Is the editor broken?

Recommended Posts

Hmmm

 

I can't see the usual editor commands, just a minimal html interface. Is this just me or another forum "upgrade"?

 

I have no problems with other IPS boards - just this one.

 

Windows 8.1, PaleMoon 24.7.2

Can't you just fix instead of telling me that other users have the same problem?

In an effort to fix the problem from within our software here, I have removed and reinstalled our skin, tried reverting to ip.board default theme, and no matter what I do, hover, dropdown and editor BBCode items do not come back.

 

I hope that whatever broke them will be fixed by IP.Board/Invision Power Board as they can. If these were disabled because of security issues (since they were security patches, I would imagine so), I hope IP.Board/Invision Power Board will come up with fixes that will give us both security and the the features we love.

 

I have done all I can for now.

 

I am sorry if some folks are unhappy. Security trumps features in this case.

 

We will have to wait on IP.Board/Invision Power Board.

Short answer, No it can not be fixed.

Sorry. I don't fix anything around here. I don't do windows either. I was just letting you know that there are quite a few issues. Repairs by the powers-than-be are pending.

 

Have a nice day.

Much like Windows, IPB software gets worse at every iteration.
