Is such an extension the easiest possible to do or is it not so easy to do at all?
One text editing form with permission for BBcodes. The text read from the table in the database would have to be converted to html and displayed in the right place.
Simple theory as always, unfortunately, the execution is not easy for me :(
I still have plans to start learning this.
Regards

I have no idea of the degree of difficulty. You can request an extension in the Extension requests forum, but as yours is the first time I have ever seen this feature mentioned, I don't know whether someone will be willing to do it.

I would like the links to be where I pointed.

I think that would meet the requirements of GDPR.

The support forums are for assistance with the vanilla phpBB product, extensions and style support are in the relevant forums for extensions and styles.

Of course, Mick. I created a thread about the extension here viewtopic.php?f=496&t=2465066
Since this can not be obtained by the usual configuration, please close this thread.
Thanks

Ok thanks, just note that phpBB uses topics not threads.
