Ctrl Copy pulls Source BBCode

Post by Fischmaster »

Hi all, sorry if this is the wrong forum but I wasn't sure where it fits.

Is there a setting that allows you to copy a reply without using quote/edit?

for example:

Image

I mark and Ctrl+C the image and instead of having "image" in the clipboard I have the following code clipped:

[img]https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bd/Test.svg[/img]

Thanks a lot.

No. The source bbcode does not exist in the webpage. How would your webbrowser copy it?

Maybe Source Code is the wrong wording, I mean the content of the post, which I can see if I quote it etc.

I know phpBB boards where this works - Example: (removed)

I can mark the jersey and I have the following in my clipboard:

[img]https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/606064106403004416/1053018878428581918/ast_minimaillot.png[/img]

Whereas if I mark and Copy the image in my OP I jsut have "Image"

I see. That board has an extension that is putting the bbcode text into the image's "Alt" tag.

Thanks again for the pointer - loving how even as a beginner I am able to host a Forum and learn a bunch of stuff along the way.

And this is how I solved it, in case anybody finds this topic in the future:

Using my custom style I go to /template/bbcode.html

Line 76 - I changed it to the following:
<!-- BEGIN img --><img src="{URL}" class="postimage" alt="[img]{URL}[/img]" /><!-- END img -->

Now we can quickly copy+paste images as the alt-text to the clipboard is the img BBCode.
A great small QoL improvement for our closed RP community :)
