Revisiting the CMS Feature Request thread lead me to wanting to make a few requests that I think could be implemented (hopefully easily) now.(1)
Either adding the tags below, or enabling HTML versions to apply to them the way that italics
somehow does.#1 - Div
This would make
[/pre] so much more useful.
For example, it would allow for pseudo-floatcenter via
to have a width property would almost make it tremendously useful. For example:
would make a pretty, centered, two-column signature.
Plus, if you think table-nesting is too complex/difficult to implement, combining div, table, and float would allow for pesudo-table-nesting.#2
or table with width
Because the current BBCode doesn't allow table-nesting, tables are almost useless for styling content. They're basically reduced to being tightly-crammed grids. Allowing the use of a width
modifier/style would give us a simple means of displaying our content in a more appealing way. Height
would be nice, too, but width
is more important for layouts - especially for signatures.
Though, if you gave us div
with a width property and nesting ability, those of us who really care about styling would be able to stack divs into what would be completely customizable table cells.(2)
Signature character limit
It's fine for people who use images or limited text, but adding descriptive text and BBCode is very difficult with the limit so low - and that's without even considering an attempt to create centered columns.
If you gave me just div
, and an increased signature character limit - without width or height or nesting properties - I'd be able to make some cool-looking, but simple, stuff.
