    The buttons that are currently here aren't very user friendly. They only add the code tag. The URL button is the one I'd like to see changed, but the others could be changed as well. I've seen some boards have a popup box that is kind of like a wizard. After pressing the URL button it'll say "enter the text to be displayed" and you enter it; then the little popup will say "enter the URL address".

    I know that the format for the tags is displayed when you mouseover them, but a lot of people dont know or care to learn. For example, pressing the URL button allows for the actual address to be displayed and hyperlinked: If you want to hide the address and make some text have the hyperlink you'd type: I've also seen boards that have that mini-wizard popup for quotes. It'll ask "type the person who said the quote" and then it'll say "type the text" and it'll format the quote appropriately.

    Could you implement that without too much fuss?[/url][/quote]

    Do you realize you can highlight text in the edit window and hit the buttons?
