Highly interested in the latest version, with the tables button and other neat features that Redactor might have. This suggestion is for the next version of xF or 2.0, which ever comes first !
We have this now:
But this is more cool:
Any idea? Thanks!
Since 2.0 is a decent rewrite, does that mean the Editor will get looked at? Would be neat if xF modified Redactor for its own needs but based on a newer version.Aside from anything, the editor is heavily modified for our needs and therefore replacing the editor is essentially a rewrite, rather than an in place upgrade. It also currently provides compatibility with IE8 which we are currently still supporting.
Fair enough, I can understand what you are saying.Not necessarily. The current editor has had a lot of time invested in it, it works and is backwards compatible with older browsers which to a certain extent may still be desirable, even in XF2. No decisions have been made yet of course so this is a valid suggestion but assumptions that we will change the editor or support all of the editor's features out of the box may be wrong.
Apart from this would you be able to educate/explain what else are the advantages of using the old modded version/what xF has done?The current editor has had a lot of time invested in it, it works and is backwards compatible with older browsers which to a certain extent may still be desirable
Senpai knows bestI could similarly counter that with a rhetorical question: "What are the advantages of moving to a new version of Redactor or <insert other editor here>?"
It's probably not the best time to have this conversation, but I thought it was useful to point out that the reasons for desiring an updated version of Redactor were somewhat flawed. You want tables, but a new version of Redactor won't give you that automatically.
Ultimately, if there are advantages of moving to a different editor, we will, if there's not, we won't. For now, we'll have to wait and see
.I guess we can mark this as "Not planned" seeing as XF 2.0 is no longer using Redactor.
The good news is we're now using an editor named Froala which on the whole so far we've found much simpler to work with in the majority of cases and have had to rely less on various code edits/patches like we did with previous editors.
The end result is an editor which, when updated by its developer, we can usually just roll that out without any sort of headache. The developer has also been responsive to bug reports and requests for change so all round!
