will we again have a button, making colourful posts?
the basic approach i have taken is to keep some bbc code functionality available, while making it a little less inviting.
So the color tag is still available to use, but there is no dedicated button for it. I think there used to be large dropdowns for color and font size, which took up a lot of space.
Instead, there is one button that combines font size and color change:
Clicking this will insert both a font size and font color tag like so:[size=12pt][color=red] [/color][/size]
So, if you want some custom font you can use that button and then edit the details.
My thinking was that this had two advantages:
- First, it helps keep the number and size of buttons down to a cognitively manageable level.
- Second, it discourages people from playing around with font colors and sizes unless they are really determined to.
