First things first, the enable BBC code link should probably default to showing the editing tools for writing a post.
Next, I was testing the editing tools over in the nifty stuff thread and ran across a few bugs. I'll try quoting the post here with all the bbc code so you can see what I was doing. The bug is that if you use multiple bbc codes for formatting the content of a post, they start to nest amongst themselves after awhile. For instance, when I was trying to create the image link it kept bouncing up to where the bbc code for code display was already set. I finally had to enter it manually. The bold, italic, underlining and quote buttons all worked as expected. The problem started with the others after it so perhaps they just haven't yet had the wrinkles ironed out yet because they are the less frequently used ones.
Had the problems with the code, img, url, and font size button. Had to try several times before the cursor stopped jumping up to the previously entered bracket to insert the code. Sometimes giving a few line returns made it work, sometimes it bounced up to the previous bracket anyway.
I like that we still have all the nifty old tools for writing a post, such as

Hmm, there seems to be a [img]http://www.wireframedesign.co.uk/one/piccys/sitepixs/bug.jpg[/img]with the editing buttons. I'll report on it in detail[url=http://able2know.org/topic/120918-1] here [/url]over in the Bug thread.
The bug is getting more aggressive so can't continue testing the coolness of the old editing buttons on the new site. Heading over to report on it.
