FS#2085 - Enabling Color Coding options in CKEDITOR


So I figured out that there are no color coding options (to set text color and background color) for text in the CKEDITOR. I did some changes to CKEDITOR to add those, however, once I submit the text, it does not retain the changes.

Is there a particular reason why these are not enabled in the first place?

I am thinking it would be good add these, so that we can make the important text pop-out to the users.

I think this is left out for a good reason.

I even think the current CKEditor config in Flyspay is too much bloat and distracts the normal user from finishing reporting tasks. (they start playing with the formatting options to make it look like they like it instead on focussing on content. I know this from a CMS that uses similiar htmleditors and the resulting HTML sourcecode is horrible when average people use it.)

How a 'important text pop-out' looks should be the job of the CSS. So it is consistent for the whole flyspray installation. The coming Flyspray versions make it even easier to setup custom css stylesheets.

The current CKEditor in Flyspray is quite standard CKEditor setup. There could indead be some work done to integrate it better into Flyspray layout and workflow, e.g. the styles of Flyspray inside the CKEditor so editing looks exact like viewing the task in Flyspray. (like the 'Preview'-button in the dokuwiki-plugin)
