    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.

    I poked around and there's a setting under ACP -> Content -> Boxes -> Latest Posts called "Restrict to Current Forum", but it's a bit too strict for what I was looking for: when selected, the box does not show content from subforums. What I'm really looking for is a "Restrict to Current Forum and its Subforums" setting, something that when you click on a "category" forum, such as Help – Customer to Customer, shows the latests posts from all of its subforums there, while still filtering the rest.


    Perhaps I should open a new thread since I suppose it's a new suggestion now.

    I'm looking for a PM "auto-responder" feature or plugin that automatically replies with a predefined text to incoming private messages (or conversations as it's known in WBB4). Does such a thing exist? Preferently compatible with WBB 4.0. Any tips would be much appreciated, thanks in advance :)
