  • How do I configure the settings for the "New Post" screen???

    This is how my current settings look like when user trying to make a new post.




    I would like to make the new post screen look like the one below. How do I go about doing it? Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

      Instead of having each individual user go in and manually configure this option, I (as a site admin) would like to configure this as the default settings for all users. I couldn't find it anywhere in the Admin Control Pannel.

        Edit your register template to make this the default. Change the seting from '2' to '3'. Not tested but I think this will work:

        Code:
        <label for="rb_showvbcode_2"><input type="radio" name="showvbcode" value="3" id="rb_showvbcode_2" $showvbcodechecked[3] />Show Enhanced (WYSIWYG) Toolbar</label>

        Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

          I searched all over the register.php file but couldn't find the line of code you referred to aboved. Can you let me know what is the line number is?

          Your help is greatly appreciated.

                    vBulletin is template based.
                    The templates are controlled through the style manager.
                    The style manager is in the admin contorl panel.
                    The admin control panel is accessable only by the administrators.
                    in version 3 of vbulletin the acp is in the admincp/ directory

                      I did say the register template, not register.php.

                          I tried Steve Machol's suggestion above and it did not work. Here is what worked:

                          In register.php

                          CHANGE:

                          $showvbcodechecked[1] = HTML_CHECKED;

                          TO:

                          $showvbcodechecked[2] = HTML_CHECKED;


                          What would I use as a database query to change everyone's preference to WYSIWYG?

                            Yeah my suggestion doesn't work. I though this changing this in registeradult_global would (changing '1' to '2'):

                            Code:
                            <input type="hidden" name="options[vbcode]" value="2" />
                            But this doesn't seem to have any affect whatsoever. It definitely should not be necessary to edit the scripts to make a change like this.

                              Would be nice to include in future versions a default "new user template." Could be a dumby account or whatever but all new users would inherit the settings of that account.

                              Either that, or something simple in the configs to allow a default for this and other settings for new users?
