New Editor

The TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor was turning out to be more trouble than it was worth, so we're trying out BUEditor.

This is a non-WYSIWYG editor, so it will help to know basic HTML, but if you don't you can use the buttons along the top for images, links, bold, italics, block quotes, and lists. The eye button invokes a JavaScript preview function that allows you to preview your post or comment without reloading the page.

Feel free to leave feedback as a comment on this thread. The buttons are customizable (by site admins), so please let us know if there are any additional buttons which you would find helpful.

Editor doesn't always show up at first

This has actually been going on for a while. Often (always?) when I comment the comment entry form I see initially does not have the editor, but only has a basic text entry window. In order to get the editor I typically press the "Preview" button. I noticed that this is still happening with the new editor, so I thought I would mention it.

Yeah, TinyMCE sucks, and surprisingly, there are few free alternatives... but what about FCKEditor or Xinha ?
