Description

1) it is a vector for image-based spam which could tank the server.
2) it will lead to disastrously broken pages as inexperienced users abuse the power of RTE
3) it is a usability issue as the increased height of the RTE input pushes the published comments too far down the page - we need to see the comment form and some comments above the fold.

Sorry , Ned

I couldn't figure out how to make this change. I'll unassign myself while i get my local server running again in case anyone else wants to pick this one up.

Thoughts:

I have never used the wysywig api module with any editor so i don't know how well it works normally but i do know that when you install just the fckeditor module with the fckeditor you are able to configure which content types  can use the editor but i can't recall if that is done on the edit content type page or on the fckeditor administrator page i believe it is the latter   

Best, Paul

... I have updated the text editor site wide so that the default for users is a plain textarea that accepts "filtered html". 

Only << admin, Devel Access, Group Admin, Group Officer, Project Member >> have the the right to switch to a RTE with full HTML.

This affects all content, form comments to blog posts to project descriptions etc.
