Advanced bbcodes no longer working Reply to topic

The strike tag is also fpro.

From what I've seen on my own upgrades, you shouldn't be having issues - I haven't experienced issues from upgrading a site containing forumspro.

First, fpro uses includes/fpbbcode.php.

Second, it also uses includes/javascript/fpbbcode.js

Third, as I recall, you need to upload to your theme, the images they provide in:
themes/default/images/bbcode
themes/default/images/forumspro

Agreed - the sooner we do away with fpro, the better all round - that was a key factor in developing forumsplus in the first place. When we move to DF v10, there will be further enhancements.

I appreciate that, Phoenix, but I'm not just looking to put in bbcodes for FPro.

I make use of bbcodes in the news articles, etc, so I want to make globally-available bbcodes.

From doing some searching, it would appear I need to make changes in:

“includes/nbbcode.php”
“includes/javascript/bbcode.js”
“languages/english/bbcode.php”

Does that sound about right?

This is simply for the activation of a bbcode so that it gets properly converted into HTML, not the buttons for them.

I cannot recommend anyone to amend bbcode because of potential security risks.

However, if you're going to do it, use something like winmerge to compare those files with the respective fpro files, and adjust the code, and image paths, accordingly.

No, our bbcode is still basic, there is an extended bbcode but I'm not sure if the spoiler tag is included or not, I think layingback could help you on this one.


jeremy, As Phoenix points out changes to nbbcode have to be with great care so as not to open up a security hole.

If you want to wander over to my site (url in sig) we can discuss some of these. I do have strikethrough in the extended nbbcode already, and you should be able to use it as a pattern to add spoiler if you have an HTML model from fpro. img r/l may be possible too - although img is the one we have to be super careful about.

Thanks, Layingback.

Part of the reason I want to fix this is that the upgrade essentially broke a ton of news articles / blog entries / forum posts - it's not just in ForumsPro, and it's not really feasible to go through and manually edit every place that it's broken. I'll mosey on over.

Not heard from you, but I have spoiler working now. Reason I didn't before is that all the implementations that I'd seen - not many I'll admit - had a clunky user interface for the reader, IMHO. But I've come up with one which looks really good to me.

Hidden text still occupies space, so visible text doesn't "jump" when the hidden stuff is unhidden. It's marked with a simple highlight in classic yellow highlighter. And you just need to roll your mouse over it to revert to visible text. Simple, clean.

Should be up on my site soon ...

So I'm curious ... I can't seem to do line breaks inside the table cells, <.br> (without the period, of course) will not work with the bracketed tags, and a hard return doesn't seem to work either ... is there a secret to this that I'm not getting?

If you are referring to my enhanced BBCode, then I can't think of any way to avoid this. I currently remove hard returns because it meant that you couldn't format the table codes when preparing the table - which made it very error prone.

But even if I allowed them, HTML placed all added line breaks before the start of the table anyway!

So no line breaks within tables unless someone can come up with a way ...

While its true that Forums Pro did have those files, they never actually got around to using them.

NBBCODE includes a strikethrough and works with current forums no trouble.
