I was wondering if someone would be willing to point me in the right direction on how to make this bbcode work correctly in my forums. I'm not asking someone to do it for me, I would like to learn on how to do these on my own.

this is what I'm trying to work out. The custom one at the bottom of that page.

I would like it be able to have it like this [swdb]{insert url here}[/swdb] when someone goes to use this function.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :D

anyone?

As far as I know, there's no way to get template variables into BBCodes. It's a cool idea, though (and I seem to recall somebody else asking about it recently).

Both details are already attached to each post when viewing it, so I conclude you want to so something redundant (which makes little sense). In theory, you could solve it with JS, but I'd need a precise example of what you want to achieve so I'm not starting at the wrong point.

I'm using a lightbox system for a custom image handling tag, i'd like to be able to either group images by author or post.

Lighbox has the option of putting a specific element in square brackets to identify the grouping. I don't want this to be something that users have to input themselves.

Does that help?

So you're already using JS. I did this once for Highslide.

However, to have the post ID and/or user ID available in a custom BBCode there is a rather q+d approach. Open /includes/bbcode.php and find:

Code: Select all

                    if (sizeof($str['search']))
                    { 
Before, add:

Code: Select all

                    /*** 2012-01-31 BEGIN AmigoJack
                        Provide post ID and user ID to custom BBCodes ***/
                    if( count( $str['search'] )&& count( $str['replace']== 1 ) ) $pType= 'str'; else
                    if( count( $preg['search'] )&& count( $preg['replace']== 1 ) ) $pType= 'preg'; else
                    $pType= '';

                    if( $pType ) {  // Custom BBCodes only have one replacement
                        global $row;  // Obviously this only works for viewtopic.php

                        ${$pType}['replace'][0]= str_replace
                        ( array
                            ( '{POST}'  // Hardcoded tokens to be used in the BBCode replacement
                            , '{USER}'  // You could add more, of course...
                            )
                        , array
                            ( isset( $row['post_id'] )? $row['post_id']: 0  // ...replaced with the current value
                            , isset( $row['user_id'] )? $row['user_id']: 0
                            )
                        , ${$pType}['replace'][0] 
                        );
                    }
                    /*** 2012-01-31 END ***/ 
That's it. Now you can create your custom BBCodes with the BBCode usage of anything, i.e.: [thispost][/thispost] and a HTML replacement which contains i.e. the text {POST}.

You can use the token {USER} in the same manner. Or use both in one replacement.

Tested.

I want to turn this code into a BBCode. Is something like this possible? I’ve tried doing it myself, but it won’t work. :\ It works fine when it's a normal HTML doc, but that's not what I want. Assistance with this is greatly appreciated!

That would only work once, so you can't have it multiple times in one post or multiple posts with that code on the same page. Also it's one of those functionalities which are suboptimal for being used as a custom BBCode only. Do you still want it?

Sure do! I plan on using it for admin topics anyway where it'll only be used once.

BBCode usage:

Code: Select all

[triptych]{TEXT1}|{TEXT2}|{TEXT3}|{TEXT4}|{TEXT5}|{TEXT6}[/triptych]
HTML replacement:

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript">
  document.write
  ( '<style type="text/css"> '
  + '.detail { float: left; display: none; } '
  + '#triggers div { cursor: pointer; float: left; padding: 5px 2px; border-right: 1px solid brown; border-left: 1px solid brown; } '
  + '<\/style>' );

  function reveal( det ) {
    if( !document.getElementsByClassName ) {
      document.getElementsByClassName= function( cn ) {
        cn= cn.replace( / +/g, ' ' ).split( ' ' );
        var ar= [], testname= function( n ) {
          for( var re, i= cn.length- 1; i> -1; --i ) {
            re= new RegExp( '(^|\W)'+ cn[i]+ '(\W|$)' );
            if( !re.test( n ) ) return false;
          }
          return true;
        }
        for( var d= document.all|| document.getElementsByTagName( '*' ), i= 0; i< d.length; ++i )
        if( testname( d[i].className ) ) ar[ar.length]= d[i];
        return ar;
      };
      document.getElementsByClassName.spoof= true;
    }
    for( var d= document.getElementsByClassName( 'detail' ), i= d.length- 1; i> -1; --i )
    d[i].style.display= 'none';
    document.getElementById( det ).style.display= 'block';
    if( document.getElementsByClassName.spoof )
    document.getElementsByClassName.spoof= document.getElementsByClassName= null;
  }
</script>
<div id="triggers" style="float: left; border: 1px solid #ccc">
  <div onclick="reveal('first');">{TEXT1}</div>
  <div onclick="reveal('second');">{TEXT2}</div>
  <div onclick="reveal('third');">{TEXT3}</div>
</div>
<div class="detail" style="color: blue" id="first">{TEXT4}</div>
<div class="detail" style="color: green" id="second">{TEXT5}</div>
<div class="detail" style="color: #a52a2a" id="third">{TEXT6}</div>
Tested it successfully using Opera 11.52 and this text in a post:

Code: Select all

[triptych]Show hint 1
(with linebreak)|Show hint 2|Show hint 3|First hint: it is above.|Second hint: sometimes it leaks.
(with linebreak [b]and bold[/b])|Third hint: Sometimes it burns.[/triptych]
Do you understand how it works? 6 parameters, separated by a pipe | character. First 3 parameters are the "button" captions, the other 3 parameters are the texts to appear for each "button".

Hey! I have a problem with my youtube BBcode. I accidentally deleted my youtube BBcode and so i had to create a new one. It's exactly the same as previous one. But the new BBcode doesn't work in all old posts. It works fine in new posts though.

Is there any other way than STK reparse BBcode?
