New BBCodes

Post by Feralidragon » Tue Feb 26, 2013 5:31 pm

I added 2 new BBCodes to the forum (in case you didn't notice yet):

ytplaylist: to be able to add youtube playlists instead of single videos.

spoiler: to be able to put things in spoilers, however spoilers inside spoilers ("spoilerception") is not working for now (due to a technical limitation of phpBB custom bbcodes).

Have fun :)

Heye :D

nice work Ferali :)

Much appreciated. Will be good for the Sounds Thread .. now we can setup 'theme specific' playlists for the soundz Thread ^_^

Re: Spoiler Mod Have used this one before also and I think for memory I modified it .. well the 'Spoiler' Text part anyways..

When I had forums running many moons ago , I particularly liked this mod (or one similar) ;
only thing to note is to NOT Ban by Username.. side from that it stopped those 'Viagra Affiliates' at the door.. and sent them straight to the 'Adious' Window.

^_^

another small modification that in future could be looked at , could be the fact that Links don't open in new window.. therefore one has to right-click open (as you know)

there are some possible work arounds to this and I vaguely remeber GoPo doing some Extensive DB 'Search and Replace' years ago to achieve the same thing..

Yes, put the one I put was using the BBCode admin part of the forum, which is fairly limited.
Once again, to implement a *proper* spoiler tag, Shade is needed since he is the one with the door keys.

We hadn't any problems with bots lately (only 1 appeared in months, and was quickly reported by GEx and dealt with in the same moment), I still appreciate the suggestion though.
But again: mods -> Shade.
I wouldn't trust that mod though, seems to be too messy for me (it came from someone would didn't know how to make mods and it's still in version 0.1 ... no thanks tbh).

Shade. That is all.
Actually, in Gopo's forum I was the one to fix it (not sure if you remember). I had to modify the url template code directly.
To open in a new tab or window, the only thing needed is to add the attribute target="_blank" to the anchors, and it will work, but once again, I can't modify jack at the files level.

re: Spammer blocker.. yer all it does is references stopforumspam.com and if the details are there , then block or redirect :D... I personally used to redirect them to 'some funny site'

very simple.

you given the keys could make a far superior mod easily... indeed.

just don't use 'username' as a form of blocking. ;) .. email and IP Address blocks virtually every spammer on the planet easily. And if it don't you could also implement a report spammer feature which could send the details back to stopforumspam.com and add them to th elist as well.

btw that was a quick google search , as I didn't think you would seriously consider it (seeming how clean the forums are)
here's recommended versions , well the one we used.. here; http://www.stopforumspam.com/contributions

they cater for all kinds of boards in fact which will be handy to some0ne I guess.
