html not converted to wysisyg mode on editing post
Whenever i open a post for editing the existing post html does not get converted into wysiwyg code, it stays as html but when adding text to the post it renders that text in wysiwyg mode.
this makes every thing hard to edit and hopefully this is just a bug somewhere and is easily fixed. :)
Due to limitations with the Android text field, we can't use the visual editor when you are editing an existing post. The reason is because the text field can't handle every HTML tag that exists. For example, if you had a '<video>' tag in your post and edited it in the app, the text field wouldn't recognize it and would be stripped it out. In order to protect your post content, we changed it to the HTML editor when editing a post.
Hopefully a future release of Android will add better html support for the text field.
Thanks for your answer.
Sad to say i feel that i have no use for this app as long as i cannot edit pages/posts in visual editor, this does not even work in the Android browser i have tested. :(
I'm no expert but couldn't we use a web browser control and just pass the post html content to it. The control could have the same java script normally used to provide the same front end that we use through the web front end.
We don't use a web browser control, it's a TextView. Maybe in the future we'll make it more web-based.
