As noted in another ticket: I don't think there is an easy way for members to go back and forth on the wiki from the WYSIWYG to the plain-text editor. That setting used to be available by viewing one's profile settings for MediaWikil, but we removed it because it was potentially confusing for people to see separate account settings for the wiki, in addition to their WP/BP profiles.

If I remember correctly, there is a "Disable Rich Text Editor" link underneath the WYSIWYG editor, but once it is removed, there is no easy way to turn it back on. We should offer members an easy way to toggle the editor on and off.

Where do you think it should go? On the Profile > Settings page?

(of BuddyPress I mean)

Most importantly, I'd say that it should appear above, below, or next to the FCKEditor. I'd probably just keep it in the place where the Disable option appears if you have Rich text enabled (see screenshot). We just need an "Enable Rich Text Editor" option to appear, too, when FCK is turned off.

It might make sense to also have it appear as on option on the profile settings page, but that's just gravy.

  • Target version set to 1.1

I'll set this to 1.1 since it's probably fairly important.

Sounds good. Thanks.

  • Priority name changed from Normal to Low
  • Target version changed from 1.1 to 1.2

I messed with this for about three hours for the last week and I can't figure it out so I'm setting it aside.

There is a remember-my-choice admin flag but it seems to be broken. I tried writing my own script to save this setting in a cookie - saving it is easy, but I can't get it to load right when the page is refreshed.
