Suggestion for next generation of IPB


Guest EDAInsight

Recommended Posts

If we are able to insert a table in a topic, I think it's a good feature. It will make the topic richer. Does IPS have plan to add this feature? or, this feature has been included in current version (I'm a new custumer :rolleyes: ).

I can only speak a little English, I hope you can understand what I have said. :shifty:

yes it works well in 2.1 and is still quite often used. Unfortunately in 2.2 you are locked into a very extreme limited viewpoint that the progammers have dictated the customers will be limited to. My hired programmers for one of my sites tried all they could do to overcome the current 2.2 setup, yet were unable to find any means other than using BBcode. And this is clunky and often does break the page. Let's hope in 3.0 IPB corrects this.

I've no idea what you are referring to skysober.

You've NEVER been able to just insert a table into a topic. That is, without doing the following:

1) Enabling HTML for your user group
2) Ensuring the setting in the ACP to allow HTML posts (where allowed) is enabled
3) Ensuring the forum is configured to allow HTML in posts (where allowed)
4) You must post with the STD, as the RTE will format html in it's own fashion
5) You must select the html option in the drop down menu when making the post.

If you follow those steps, you can insert whatever HTML you want into a post.

We do use strip_tags already as I recall. :)

The RTE actually does support tables on the backend - but with the high potential for abuse this functionality is commented out/unavailable.

With some javascript changes, and some bbcode class changes, it would be possible to support tables. But again, it comes back down to ability to break the layout. How much control do you really want to afford to your members?

Could you not allow this as per usergroup? I would certainly like my admins to be able to do this - and if the buttons are only in the RTE (not STD) then they can only really screw it up if they know the BBCode tags and are deliberatly trying to screw the page up.
Couldn't you also do something like the [table] tag changes to <table><tr><td><table> and the [/table] tag changes to </table></td></tr></table> ? I'm not enitrely sure, but surely that would at least limit the damage they could do?
