    Hey there,

    There are two version of your WYSIWYG Editor features I'm familiar with. One is the one this board uses, the other is MUCH more decked out, stylized, and has a ton of dropdown features.

    Could you please familiarize me with the two? I would greatly appreciate it.

    There is only one editor, the one you see here on xenforo.com.

    You will receive the editor as it is on this site, if you are testing the official redactor site, that is a radical change and upgrade from our current one.

    Those are two separate editors, the first looks to be TinyMCE. You'll receive the one you see here.

    The first one is from 1.1, the second is from 1.2, the current release.

    The first editor is the old original 1.1.x editor. It was large in file size, not mobile friendly, or easy to support a responsive design.

    The current editor (in XenForo 1.2.x) supports a responsive design, is small in file size, and is mobile web friendly. But you can of course change the button colours and icons if you're just going for the look.

    It's also worth noting that the functionality between the two is the same so the comment: "the other is MUCH more decked out" is not strictly true.

    So you're saying, in essence, they have the same features, but a different interface?

    Generally, speaking, yes. The new editor is more mobile friendly and also loads quick becuses it's smaller in file size (as well as the code is better optimized)

    Attached is how I've changed my icons. There are a few free resources here on XenForo.com that easily show you how to do it, if colour is important to you (even a newbie can do it)

    The switch in editors fixed several bugs from the 1.1 branch, but yes, fundamentally the feature set is the same.

    No, they don't have exactly the same features.

    There are 4 editors compatible with XenForo:
    1. The default one (a rewriting of Redactor done by XenForo developers that works better than the original)
    2. TinyMCE 4
    3. MarkItUp Integrator - 2013 (BbCodes editor)
    4. Minorin (BbCodes editor - don't know if it's working with XenForo 1.2)
