Re wrote a BBcode now its not working

Post by Nooby_Mad_Doc » Sat Apr 03, 2010 10:13 am

Hi, i know this might be a simple problem still i am not able to figure it out.

For long time i was using a simple BBcode for youtube. the bbcode text for which was[youtube]{text}[/youtube]

today i experimented with some customized html replacement under the tag [youtube1]{text}[/youtube1] it seemed to be working and the next thing i did was prolly the most stupid thing i guess. i deleted the original [youtube] thingy and edite the new [youtube1] thing to [youtube]

now the codes are not working, i wonder why. in preview post i can clearly see them work, but after i submit it doesnt work, why does this happen? All the old post with youtube code appears just a text now. :(

fresh posts i edit appears to work, its the old ones which even if i edit doesnt seem to work

Thank you for the help
With Regards

Old posts won't work because the BBCode in them won't be correctly flagged in the database, all the posts need to be processed again.

I'd suggest taking a look at the Support Tool Kit, it has a tool for just that job (Reparse BBCode)
