Stop the direct Image Codes ([img]), and force [imgs=...[/imgs] instead

Paul, is there a way to stop people from making image links that do not use the code as defined by the 'camera' bb code for pictures button?

So that something like this won't call up the full image directly:

Too Big

But is changed into the correct format instead?

Correct Image

Does that make sense?

Sorry, I'm not sure I'm getting this properly? It should work by default that way.

It's IMGS tag versus IMG. IMG is up to display full size picture, IMGS is up to fit the picture to the width, which is defined in $GLOBALS['imgsWidth'] of bb_codes.php. IMGS is inserted by default, may be some of your users became clever and started to remove the S letter? who knows...

If you want [img] pasted instead of [imgs] when the proper bb btn is clicked, modify main_post_form.html

I think that's the problem...

Some users are not using the 'BBcode for the picture' button, and are pasting their own code using [img, rather than [imgs...
Can that be stopped?

I used the wrong term in the title/original post I think...

You can completely disable [img] tag in bb_codes.php.
Alternatively, you can transform all [img]'s to the same format which is provided by [imgs].

Pity :) you should have your own rules for the website, and not allow others rules. Any website has its own rules.
Any user considering these rules wrong, should leave the website. Not sure what else can be done in this case.

I'm meeting this quite often. "Hey, why this and that doesn't work here, but it works there?"
The answer is simple: "That's why".

Yep - I agree.
But I don't think it's malicious by the users.

So, how can I edit bb_codes.php to make all images tags follow the [imgs... format?
(You know I'm a dunce at this code stuff! ;o)

1. remove all [img]-related tags (both from enCodeBB or deCodeBB functions).

2. change [imgs...] or [imgs] tags having this:

\[img[s]*=...
\[img[s]*\]

This will allow to use either [img] either [imgs], but all codes will be transformed to the [imgs] hyper-linked approach of displaying.

Mmmm... I really can't workout what to delete and what to edit...

This really is just beyond my capabilities ;-(

I just don't have the skills needed.

1. open bb_codes.php for editing (my recommendation is to use Notepad2)

2. Locate all codes which do contain [img=..] or [img] - remove them or disable them, putting double slash in front //

3. Follow my solution above to fix [imgs] codes to have 's' letter put alternatively.

If you can't even do this, ... then you need to hire somebody... possibly me :)
