We’ve made some improvements to the forum by implementing markdown with BBCode and Emoji support. Oh yeah – EMOJIS!
Zistle now supports markdown in the forum. Markdown is a popular text to HTML tool that is used on many popular websites to help format text for web publishing. It allows some pretty sophisticated formatting options without requiring any HTML writing. However, It is completely OK if you are not that familiar with markdown or don’t want to spend time learning the syntax. Our text editor buttons will give you the shortcuts automatically and of course, plain text will work just fine.
We will also have BBCode support which is particularly helpful for inserting images into forum posts.
The text that you enter may look a little strange but there will be a preview space before your post so you can see what your post will look like.
Images will not display in the preview panel – so don’t worry if your image does not appear in the preview pane. It will appear in your post and look Oh So Awesome.
Since you can edit your posts on Zistle, if you have an issue or make a mistake, you can always edit it after publishing.
We’ve also added emoji support – because – well because why not?! Can anyone truly express themselves without these lovely little icons? Here is an Emoji Cheat Sheet for you to peruse while deciding what truly expresses your mood today.
