Adding new Tag

Posted 29 July 2009 - 01:03 PM

I see a lot of the forum posters respect another member's role by displaying in their name in the appropriate color.
So I suggest an addition to BBCode tags [User=<UserName>]
When used the most appropriate color is automatically using.

Examples:
[User=SkyHawk133] => SkyHawk133
[User=PsychoCoder] => PsychoCoder

Fingers crossed that I use the wrong colors.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

This is an intruiting addition to Dream in Code. I know that members like Locke color code people's names when they use them in a post, so if we had some sort of BB tag that would to it for them (and keep it up to date) that would be awesome.

Cool idea in all :)

We're working very hard on upgrading the forums to the next version and the new BBCode API will let us code custom bb code tags that interact with the database like that so stay tuned :) Don't have a date yet, but we finally got past a couple major hurdles this week.

That would be useful and I would see many using it.

Just a test. What about this tag:

[hide]
If you can read this and you have not posted in this thread, then this tag is not in current use :)
[/hide]

We need a member who hasn't posted to see if this works or not. :)


--------------------------------------------------------

Seems like the [hide] tag isn't in practice.

I wonder who started this...:D ;)

I know I always colorized the names. Never saw anyone do it before me. :) So I guess, in my own little way...I contributed to DIC!

Anyway. I think it's a fantastic idea. I can see it being used by some of the more respectful members here.

@Locke, you always contribute :)

This would turn out positively and it will be widely used, regardless of being "more respectful" or not.

I just have a question on the [code ] tags...I've seen on many other forums that they render the tag as [ code=SQL], or something similar. Is it done like that on these forums but behind the scenes? If not, I think that would be a good tag update.

There are [ code=java] and such tags, but for html and such its just [ html]. Why don't you try clicking on the bbcode help?
