Not a huge fan of it right now. I got a first draft checked in.
but I feel like its not adding much. But then again it is suppose to be an "empty" template

@sayedihashimi was working on that. I'm not sure if he got it working or not..I got the update frequency switched over to radio buttons but came across a bug in the code where it's either not loading the correct value from the file or its saving the wrong value
I've been working on another project this evening..trying to get some bugs worked out with the Bootstrap WYSIWYG editor for the MiniBlog project

Sounds like fun. Bug hunting is always exciting.

Well I've always wanted to make a WYSIWYG editor so I figured a good way to start out would to debug someone elses. :smile:
I'll probably bug hunt the SideWaffle issue tomorrow or Thursday

That is normally a good place to start learning something. I tend to avoid WYSIWYG's though. Use TinyMCE every now and then, but for the most part I prefer something like Ace

I'm not familiar with Ace.

I'm sure you've seen it. GitHub uses it. http://ace.c9.io/#nav=about

I've never used TinyMCE before but I had a friend refer me to it. He swears by it. I'm really liking this Boostrap WYSIWYG..entire thing is less than 350 lines of code

My problem with WYSIWYGs isn't so much with the WYSIWYG itself but how many calls they cause me when people who do not know html try to use them. If I put an Ace editor in than they at least have to try to learn.

I wouldn't know about that. I've never made a site for anyone besides myself.

That's when the true joy of web development comes in to play. All my sites would be perfect if I was the only one that used them. :smile:
