Isn't it high time that we implement WYSIWYG editor?
I don't much know about difficulties in implementing it though, But I sure do know about the easiness in its use. :)

Also, I have one complain on the current editor. It reaps me off multiple spaces and leading spaces, so, I cant seem to format texts as I wish, Like
2) i) Line 1
ii) Line 2

I actually wanted the above to look like
2) i)..Line 1
....ii) Line 2

Why don't you learn how to use current editor, it does lists and indentions:

[LIST=1][*]one[*]two[*]three[/LIST]

generates
  1. one
  2. two
  3. three

while

[LIST][*]badger[*]badger[*]badger[LIST][*]mushroom[*]mushroom[/LIST][/LIST]

gives
  • badger
  • badger
  • badger
    • mushroom
    • mushroom

Oh! Thanks for
1. Telling me to
  1. (Edit: How do I remove the blank line above this line?)
  2. learn how to use this editior
  3. giving an example

How could I
  • Ignore the tools?
  • Demand for more?

But still, in this great age of science and technology, wishing for an easier editor isn't such a great wish.
But any way,
  • You solved my problem
  • Showed how ignorant I am

List is always surrounded by two empty lines. You mixed standard paragraph with a manually entered number with a list, so you have two lines starting with "1." and a line break between.

But any way,
  • You solved my problem
  • Showed how ignorant I am
You are welcome.

I think it would be fantastic if you could get a WYSIWIG editor, rather than having to preview the post to see what it looks like. But it would probably be enormously difficult to implement, and it might not even be compatible with the vBulletin system.

Ubuntu forums runs VBulletin and they have a WYSIWYG editor, although I don't think its great as you don't actually get a really good preview of it as the text book is obviously much smaller than a post.

If WYSIWIG is too hard to do, is something like what MathOverflow does feasible, i.e. a realtime previewer?
