It might help if I really explain what I'm trying to do, in fact I'm trying to modify this Star Rating BBCode so people can post multiple ratings in the same post/page (with the code provided in the link collisions occur when there are more than one instance of the rating system in one page). It's not such a problem to modify the code there to put an ID (a specific path) to your ratings so they don't collide, however if someone then use the same exact path in another thread, ratings apply to both instances.

Here's my html replacement

Code: Select all

<div class="js-kit-rating" title="" starColor="Golden" path="/fof/{IDENTIFIER}" permalink=""></div><script src="http://js-kit.com/for/fretsonfire.net/ratings.js"></script>
What I'd like to have is something unique, not in control of the user between the "/fof/" and the {IDENTIFIER}

Thanks.
If you can't do it with just HTML, then you will need a MOD, not just a custom bbcode.

I have handyman's chat installed and want to allow users to chose a font color from a drop down menu with the colors shown. IS this possible and what bbcode would I use?

Thanks,

I am also using that chat and have requested what you are seeking. You should refer back to the thread for the AJAX chat box.

Thanks Andre for this BBCode!

I'm using phpBB v3.0.4, and have been struggling a bit with implementing it up to the point when I replaced all {URL} by {TEXT}. Now it shows the little window in the post instead of [stream]Linktofile[/stream]. But... when pressing the play button:

1. In IE7 it works like a charm.
2. In Firefox v3.0.10 it refuses to play.

I've checked both with mp3 and wmv formats. I find it strange because usually I've problems with IE not with Firefox...

Can you help me there, please?

Edit: Shame on me! :oops: I failed to change one instance of {URL} to {TEXT}, precisely the one in the Firefox section. Sorry for trouble caused!

Thanks!

I am trying to make a simple link BBcode but it uses a non http protocol. The link I want to achieve is tmtp://#join=servername. This link will take the user to a particular game server (if the user has the game installed).

I have tried
Usage: [join={TEXT}]{TEXT2}[/join]
HTML: <a href="tmtp://#join={TEXT}">{TEXT2}</a>

But this won't work. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thank you.
This code considers works well. I wanted to refresh this reply for those who will be looking to.

I was wondering if someone can help me with this BBCode. Been trying to work it out myself, but it just isn't coming out right.

I want a BBCode where a user types in:
[jumpto]5[/jumpto]

and that is automatically converted to a link that will take you to the 5th page of the same topic you are posting on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That would require a MOD.
There is no way for standard HTML to be able to include the correct topic number, or know how many posts per page the user has selected.

Hi,
I quickly walked the 134 pages of this topic :shock: .... but I have not found what I was looking for. :cry:

Is it possible to achieve a kind of spoiler that would display the first lines of content and that could display the entire height of the content when we press a button.
(code with or without js).

thanks
