WYSIWYG Editor for Paizo Message/Play-by-Post Forums
This editor provides a natural interface for creating posts for Paizo's messageboards, and includes support for the special styles used by the online campaign forums (aka, the "Play by Post" styles) such as OOC text and dice rolls†. While Paizo's syntax is very similar to BBCode, it has some quirks and extensions that can make it frustrating to work with. Enter your post here and format it as needed, then use the "view source" button to view and copy the resulting messageboard code. This can be pasted directly into the Paizo forum editor windows.
If you get some odd formatting that you can't clear (this happens sometimes with OOC text on Chrome), toggle between source and WYSIWYG view will generally clear it up.
Please report any bugs or issues to email@example.com. (Did you just try to copy & paste that? Sorry.)
†Die roll expressions are not evaluated.
Help and Info
These buttons are simple toggles or one-click actions:
These buttons will cause small popup windows because they require additional information (links, names, labels, and so on):
About the editor
To get the OOC text button to work as a natural toggle, I had to overload one of the default browser styles that the Paizo forums doesn't use. Weird problems call for creative solutions..
