[3.3][RC] BBCode Icons

Post by danieltj »

Extension Name: BBCode Icons
Author: danieltj

Extension Description: Add a Font Awesome icon to your custom BBCode buttons.

Features:
  • Specify a Font Awesome icon to be displayed on your custom BBCode buttons.
Extension Version: 1.0.0 (RC)

Screenshots:

Requirements:
  • phpBB >= 3.3.x and < 4.0.0
  • php 7.x or later
Download: GitHub

Note:
  • This extension allows you to use the feature included in this pull request here on your 3.3 forum now. The BBCode font icon might land in a future phpBB version (4.0 at the earliest) but you can make use of this feature now by using this extension. Please report all bugs you find through GitHub.
  • This extension no longer requires active development and is considered feature complete. Future updates will only be made to ensure compatibility with future 3.3 versions of phpBB. Hopefully, this feature will become part of the phpBB core code in version 4.0.0 making this extension obsolete.

This is very cool addition. I will start recommending this extension for one of my styles once the extension gets approved to the CDB :D

I'm working on a more elegant solution to hiding the default custom BBCodes but for now the extension is fully working and no longer has duplicate custom BBCodes displayed on the posting page.

I've released the latest (and hopefully final) version of BBCode Icons... v0.3.0.

As the extension is pretty small and has one very specific goal, this extension is now considered feature complete so hopefully at some point it'll land in a future version of phpBB. You can track the progress of that in this pull request here: https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/pull/6657

Also the tracker ticket for this feature can be found here: https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB-17326

Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

I've decided to submit the extension to the customisation database and as such have released a new version: 1.0.0. The latest version fixes a critical bug in which the custom BBCode tags were not properly set causing all custom BBCodes to insert undefined into the text editor when clicking on a custom BBCode button. This has now been fixed and the extension works as intended.

This looks very nice.
I tested the version 1.0.0 a bit and it seems it doesn't like the Advanced BBCode Box. When I enable BBCode Icons extension, BBCodes from editor disappear. They appear when I disable Advanced BBCode Box (with red text) or BBCode Icons.
You wrote that it is feature complete, but it would be really nice if admins can see preview of icons on the table with BBCodes.
And last thing, it would be nice (and easier to install) if it's packed in danieltj/bbcodeicons folders.

This extension will never be compatible with the Advanced BBCode Box because I had to remove the default template block which displays the custom BBCodes in order to insert an icon. The template file for prosilver doesn't have any events that I can use in order to edit the contents of the button to display the icon. I could have written some messy JavaScript to alter the text but I wanted to save a headache... :P

That's not possible because there aren't any template events in that file to allow me to display additional HTML.

And last thing, it would be nice (and easier to install) if it's packed in danieltj/bbcodeicons folders.
Do you mean when you download it from GitHub? That's sort of a limitation of using GitHub releases as it uses the repository name and then appends the version number to the end of it. I could change the repository name to bbcodeicons which I am very tempted to do but it still wouldn't allow me to ensure that the extension is bundled with my vendor name first and then the extension contents inside it unfortunately. If you download it from GitHub, you'll have to change the folder names. That is described in the installation instructions in the README.md file.

Downloading it from the customisation database (when / if it gets approved) would address this though as it's bundled correctly to immediately start using.

I don't use GitHub myself, so I didn't know it. It's great if it will be in the folders, when it will be approved.
