[ABD] Disable colours

Post by CorporateGoth » Sat Apr 04, 2015 4:41 am

Extension Name: Disable Colours
Author: CorporateGoth

Extension Description: Disables the [COLOR] tag.
Extension Version: 0.1

  • Configuration is global (in the Post Settings).
  • Makes it as if the [COLOR] tag does not exist (ie. doesn't even try to parse it).
Development Repository: https://github.com/corporategoth/disable_colours

Installation: Plugin goes under prez/disable_colours

Missing Features/Not Tested:
  • I have not tested to see if phpBB omits [color] from the standard list of bbcodes on post screens.
  • Theoretically this could be implemented more like the [FLASH] options, where you have 3 levels of disabling it (one globally, one at a per-forum level, and one my user permissions).
  • I did not opt for this method, because doing so essentially gives the user a 'you are not allowed to use [color]' error instead of just not parsing it.
  • Theoretically this code could be expanded to remove any built-in bbcode, however I just wanted something simple that worked :)
I found on my board that if you give people an inch, they take a mile. My forums have a specific aesthetic, so we don't allow users the option to put random colours in their posts. I did this in 3.0.x by manually editing the phpBB code.
