    Default HTML Editor

    Hello,

    Is it possible in future version to have a better text editor for producing HTML emails? While I can send HTML emails right now, it adds line breaks every time the HTML code moves onto a new line, thus messing up the formatting of the email. I realise I can get around this by writing all of the HTML on a single line, but it's not very easy to read and edit then.

    I'm not 100% sure if that's possible, since if I do that then it would no longer auto add line breaks for those content using simply BBCode.

    It's something I'll have to look in further for a future feature update

    Thanks for the very quick response. Perhaps it could be an option somewhere to switch between a BBCode editor and an HTML editor.

    Could you change it allow to use the basic editor (or would just clicking the "source" button work)?

    Yea, my lovely and beautiful Newsletter manager says she hates your product because it’s not built well for HTML

    I mean, do you really want to go and tell my gorgeous newsletter manager that she can’t post her newsletter that she made:

    Possibly you could consider using a different editor rather then the vbulletin one.
    That way your not held up by vb issues and you can implement html/text modes fully.

    That would also mean breaking familiarity and hoping that the new editor handles exactly like vB's editor in all instances so as to not break expectations.

    To a point but the vbulletin editor really is not up to full scratch without a lot of hacks anyway. I would leave the vbulletin editor for basic/bb mode and have a separate editor for advanced stuff which vbulletin wouldnt use anyway.
    With that this product becomes a huge tool for people and I can only see it being more popular.
    I have hacked in an editor or 2 in the past and its generally not too bad when you dont really have to slap it into vbulletin/bb format, I have been actively looking to upgrade my own notifications email to html/basic mode but it is a little hacky right now.

    As far as I'm aware, vBMail will accept HTML if you turn the "Allow HTML in non-forum areas" option (found somewhere in vB's own options) to Yes.

    Then again, I'm not sure if that affects Blogs.

    In either case, finding an editor whose licence allows its inclusion in commercial software and doesn't require a massive investment to aquire still doesn't (in my personal opinion) warrant its inclusion - there's the support aspect. If something goes wrong in it, we will be dependent on the 3rd party to fix it, and relay information from our customers.

    In addition, addons that integrate into CKEditor (say, a Spoiler tag, or a strikethrough tag) won't work - we'd receive complaints for that too.


    To reiterate, these are my personal opinions and as such do not necessarily represent the official position of DragonByte Technologies on this matter.
