The default message editor is boring, Here is a better one and with another plugin you will have Emoticons.
Here is screenshot!
All you have to do is go to template-message.php and replace the php themex user message line with the below code and it will replace the entire message editor box with the wordpress admin style wp-editor which is better. You can also do this for description section. WordPress by default supports smilies so this works out great. In order to customize the Wp-Editor and add the smilies option install WPEDIT Plugin. It Enables advanced features and plugins in TinyMCE, the visual editor in WordPress.
<?php wp_editor( @$event->description, ‘user_message’, array(
‘media_buttons’ => false,
‘textarea_name’ => ‘user_message’,
‘textarea_class’ => ‘wp-editor-area’,
‘quicktags’ => false,
) ); ?>
<?php _e(‘Send Message’, ‘lovestory’); ?>
<input type=”hidden” name=”user_recipient” value=”<?php echo get_query_var(‘message’); ?>” />
<input type=”hidden” name=”user_action” value=”add_message” />
<input type=”hidden” name=”nonce” value=”<?php echo wp_create_nonce(THEMEX_PREFIX.’nonce’); ?>” />
I would recommend you get the same plugins I have to make the site awesome.
Google XML Sitemaps,
Simple IP Ban,
User Login Log,
Some plugins such as User Login Log I installed in order to see if Romance Scammers are registering, they often register from West African countries and Login Log shows I.P. and all that good stuff.
The wp-editor message box supports colors and font sizes in addition to Emojicons but the font changes don’t display when message in sent and I am looking to find a fix for that now, will update this post when I do. Enjoy it.!
re-uploaded broken image screenshot.
http://themextemplates.com/forums/topic/tinymce-unblock-more-options/ will allow you to get more features but not the emoticons.
Accord to your message. I have followed the message to replace the ccode in template-message.php. it’s not work and I got this message:

Thanks for your reply. Now I can use the WPEDIT editor to send message.
However, the editor in the Profile page is still the basic one. Can I change the editor of Profile page, Blog Page as well?
