BBcode List: Custom Bullet for a Features List

Post by orynider » Sun Jul 29, 2018 5:55 pm

Creating an BBcode List with a custom bullet character.
For example to list your favorite colors you could use:
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Yellow
The question remains how to get the custom list’s with √ bullet for a features check BBcode list ?
  1. Red

assuming you are talking about your "features" page you can't use bbcode in a page's html. bbcode is only for use in posts.

if you want to create a normal html ordered list or unordered list and use different icons check this out:

No, I'm looking on a way to post a table or list of features for my projects in a customized or standard phpBB block and after in a phpBB post on forums when I install phpBB 3.2 with the CMS.

Now I'm upgrading the bbcode adding tables between "code" and "sniper/tables" a extension that allow us to insert a table block in a standard phpBB post.

So, I could re-use my first message from the page in construction when I open the forum, but I would have to replace "[√]" with "[*]" in the phpBB post.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

  • Red
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Blue

Code: Select all

[list=none]
√ [color=#FF0000]Red[/color]
√ [color=#0040FF]Blue[/color]
√ [color=#FFFF00]Yellow[/color]
[/list]
  • Red
    Blue
    Yellow
That's not the point, just a proof of an abstract concept.

You can use an Image as a List Item Marker, or whatever.

On a side note: using radic for a check list isn't so "nice", that's more a Math's stuff.
There are fa icons for this purpose which can be used, instead.

https://fontawesome.com/icons/square?style=regular
https://fontawesome.com/icons/check-squ ... le=regular
Or https://fontawesome.com/icons?d=gallery&q=check

BBcode usage:

Code: Select all

[fa]{IDENTIFIER}[/fa]
HTML replacement

Code: Select all

<i class="icon fa-{IDENTIFIER} fa-fw" aria-hidden="true"></i>
Usage:

Code: Select all

[list=none]
[fa]check-square[/fa] a
[fa]check-square[/fa] b
[fa]square[/fa] c
[/list]
Result:
