When submitting a BBCode to the database, please keep the following topics in mind:
Any BBCode that lowers the security of a user's board will not be approved. If the user receives a warning while creating the BBCode, it will not be accepted. Use the most restrictive tokens that you can without losing functionality.
Externally hosted scripts #
If you need to provide an external file, use the upload feature on the submission page.
Alternate versions #
There are times when multiple versions of a BBCode may be needed. For example, you could provide a BBCode that takes a YouTube video ID or the full URL. To indicate that you are submitting an alternate version, place the text "[ALT]" in the Revision Version field. These will be listed at the bottom of the contribution page in the Revisions section. You should indicate at the end of your contribution's description that multiple versions are available so that users know to look for them.
If you would like to submit an alternative version for an existing BBCode, please contact a Support Team member
to be added to the contribution's co-author's list so that you can submit it.
Prerequisite BBCodes #
If your BBCode requires helper BBCodes to be created (i.e. [tr] and [td] for tables), those BBCodes should be added as revisions with "[REQ]" listed in the Revision Version field. These should be listed at the bottom of the contribution's description as prerequisites for the BBCode to work.
Modifications to templates #
Empty Submissions #
Submissions made without any revisions will be deleted after 30 days.
By submitting the contribution, you agree to have your contribution released under the CC BY 3.0
with public performance attribution waived. Your contribution description should not mention any licensing restrictions contrary to this, nor should your contribution fail to work without attribution.
