text formatting in [code]

09 Dec 2016, 04:10

I'm still a bit new and wonder if we could hi-light some text in-between [ code ]

Some use the blue buttons in the forum-editor and don't see that it isn't working:

Code: Select all

gui, add, button, default gok [color=red]default[/color], OK
Makes it hard to read or copy/paste correctly :(

Maybe the forum-editor should hide his own buttons when one is between [ code ] ;-)

Did you notice this is recent posts or from the archived board? Because I haven't seen it lately. In the archived board you would find that because prior to some board migrations the color BB-code inside code tags did parse to colored text.

Maybe it was within the archived board. Never mind then.

Not all BB tags are allowed for Guests I believe, so when guests post and they use COLOR it won't work here in the new forum. If possible only showing the BB tags (buttons) that are allowed for guest posts would help a bit so they can't use it without typing them manually. On the other hand it doesn't happen very often so probably not worth the time and effort.

I have it again:
When previewing my new topic, it isn't coloring the text in-between the Code-tags!

Color tags within code tags

Code: Select all

If (Color = 0xFF0000) ; color is [color=#FF0000]red[/color]
are not supported!

Would there be a way to filter our color tags inside code blocks? That way the don't contaminate the posted code and as you may recall the color tag causes a lot of issues in the previous forum when it was converted so now quite a few scripts on the old forum no longer work as they are riddled with COLOR tags. If they can be scrubbed at the time of posting they won't be included and never cause similar problems in the future.

You'll find those tags in the old forum because then it did parse to colored text so people used it. Due to conversion that parsing no longer takes place, resulting in broken code.
For the current forum it isn't supported so you shouldn't use it. Making it get parsed for those that do, would alter code without certainty if it's required. For example, posting a hotstring to add closing tags to a bb-tag would not display properly.

Code: Select all

Ok, thanks. I first taught it didn't work in the old-forum, but I understand now that you can't use tags in the new-forum and the tags in the old are not not working anymore...
