Feedback on our Cblogs Editor?


Hey beautiful cbloggers,

On Iron Paladin's post I noticed a few requests to improve our Cblog editor, and wanted to better understand what the bugs and requests were. I was actually surprised that most people didn't love the changes, as I licensed what appears to be one of the better software packages available to try to improve the site. Maybe we're missing some plug-ins you like or something? Please let me know.

The software we use is called REDACTOR. Here's the full web site about the blog editor we use with all of the available plugins.


One of the features people have requested for a long time is the ability to have editor save a background draft so that data loss becomes less likely. We're going to try to get this one done next.

If you're experiencing any bugs when editing blogs please let us know how to replicate it. Thanks!

2016 Update

Next year we're rolling out a completely updated CSS framework for the site which addresses most of the Quickpost weird formatting issues, makes it easier to browse and follow cblogs, and other fixes for Marshmellow and iOS 9.1. I'll post a separate beta link once we're closer to launch so you can kick the tires.

- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Niero Gonzalezone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I keep Destructoid weird. Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage, look:

(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache

My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:

I live in Japan sometimes.

Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:

My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it. When I founded this site in 2006 everybody told me there were already too many gaming websites and it would never happen for me. I ended up selling the site to Enthusiast Gaming and now I help run the biggest gaming convention in Toronto, and continue to work on this site, which reaches millions a month. Basically fuck whatever people think - work hard everyday and don't take no for an answer.

The most important lesson I learned as an adult is that everybody's faking it at their job - and faking it better than everyone else is who gets the job. Also, be nice.
