For everyone looking for a spoiler code, this is what I use.

BBCode

Code: Select all

[button={TEXT1}]{TEXT2}[/button]
HTML Replacement

Code: Select all

<div class="quotetitle"><input type="button" value="{TEXT1}" style="font-size:11px;margin:0px;padding:0px;" onclick="if (this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display != '') { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = '';        this.innerText = ''; this.value = 'Hide'; } else { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = 'none'; this.innerText = ''; this.value = '{TEXT1}'; }" /></div><div class="quotecontent"><div style="display: none;">{TEXT2}</div></div>
Example

Code: Select all

[button={TEXT1}]{TEXT2}[/button]
It can be seen working here: http://www.cliptheapex.com/forum/viewto ... =128#p1635

Try this:
ACP-Posting-BBCodes- Add a new BBcode

BBCode Usage:

Code: Select all

[sputnik7]{TEXT}[/sputnik7]
HTML replacement:

Code: Select all

<embed src="http://sputnik7.com/v/{TEXT}" width="430" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true"></embed>
and use it like this in your posts:

Code: Select all

[sputnik7]3666[/sputnik7]
where 3666 is the numeric video id from the url of the video page, like:
http ://sputnik7.com/file/3666-artifex-build-an-elephant-for-nissan.html

wow that was fast and works like a charm!

one more question though... i would for the video to be centered once they are posted with their bbcode, currently i use [center][/center] code to center my videos, any way to add this to the bbcodes such as the one for sputnik?

this is probably getting to be boring for everyone to see me post one time after the other but i just realized i would like to post sputnik videos using the whole address instead of just the number since the search in that site is really bad and i were to need the url again. What modifications do i have to make to the code for it to work?

I found this spoilerblkout here and I love it but it's got one problem the blackout overlaps the text.
Can someone correct this if possible 8-)

example:
Image


Code: Select all

[spoilerblkout]{TEXT}[/spoilerblkout]

<strong>spoiler:</strong><br /><br /><span style="padding: 11px; background-color: black; font-size: 0.8em; color: black;" onmouseover='javascript:this.style.color="white";' onmouseout='javascript:this.style.color="black";' bgcolor="black">{TEXT}</span>

[spoilerblkout]Your text goes here double line space[/spoilerblkout]

Thanks a Million

A frequent problem with these Javascript codes is that they only work once in a post or topic. All subsequent instances fail. Anyone know why that is or how to fix it?

Code: Select all

[colortext]{TEXT}[/colortext]

Code: 
<script type="text/javascript">
function cfc() {
x=0; y=0; color= "#";
while (x<6) {
y= Math.round(Math.random()*15).toString(16);
color = color + y; x= x+1; }
document.getElementById("a").color = color; 
t=setTimeout("cfc()",300);}
</script>
<font id="a">{TEXT}</font>
<script type="text/javascript">window.onload = cfc();</script>

Thanks :)

I can't see an easy way to do that because the url for the embedded player is different format to the url for the full pageitself,

full page url:

Code: Select all

http://sputnik7.com/file/3666-artifex-build-an-elephant-for-nissan.html
source for the embedded video:

Code: Select all

http://sputnik7.com/v/3666

But hey, guess what - you don't need to do it anyway - because once you have embedded a video in a post with the existing code, the little grey Sputnik logo on the player is a "link" to the full video page. ;)

That one fails because getElementById only finds the first instance of the font id on the page.

You can use getElementsByTagName to get an array, and then loop through it to catch multiples.

This worked when I tested it:

HTML Replacement

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript">
function cfc() 
{
x=0; y=0; color= "#";
while (x<6) 
{
    y= Math.round(Math.random()*15).toString(16);
    color = color + y; x= x+1; 
}

var el=document.getElementsByTagName('span');

for (i=0;i<el.length;i++)
{
    if (el[i].className == "multicolor")
    {
        el[i].style.color = color;
    }
}

t=setTimeout("cfc()",300);
}
</script>
<span class="multicolor">{TEXT}</span>
<script type="text/javascript">window.onload = cfc();</script>

Embedding videos hosted on your website

Here's the other Spoiler HTML Replacement code which I also like it:

Code: Select all

<div style="padding: 3px; background-color: #FFFFFF; border: 1px solid #d8d8d8; font-size: 1em;"><div style="text-transform: uppercase; border-bottom: 1px solid #CCCCCC; margin-bottom: 3px; font-size: 0.8em; font-weight: bold; display: block;"><span onClick="if (this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display != '') {  this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = ''; this.innerHTML = '<b>Spoiler: </b><a href=\'#\' onClick=\'return false;\'>Hide</a>'; } else { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = 'none'; this.innerHTML = '<b>Spoiler: </b><a href=\'#\' onClick=\'return false;\'>Show</a>'; }" /><b>Spoiler: </b><a href="#" onClick="return false;">show</a></span></div><div class="quotecontent"><div style="display: none;">{TEXT}</div></div></div>
And what about the GameTrailers videos? :)

http://www.gametrailers.com/player/38016.html

We might use the ID (38016) on the BBCode. Is it possible? I saw these working on vbulletin last week.

BBcode

Code: Select all

[gametrailers]{TEXT}[/gametrailers]
HTML Replacement

Code: Select all

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"  codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" id="gtembed" width="480" height="392">	<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" /> 	<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="movie" value="http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid={TEXT}"/> <param name="quality" value="high" /> <embed src="http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid={TEXT}" swLiveConnect="true" name="gtembed" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="true" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="392"></embed> </object>
Use like

Code: Select all

[gametrailers]38016[/gametrailers]
Really these video BBcodes are all the same and very easy to do - you just copy the Embed code they give on the website, find the unique ID and replace it with a {TEXT} variable - sometimes in more than one place like this one :)

The previous one with getElementsByTagName was more fun to work out. :mrgreen:

Ok, on this occasion the ID is a bit harder to find (and a bit longer) .

You have to click the "Share" Link on the site, then look at the Embed code for the relevant stuff after player?id=:

But the principle I alluded to a couple of posts ago still is true - find the Embed code, replace the ID with a text variable :)

BBcode

Code: Select all

[videojug]{TEXT1}[/videojug]
HTML Replacement:

Code: Select all

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" id="vjplayer07082008" width="400" height="345" align="middle" allowFullScreen="true"><param name="movie" value="http://www.videojug.com/film/player?id={TEXT}" /><PARAM value="true" name="allowFullScreen" /><PARAM value="always" name="allowScriptAccess" /><embed src="http://www.videojug.com/film/player?id={TEXT}" quality="high" width="400" height="345" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object><br />
