By default when editing messages?

    The only thing I've come to hate on XenForo is editing posts. If I use colors and go to edit it, it is already formatted in the edit box and I can't edit the bbcode.

    Can this be changed? By default or in your profile?

    Also what is a content management system? Wikipeida doesn't help and I always thought it was the use of multiple domains/servers to run one website (such as hosting data on server, images on the other, etc)

    You can set the plain text editor to be the default in your account settings, or click the [​IMG] in the upper right corner.
    Or use the eraser in the upper left corner to remove formatting.

    A CMS is a program which enables you to manage content on a home page for example.
    A bit like a portal.

    How would I set it in the ACP so it is like that for everyone by default?

    And oh, sort of like a Homepage? Why does it have it's own 'program' or name? What is different from it and a portal?

    You can't.
    That is something which each member sets in their account preferences, although you could run a query to update it for all existing members.
    They would be able to switch back though.

    A CMS is more powerful and comprehensive than a portal.

    This would be an example of a cms program(sorry for linking to competition)
    and an example is used here:

    Is that correct? And what is the domain thing I was referring to called anyway?

    Also, would it be possible in the future to have that a setting to be default? Should I make a suggestion thread?

    Thanks for your help.
