Pasting styled text into the forum text editor boxes

Recommended Posts

I had to disable (for now) the ability to paste raw formats into the text editor box.  Members were unknowingly copying and pasting DIV, CSS, HTML, and other formatting elements into the message box and it was manipulating the rest of the page.  For instance, one person copied an e-mail or a post to their clipboard, and pasted it into the box.  The forum treated his post like a copy of the post he just copied and it looked very odd.

I really liked the ability to just be able to copy and paste formats, but there was a hidden downside that I'm trying to mitigate.  Hopefully we can turn this back on when we figure out a control for it.
