    I've received the following request from a member, is there anyway I can accommodate his wishes?:

  • I think it could be difficult since WCF us converting posts to HTML, so there effectively no bbcode left after saving the post.

    I am not really a fan of this method, since it's hard to edit a post afterwards if you only know bbcode. Also the html version if a post, which is saved afterwards, contains much more tags than the initial bbcode version.

    If there would be a possibility to have an bbcode editor after saving the post, I would also be interested in this.

    Having html as a source code might have its advantages and it doesn't need to parse every saved post (although that could be cached). But editing in bbcode would be more convenient for most community members.
