Description

Hi Ray,

Multiple people on the NYCDH site have posted messages on group forums that contain lots of gobbled markup -- they've obviously copied from a microsoft word file and pasted into the default visual editor one sees on the forum posting space.

I have two questions:

1. Is there a way to force the Text editor instead of Visual Editor as default?
2. If so, can we set that up for NYCDH?

I'd propose, too, that we look at creating an option like this for all CBOX sites, but please let me know what you think of this here and then we can talk about abstracting for CBOX. Many thanks.

Best,

Matt

bbPress actually disabled the visual editor, but for CBOX, we re-enabled it. See:
https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/commons-in-a-box/issues/76

There currently isn't an option in CBOX to toggle this, so for now, I wrote a quick code snippet to disable the visual editor for bbPress. It's active on NYCDH.
