I'm not objective here, I passionately hate this forum software. Bohemia Interactive (ArmA games) also switched to it some years ago and it sucks so often. Not sure if it is a problem here. My main problems are about posting/editing stuff in code tags. It's a mess.

Care to elaborate/provide an example?

most of the reason for using the BBCode editor before was that the rich text editor was really shit, full of bugs (especially if you were cutting and pasting, and then editing the pasted text, was easy to delete some hidden character and completely mess up the formatting of the whole post). the new editor seems a lot less shit, haven't encountered a problem with it yet.

1 - can't delete the code tags on a mobile, like i've mentioned last page...

2 - you have to move a code tag 2 measures in order for it to move only 1...

3 - i just quoted you and look how the quote tag looks like, 2 empty paragraphs after your line...

i bet there's simpler ways to implement these features, i mean, old forum was like what 10 years old? and it was way handy... no fancy stuff...

"Code tags"? You mean like for programming code? If you're talking about the quotes, I've mentioned that all you need to do is put the cursor after the quote box, hit backspace, and viola! Gone.

You also have to realize that a lot of your frustration on mobile may not be due to the forum software itself, but more due to your device's screen size, your browser, etc.

Also, the old forum's "mobile" skin was very, very limited - nowhere near the ease of use and functionality this one has. I can literally do everything I can do on desktop on mobile with perhaps the exception of pasting in images (I tried that the other day and was disappointed to find out it doesn't work like it does on desktop).

i'm talking about the quotes and the spoiler tags, on mobile, you can't delete them, i've posted above the messages that i get every time i put the cursor where u told me to and hit backspace...

now this above is not on mobile, it's on desktop... look at your previous quote of me, there's empty paragraphs added by the editor after your quote...

Just delete the spaces if they bother you that much?

What browser on mobile are you using?

And I keep telling you I can (can anyone else confirm)? Let me see if I can do a screen recording of it to demonstrate...

Is that the stock Android browser (which I would assume is Chrome), or another browser? Do you have another browser to try?

I'm not too familiar with Android, so I don't know why you wouldn't be able to backspace and remove the quotes unless it was a limitation of your browser.

You can do it on desktop, right?

Really odd that Chrome on iOS can do it but Chrome on Android cannot... can any other Android users confirm/deny this?

It's difficult. Basically, first I just write down classical bbcode tags "

...codestuff

". Now often I want to change things. There is no raw text view (which sucks) so I have to double click the code and get an editor overlay window. I make my changes there and this thing, after submitting, always messes with my code. Inserts word wrap IIRC. Also, if I make a mistake (like closing with "/quote" instead of "/code") it is always hard to correct that. Cannot remember why, but the UI based side sucks, I miss a raw editor. TBH have not yet looked if there is one here.

Jeeses. Now what I described happened in my prior posting. Exactly that is what sucks so hard. LOL. I wrote "[s p o i l e r][ c o d e]" without the spaces and now it interpreted it to code. That is totally clunky or maybe impossible to undo it. A RAW editor is needed badly.

It only sucks because you're accustomed to using the prior iteration of the editor - now, it is much easier to compose/format posts. You can use common bold/italic/underline keyboard shortcuts for formatting (e.g., CTRL+B for bold on/off), and there might be more.

The editor integration with the forum software no longer supports BBCode, instead using native HTML. Unfortunately, we can't give people the ability to edit/write HTML for obvious reasons. Sorry.

The mobile theme wastes large amounts of screen space:

I marked show filters as well as it’s configured once and almost never used again

The „showing all content...“ sentence  could be removed as well as it adds no relevant information
