and not calling the BBCode parser, well, it's just much easier to not call it.

Ah, OK. Thanks for clearing that up. I'm actually pulling content from my board for another part of the site as well. I'm using a tweaked phpbb_fetch_all for it, and it really was rather straightforward. If that's the only advantage you can come up with, you'll have to do better than that to convince me ;)

well I don't give a damn if I convince you. I have more important things to worry about than wether or not I can convince some shmuck that HTML support can be useful.

well that was rather offense.

He's just conversing with you - no need to start name-calling.

well you can not set up your own bbcode so set up a bbcode to do what html can do well i think you can do that i hope so.

With the flash BBCode, users have choice to show (or not) Flash animations in the posts. Have a look to your UCP.



Intersting. In phpBB2 I have a lot of embedded movies (Google Video, Youtube, Avi, Wmv, Quicktime), I used a MOD with HTML bbcodes. To transform in Flash bbcode I would have to edit them manually. I'm not afraid if that is necessary. But I just liked to know 3 things:

1) How would I put for my members Flash display by default to "On"
2) Could I convert my html bbcode so that at least it would work before I edit all my posts ?
3) I tried it on Firefox 2.0 works fine but on IE7 even though I have a display flash to "on", IE7 still don't want to display it and leaves it as a link... :(

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Wow... old topic.

Well, unfortunately, there is no "default" option that you can turn on or off in the ACP for your users... about the only way to do it would be to run a quick Query that would turn everyone's Flash to ON.

You can also set the default options to have flash set to "ON" as well (in phpMyAdmin)

2: Probably, depending on what format you have...
All you need is to convert it to: [flash=<width>,<height>]<url path>[/flash] format.

3: Perhaps you were not logged in (viewing as a guest), or logged in as a User which did not have Flash preferences turned on. It should work in all browsers that support Flash (IE and FF certainly do)

Thanks Highway of Life, you defintely are taking good care of me ;)

1) Yep I'll probably use phpmyadmin to do that then ;) that means flash will be on for guests too ?
2) Yes that is what I had in mind, I made it work already
3) You are right I was not logged in on IE :oops:
4) About the html bbcode (which authorize the use of html), do you have any idea how I could implement it (that means that I wouldn't have to manually edit ALL the posts of the forum, meanwhile I start using the new technique)...

Thanks again ;)

You are welcome. :)

I don't think you should have to edit all the posts... but I don't know what format it's in... you should just be able to create a quick script that will convert the format from the HTML BBCode (html bbcode?!? I don't believe I've seen that) to the new [ flash ] BBCode format.

You can also create a custom BBCode that might match your current format to make it even more painless.
