BBCode differences
« on: June 09, 2006, 07:29:50 am »
I just want to point out to you guys the major differences I've come across in the BBCode for the forums so far.


At the moment, I can only think of two:

Code: [Select]
[url=http://forums.soldat.pl]This is a url[/url]
instead of

Code: [Select]
[url="http://forums.soldat.pl"]This is a url[/url]
The second one will not work right.  These forums are not meant to have quotes used in the url tag

There is also a difference in how font size is handled.  In the old forums, you ended it with
Code: [Select]
[/size=3] where 3 is the size you were using.  Now you just do

Code: [Select]
[/size]
---

There are also differences in how these forums handle lists.  See the link below for information

 a more complete guide can be found at http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=57


For the record, this is the standard for BBCode... the old forums were nonstandard when it came to this, along with many other things

The color change is also different:

Code: [Select]
[color=red]This is blue text, lolz[/color]
instead of

Code: [Select]
[red]And this is green text, LAMO[/red]
That's about all I've noticed myself.

Oooh, the code tags finally do what they're supposed to do and ignore all other tags.  I love these new forums.
