Where can i get that ?
Like most BBCodes, if you don't care about text replacement, you can just put the HTML you're given in with nothing else.

For example:

BBCode Usage

Code: Select all

[ad][/ad]
HTML Replacement

Code: Select all

Whatever code Google gave you
It only gets complicated if you need to do text replacements.

Would anybody be able to help me create a bbcode for the HTML arrows? I want it to work as such:
When somebody types -->
Then I want the html arrow to show up: → is the html code, → is the name. How do I go about this?

that is not how bbcodes work. they don't just show up because you type something. you have to click a bbcode button to get a bbcode to display.

I can't figure out how you would get this to work unless you replace it with an arrow image when you click the arrow button but not replace it with the html code.

someone else may know how to do it.

As Lumpy said, BBCodes don't dynamically replace things as they're typed. However, you technically don't have to click a BBCode button; you can type the BBCode in directly.

You can create a BBCode to display an arrow as shown below:

BBCode Usage

Code: Select all

[arr][/arr]
HTML Replacement

Code: Select all

→
Using that will require more typing than "-->", though.

However, once you have that, you could conceivably write a JavaScript routine that automatically replaces "-->" with the ARR BBCode (or you could create a MOD to do it or possibly use an SQL update to change all instances of "-->").

I wouldn't recommend it, though, because if somebody was entering HTML or XML code and used a comment (<!-- Comment -->), the replacement would break the comment and therefore cause the code be wrong.

please be more specific. there are many different bbcodes on the first page and many of them have been updated/changed since that first page was created.

so, please explain exactly what type of bbcode you are trying to create and exactly how you are doing it.

thanks,
robert

Steve and Robert, thank you both for your reply. Using smileys made much more sense, so I made a small image of the left and right arrow and set them up as smileys using <-- and --> . Thanks for both of your thoughts, I appreciate it and it helped me along. :) Letting users use HTML code does not have my preference, so I like this solution.

glad you got it to work for you. just as a note....nobody can use html in phpbb posts. you can use bbcode, you can create a bbcode that uses html to produce the effect you want, but it is not the same as being able to actually post html in a post. that is the whole point of it.

That should be easy to do, but you'll need to post the spoiler code that you're using if you want help changing it.

Did you use Search this topic to search for "Table"? That should return some table BBCodes, including this Table BBCode. (Make sure that you read the following posts, though.)

HELLO EVERYBODY,


Firstly im not 100% this post will be in the right area,
so if it is, would a mod please move to the correct location.

I have flv player on my site,
and i can play local videos ( that i ftp to a folder in the root )

BUT...... due to my host being a tad tight on the size allowed ( 10gb )
i need more space,

so.....

rather than having everything on youtube and pointing links to it ( easy peasy )
or having them uploaded to the server ( easy peasy )
how would i go about pointing it to my home pc



example:

(bk9lkNgt7zs) << in youtube brackets ( working )
mysite.com/vids/test1.flv << that is current on local machine to host (working )

how would i go about pointing the player to play the file on my home pc at the address below?

if my home ip address is 44.44.44.444
and my vid was stored at c:/vids/test1.flv

what would i theoretically need to do to point the player to play the file from my home pc instead of my server hosts?

would it be something like

44.44.44.444/c:/vids/test1.flv ? or would it be something far more difficult? and what would the security risks be? as in would it need just one port specified or many ports?


any help or guidance would be apprieciated

if this is in the wrong place, could a mod please move please thank you
i put here as the flv uses bbcode, and i didnt think its technically a mod as its bbcode,
nor is it a style issue or an issue specifically related to phpbb or mod request.
