editmyprofile: more comfortable edit boxes, with formatting tools

Description

Some things to make editing one's profile more fun.

  • allow special syntax like mediawiki, bbcode, or a subset of html, eventually additional xml tags.
    • mediawiki or bbcode require special parsing engines to grab from somewhere, so it means nasty work.
    • html and xml can be parsed and modified using php tidy or php DOMDocument. So, this will come much cheaper.
  • wysiwyg editing (tinymce?) can be cool, but it can also become a major source of frustration, if not done right. I would prefer the more conservative syntax-based editing.
  • special syntax or tools to include smilies, and special icons in the profile text, expressing "I have a bike", "I have a dog", "my skype username is ..", etc.

For some of this we might need changes in the database (memberstrads table). If the text is written using wiki syntax, we have to store it with wiki syntax. Otherwise it will be troublesome trying to re-edit the same text.


This ticket is obviously connected to #508 (new "members" application based on Rox)

Main purpose is to unleash members' creativity :)

oh, what I totally forgot:

  • javascript-based edit buttons on top of the textarea. These buttons can appear when you focus the text cursor on a textarea, and disappear when the focus goes somewhere else.
