Pure HTML in posts?..

I installed your board and must say I'm impressed! But there is one problem. When I use simple html it isn't converted to BBcode automaticly. My users do those quizzilla things and they just post their results but those come out as pure HTML. Now, I've seen the function deCodeBB(string) so can't I use that to automate the HTML to BB? And where should I put it? I know some php, but this is a bit too much for me...

We are using only BB codes for processing HTML results.

However, you can edit bb_codes.php functions and create some new replacements which will automate direct HTML processing.



will enable <b></b> code.

I put that code in the deCodeBB() function but it still doesn't work when I use <b>blah</b>

Could it be that the text isn't processed? Could it be that it has something to do with the smilie2 plugin I installed?

You should put it in enCodeBB() . deCodeBB() is used for DEcoding - when editing the message. But for HTML tags, I think, it is not necessary to put something here.

Hmm, putting your code in the enCodeBB() function worked, I even made a br variant. I'm still having troubles with the a tag and the img tag... I never used regex before so I guess I'll have to try and try...

Thank you for your help!

You don't need to make <br> variant, since all newlines (pressed by "Enter") are automatically converted to <br>.

As about <IMG> tag - in default version, it's much better to use BB code. Because, in general, <img> requries border, alt attributes and it is really hard for usual users.

Yes, I know that, but the users are just taking those tests and putting the code in the message. It's that code that contains the html tags, like <br> and <img>. And they don't know all that BB code, they just want to copy/paste...

Here is an example of that code:

<img src="" border="0" alt="text"><br>somemoretext.
<br><br><a href=""> <font size="-1">againsometext</font></a><BR> <font size="-3">some <a href="">link</a></font>

So all the normal html tags have to be replaced and that's what I'm trying to do now...

The main difficulty is that user can enter this information different way. For example:

<img src="" border="0" alt="text">
<img src="" border="0">
<img border=0 src="">
<img src="" alt="text" border=0>
<img src="" alt = "text" border = "0">

etc. is the same code for an image, but not the same for the processing script. Probably, you need to handle not the code itself, but just check for opening and closing HTML tags.

Yes, I know, but I saw all the code I posted earlier has the same layout, even if it are diffrent tests. So my guess was to put those specific codes in it and it should work for every test.

I tried replacing a regular <img src="blah"> tag with the correct BB code with this in the enCodeBB() :
$pattern[]="/&lt;img src=\"(.+?)\"&gt;/s";
It won't work though and frankly I don't have any idea what I'm doing/should do with that regex code...

I'm going to read some regex tutorials... Guess I'll need that.
