    This has been mentioned a few times in several threads. I am sure there is not a dedicated thread for this request in this section.

    TinyMCE does the job, but CK editor is a lot better from my own experience and the only thing I miss of vB 4.

    Please consider adding and replacing TinyMCE =]

    After using the other editors on both respected softwares I have to say I prefer tinymce. Perhaps it's just bad implementation on the other softwares but i find the editor here less troublesome than the others ones on other forum softwares that are using ckeditor. Never thought i'd say that.

    I think Xenforo has work to do before changing editors.

    BTW, what is better about CKeditor in your opinion ?

    Don't forget about the TinyMCE improvements.

    Well if they did change editors i hope they work on a smiley manager. we have a good alternative in the dc smiley manager with categories. There's just no way i could ever go back to using any form of drop down death smiley menu where it's 1999 all over again.

    Strange, but I did not find any kind of "Editor" at Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. :eek:

    .... and those websites seem to work quite well without an "Editor" :confused:

    Even more strange, I could not find any "BB code" at Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. :p

    I understand maybe it is not the best from the developer's point of view. After all I am just a end user.

    The new CK editor has a better UI, the BB code editor is a lot better. Less bugs IMO, though I guess this is debatable. I found it easier to use and it appealed both to BB code savy and just simple plain text users. My members also loved it a lot more, it was more versatile and did the job in the best way for us.

    FWIW, my "read" of the situation is that unless TinyMCE updates go super well for Xenforo ... I bet they eventually change to CKeditor.

    I think a BB-Code-Editor is an essential pillar of forums to help an average member decorate their post, put emphasis and organize their information, which is essential to good communication.

    I don't know how FB, Twitter and the rest are managing as I use none of those :p

    From what I read just a sec ago, they are preparing a new 4.o version


    But again, maybe it's because of the current bugs, I'd still give anything to have CK Editor as default. So I do hope you're right.

    This is a No Thanks due to Redactor being implemented in 1.2
