Add more BBCode to this forum and maybe other addons

Postby budz45 » Sun Jan 10, 2010 7:04 am

hi guys,

I know this forum is running the lovely free phpBB version 3 for this forum. Having a small forum myself I know that like software 'Extensions' (a.k.a plugins or addons) can be added to these type of forums to give it more features.

To make posting and editing of posts more enhancing for me I would like to see the admin on this Xnview forum install these:


I actually had the idea for this topic because I just wanted text 'Strikethrough' feature on this forum but I begun to think about other possible extensions too. I wanted Strikethrough because I do a lot of requests and bug reports and want to be able to edit my posts and cross out resolved issues for myself while still keeping those resolved issues readable. I would like the strikethough as an actula button and not only the bbcode. BTW, you can now do some Strikethrough in Paint.NET 3.51 like this (I ringed it): http://i49.tinypic.com/28ldw1w.png


What do you think of the requests for more extensions?

Hi budz45 :-)

As a moderator I'm not involved in updating the forum software, so I don't really know if it's less of a hassle to install & maintain extensions in phpBB v3 compared to v2.

IMO the most urgent improvement would be to make the forum search accessible for visitors.

Agreed. I thought that forum search would be possible as guest but now found that it's disabled. I'll discuss this with Pierre.

yes I agree with the 'Search' function being accessible for non-registered users too....

Any news on the other requested phpbb addon functions for this forum? I would love to use strikethough right now on all my previous posts on a thread where bugs and requests I wrote got completed.

btw I found this:
One new feature on phpbb3 is you can add custom bb code in the admin panel.

This article will explain how to add your own custom BBCodes. phpBB3 Olympus has a powerful new feature that lets you add your very own BBCodes directly from an easy to use admin panel interface -- no MODs or code changes needed!

Yes, striking-through works as soon as you embed your text in the tags [s] and [/s]. Thank you, Pierre!

Well, of course, you don't just have only the manual option of using tags. There is the convenient BBCode button in the writing editor added too

IMO Pierre could move that 's' button and put it after the 'u' (underline) button... Would make visual sense
