Parsing bbcode

Post by keiths » Wed Apr 09, 2008 7:03 pm

I am writing a page outside of phpbb but it uses all of the functions of phpbb. I want to be able to use all of the bbcode functions. I am doing the following:

generate_text_for_storage($r['comment'], $uid, $bitfield, $options, true, true, true);
$pagetext = generate_text_for_display($r['comment'], $uid, $bitfield, $options);

This will give me access to bold, italic, etc. bbcode however the quote bbcode doesn't work. Does quote need to be done a different way?

Thanks

That probably means the bitfield is incorrect. Try an echo ($bitfield); in between teh function calls and see what that give you.

I'll check it out. I'm not sure how the bitfield works. What should it be?

bitfield is set to nothing in between the function calls.

Also I declare

$uid = $bitfield = $options = '';

Above the function calls.

I could be wrong (usually am), but I think you need to include some CSS into your page as well for the quote bbcode to show properly.

Sorry I can't be more specific - was trying this a while back so speaking from memory.

Now that you mention it, when i just use [quote][/quote] it displayed weird. I will check and see if I need any additional bbcode for it.

However when I type [quote="keiths"] it just displays the text.

Looking again at my old code, I think you need some CSS from \styles\prosilver\theme\content.css
Look for

Code: Select all

/* BB Code styles
in there.

(if you use other styles, you would need to check what one your User is using)
