      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Freeware BBCode editor / previewer

1 post in this topic

Hi All,


My search is over. For the last 3 or 4 months I've been looking for a standalone bbcode editor/viewer. I've always disliked being dependent on the online editors and I just knew someone else had the same idea. Here it finally is, and it's freeware to boot. You start the application and up pops a box that looks exactly like the posting editor area in a bbcode forum. There is no learning curve and you will now have instant preview capability. You can create posting templates and you can "brand" the editor for distribution on your forum. Save the current post as a draft and come back to it later or keep different versions of a post with a cut and paste into notepad to save it as text.


I nearly always find what I'm looking for but it's not always free or not always what I really want once I try it out. The Pawsoft Fass editor is almost everything I want. All I could really ask for now is a "Save As" and a more generic "Open" menu. I'm sure with some encouragement this will bloom into a real "must have" utility for dedicated forum users. Be sure to write a thank you or send a donation.
