Bring back the BBCode source editor

  • The new "source view" on Woltlab Suite Forum 5 replaces the classic bbcode editor for a limited html one. This editor is extremely verbose and makes manual edits a pain. Consider the following snippet written in a WBB4 forum:

    Code
    [u][b]Lorem ipsum[/b][/u]
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

    Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium:
    [img]http://i.imgur.com/xxxxxx.png[/img]

    And now what the new HTML editor spits out if you attempt to edit it:

    Code
    <p><u><strong>Lorem ipsum</strong></u></p>
    <p><br></p>
    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.</p>
    <p><br></p>
    <p><img src="https://i.imgur.com/xxxxxx.png" alt="xxxxxxxxx.png"></p>
    <p><br></p>
    <p>Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium:</p>
    <p><br></p>
    <p><img src="https://i.imgur.com/xxxxxx.png" alt="xxxxxxxxx.png"></p>
    <p><br></p>

    Far less practical and elegant. Please bring back the BBCode editor, or least an option to choose between BBCode or HTML for the source view tab.
