ABBC3.1 replaces phpBB3's BBCode buttons with icons in a beautiful and customizable toolbar. ABBC3.1 also adds many new and useful custom BBCodes giving users more ways to customize their posts, including BBvideo (auto-embed videos from dozens of media sites using just the url). Custom BBCodes can be arranged and sorted in any order and can be assigned to specific group-use only.
ABBC3 was a popular MOD for phpBB 3.0. Due to the changes in the new Extensions system for phpBB 3.1, ABBC3 will be significantly changed. It can not be ported over from 3.0 to 3.1. ABBC3.1 will be re-focused on providing a professional looking BBCode toolbar along with a suite of useful custom BBCodes. The following is a list of what is changing.
- Customizable icon-based BBCode toolbar.
- Custom BBCodes support icons if a GIF is available, otherwise it will display as text.
- Custom BBCodes can be sorted in the order you prefer.
- Custom BBCode group permissions.
- Custom BBCodes (these will be installed by ABBC3.1, or converted from ABBC3.0):
[plain]Remove BBCode tags from selection
[align]Right, Center, Left, Justify Align
[float]Left, Right Float
[marquee]Scrolling Marquee effect
[hidden]Hide content from unregistered guests
[offtopic]Off Topic message
[nfo]NFO / ASCII art
[youtube]YouTube video (old)
[BBvideo]BBvideo (Embed video from over 50 sites)
- Embed video site URLs in your posts with BBvideo, supported video sharing sites:

- SoundCloud BBCode
- BBvideo adds support for Vine videos
- Everything is re-written. All the bloat and legacy stuff is being removed. ABBC3.1 is going to be more efficient and optimized.
- Removed BBCodes:
- These could not be converted because they are malformed BBCodes or require hacking to work:
[click], Rainbow text
- These have been deprecated because they do not work or were replaced by newer BBCodes:
- BBCode posting page assignments.
- Image Resizers. Really, what does image resizing have to do with BBCode buttons? Although ABBC3.0 had a very nice image resizing feature, we're gonna leave this up to somebody else to build a dedicated image resizer extension.
- phpBB 3.1.0-RC2 or higher
- PHP 5.3.3 or higher
- Download the latest release and unzip it.
- Copy the entire contents from the unzipped folder to
- Navigate in the ACP to Customise -> Manage extensions.
- Find Advanced BBCode Box under "Disabled Extensions" and click Enable.
Default BBCodes on the top bar, with added Copy, Paste and Remove BBCode buttons (these can not be custom sorted).
Custom BBCodes on the bottom, can be custom sorted and assigned to special group-only access if needed. If a GIF is found, it will be used as an icon, otherwise, it will fallback to text (i.e.: center).
Important: This Extension can only be installed on phpBB 3.1. Do NOT use this on a live board. It should only be installed for testing purposes or just to check it out. No support will be provided.
