Easy way to add rich editing options to your bbpress forums with Bbpress post toolbar

In one of my recent projects where I am using “bbpress” to create forums, I wanted to bring about a rich editing experience for the end user. The default “bbpress” forum template is pretty simple (displayed below) with just about very basic editing features. Users who are fluent with HTML coding could benefit from some HTML tags, but you wouldn’t want to target your site for tech savvy users only. Hence arrives the need to include a toolbar where users can easily embed images, video, smileys and rich formatting options while posting in forums.
