Changing output of $posterText on the fly

Hello Community,

does anybody have an idea how to manipulate the post text without manipulating the database entry? I don't want to change the post text in the database, words should be replaced by loading the template / just in time.


Kind greetings,

Do you mean $posterText which is displayed in the message thread?

If so, you could use parseMessage() function which has to be pasted in bb_plugins.php. For example, this will return text with no HTML:

function parseMessage(){

This function is used widely for many plugins, for example, file upload addon, premoderation or moving replies. Be sure to set it up properly - it requires programming knowledge.
