[CDB] BBCode Enabled Profile Fields

Post by 3Di » Fri Dec 22, 2017 11:49 pm

Original Author: javiexin
Author: 3Di (inerhited)

Description: Adds the possibility to include BBCodes in profile fields of String or Text types.

Notes:
inspired by a MOD but code written from scratch... read more..
Unlike the MOD that was used in 3.0, this is activated individually for each field that it requires it, and also allows to decide if one field allows it and another does not, and if one only admits smilies, and another admits all kinds of extra data.

Version: 1.0.0-RC
Codename: Christmas Edition 2017

Download: CDB

Bug/Issues tracker: https://github.com/3D-I/pfbbcode/issues

Requires: phpBB >= 3.2.1 (support dropped for 3.1 due to the EOL)

Special greetings and thanks to Javier.

Re: [3.2][RC] BBCode Enabled Profile Fields

This extension complements the phpBB implementation of the profile fields of type string and text to allow BBCodes, smilies and URLs to be processed, if so configured.

The standard profile fields are replaced with these, maintaining compatibility at all times.

To activate the functionality, it is necessary to edit the configuration of each profile field
(ACP ->Users -> User Profile Fields)
and indicate if that field allows BBCodes or Smilies or URLs or a combo, your choice.

By default, everything is disabled, to maintain compatibility with the standard behaviour.

You can activate this in ALL fields of type text and type string, both existing ones (both originals like those that could have been created later) as in those that are created from this moment.
No data saved in any of these fields is lost.

Enable/Disable/Delete actions
  • - If, for whatever reason this extension is disabled, all fields will behave like fields standard, they will maintain their values but the BBCodes, smilies or URLs will NOT be processed.
  • - If it is activated again, the processing is recovered without changes.
  • - If the extension is deleted (delete data), the same thing happens:
    the fields remain as standard fields, WITHOUT processing BBCodes, smilies or URLs.
Additional note:
In the fields of type string and text you can put certain validations of character types allowed.
If BBCodes are used, they are replaced by spaces (except at the beginning and end of the field, which are eliminated) before validating, with what could happen that a field will no longer validate correctly if BBCodes are used.

It must be taken into account when selecting the type of validation.
The smilies and URLs are not deleted for validation, so the safest thing is not limit the type of characters allowed if you are going to activate Smilies and/or URLs.


Enough said.. :)

I installed this on my 3.2.2 test site and got nothing.
ACP/Users and groups/Custom profile fields shows Field identifications only. This page will activate or deactivate fields.
I do not see what you show in your image.

Got it. I didn't go far enough editing the Profile type specific options. Working great!

This MOD was very useful for us (many of our users have websites they can and frankly should promote for everyone's benefit). I am happy to see it has finally been rediscovered as an EXT. :)

Well, I am bound to submit this extension to the CDB as a tribute. :dove:

Since no issues have been noticed so far and also our private testing in the past didn't reveal glitches of any sort.

Our forum is a martial arts forum, so most of our users belong a martial arts club. Almost all martial arts clubs have websites. Back in the day, we had profile fields with BBCode allowed. Our users liked the fact they could promote their clubs in their profile fields with a link to their websites. Of course, this could be done with the signature, but profile fields are better for that purpose, and then signatures could be used for something else (in our case, something a little more personal usually). So, we are happy, thanks! :)
