BBCode nesting in 3.1

Post by Hunchman801 »

Hi all,

I understand this problem is solved in 3.2 with the use of s9e\TextFormatter, however this causes critical issues in 3.1 such as the ability to break the page layout with the following code:

Code: Select all

(That works with any implementation of the spoiler tag you'll find.)

Are there any commonly used workarounds for 3.1 to prevent this from happening? Such as using a different parser, or setting up a BBCode via events rather than using custom BBCodes?
