Customize BBcodes from admin panel


(Maestro Magnifico) #1

Continuing the discussion from Add new BBcode button:

This plugin must be created, fellas! It’s not right that users can’t customize BBcodes from admin panel. For example, I want to add new BBcodes - strikeout text, underlined text and also second spoiler (old fashion) for hiding very long texts. The only way I can add them now is via JS.


ADD: Also videos from vk.com doesn’t embeds automatically. So I would like to add a BBcode for them.

strikeout
underline

underline
strikeout

<s>strikeout</s>
<u>underline</u>

[u]underline[/u]
[s]strikeout[/s]

This already works? So what’s the problem again?

I believe it’s about adding other “bbcodes” i.e.

But not wanting to write a Dialect plugin, would prefer an Admin UI that would do it.

No, we have no plans to allow custom BBCode, that doesn’t mean anything.

Did you test it at Iframely URL Debugger - Open Graph, Twitter Cards, oEmbed ? Does it support OpenGraph or oEmbed?

It shows “403 - error - Requested page error: 403” so I don’t think so.

Holy anabolics! Why didn’t you add buttons for those codes too? I had no idea they were there.

BBCode doesn’t work very well with Markdown. That said, we did build a BBCode plugin that enable most of the BBCode available in vBulletin.

I like Markdown method better, but unfortunately it have lack of functionality right now. Thanks for the plugin, gonna try it out.
