Not sure how you have been doing it for over 10 years when phpBB 3.1/3.2 has only been out for four years
Many core changes could be transferred into 3.1 from earlier versions. Duh.

Re: Twitter bbcode - embed tweet for phpbb 3.0.12

Easy answer, don't modify core code.
That advice is too late for many of us who started modifying core over a decade ago. :|

Re: Firefox Quantum Addon for PhpBB codes?

Point taken. Thanks for the xpi for FF for bbCodeInsert, sent to me via email and added to FF without a problem. It works extremely well, and is shaping up as a worthy replacement for BBCodeXtra!

Re: Firefox Quantum Addon for PhpBB codes?

I have managed to Port bbCodeInsert to Firefox ...If anyone wants a copy, PM me. PM sent. If anyone is keen to update the far better BBCodeXtra for Firefox, please note the author said to me in email: From: Francesco <flod ~at~ lodolo ~dot~ net> Date: Sun, Nov 26, 2017 at 4:00 PM Subject: Re: BBCod...

Re: Firefox Quantum Addon for PhpBB codes?

I have been using BBCodeExtra , and I have a few dozen custom tags, both BBCode and HTML, but it does not work with FF 57+ (Quantum), so I am looking for a replacement. Anyone using something for newer versions of Mozilla that they like? I wasn't quite sure where to have it. I could not find a repl...

Re: Upgrade Word Censor to exclude URLs

I really don't have the time, Joshy, seriously. I have a ½ hour a day for computer stuff, that's it. I would if I could.

Re: Upgrade Word Censor to exclude URLs

Why did you post here then if you already knew there was a consensus? I learned that there is some sort of (IMO cockeyed) consensus in this thread. Isn't that obvious? Why post a feature request that you had no intention to support? I've started 2 threads on this topic, collated bug reports ... isn...

Re: Upgrade Word Censor to exclude URLs

Sorry but the consensus over time seems to be that the censor is just hunky dory and working as planned, so if that's true and the "400,000 members here or the tens of thousands of other phpBB users" (see above) are perfectly happy with it, I'll look after my own needs and leave it be. It takes me a...

Re: Upgrade Word Censor to exclude URLs

If anyone else would like to make the Pull Request, please do so. I'm a hacker and don't mind modifying renderer.php in my installs.

Re: Upgrade Word Censor to exclude URLs

Wow thanks Joshy! It looks almost too easy to modify /phpbb/textformatter/s9e/renderer.php $html = $this->renderer->render($xml); if (isset($this->censor) && $this->viewcensors) { $html = $this->censor->censorHtml($html, true); } So it's as simple as changing the line to $html = $this->censor->censo...

Re: Upgrade Word Censor to exclude URLs

The bottom line here is that most people use the Word Censor as a way of modifying or restricting text in posts. It is an unexpected "feature" that it also interferes with URLs. For many, it's an unwanted feature. I have about 100 word censors set up, and most are for readability purposes, for insta...

On a word by word basis?
That would entail a new column in the database per word

I'd be happy with a single switch that could be set, applying to all words simultaneously.

Re: Upgrade Word Censor to exclude URLs

Okay fine, here's another example. I have a word censor that converts lowercase "abc" to "ABC" (not the actual string, but you get the idea). It's a acronym. Now that actually does break links, I've spent a few hours today running jobs in phpmyadmin fixing it. It DOES happen. If the link contains fo...

Re: Upgrade Word Censor to exclude URLs

You mean when crap is censored on your board then I can circumvent it by just writing http://you.re/crap? Oh please, how many people would think of doing that? You're talking about a tiny, tiny minority. Whereas rephrasing URLs is rather easy: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/scr%61p is the same as h...
