Any markup language available?


Recommended Posts

The "insert code" form is a huge pain in this forum software. It's extremely slow and it's "fancy" syntax highlighting makes it even slower.

 

Isn't there any bbcode / markup / html code usable to avoid this form?

 

Like:

<code>HTML style</code

 

/code Atlassian cloud style

 

[code]bbcode style[/code]

 

    Stackoverflow style (4 whitespaces)

 

```

   Github hub style

```

 

The Atlassian markup is my absolute favorite as it is the fastest way and inserts the code block directly into the textarea while typing the code.

 

And: Why does it force line breaks in code blocks?! This makes code in the mobile view unreadable.

I have enabled this: 

Enable BBCode Parsing
"BBCode is a legacy markup language that was originally designed to allow users to submit rich content prior to the advancement of WYSIWYG editors. BBCode support is deprecated and may be removed in a future release, and we recommend leaving this option disabled for greater performance and reliability if your community does not rely on BBCode parsing to format posts."

 

Looking into the other settings....

I don't see a way to adjust the code blocks. Given the above, are you saying the HTML drop down doesn't adhere to normal syntax?

The main thing what bothers me is the popup itself. If you quote something, then it does not open a popup. It simply inserts the quote inline. So why does it differ for the code insertion?!

 

And the popup is not only a popup. It has a loading time?! It shows for 1 to 3 seconds a loading circle. What does it do? Loading 3 million javascript files? ^^ I think this is because the syntax highlighting feature which nobody (?) needs. So I hoped it can be fully disabled.
