...and if I were to choose the convert it will it show the code as 'SOURCE' like in earlier ocP versions? Does this change the settings on this page but not on the other pages?

I'm not used to the NEW WAY of doing what I used to do by switching between the 2 modes by one click at will and not sure I like it (I know big deal, live with it...).

I notice on the comcode pages they still have the SOURCE option available. If it is too much of a problem to me I may just do the editing on a Comcode page and then transfer it to the gallery description box as I plan to use a general template modified for each page. and I'm not sure if the new way will work as easily has it has in the past.

We haven't removed the normal ckeditor source view, except possibly for non-admins (I think we removed some buttons non-admins wouldn't need).

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I can see that now. We try and simplify the WYSIWYG for users, but in this case it happened for admins too. This makes the simplification a bit smarter.

Going forward we'll isolate out the WYSIWYG settings into a separate template so that people can tune it more carefully to their own needs.
