The code to add a bbcode is the easy part.The hard part is knowing what the HTML code is that the bbcode translates into.

Do you know what the HTML is to add the file types your looking for? If so, post it here.

this code for mp3, wma files:

Quote:

codeBase=http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701

type=application/x-oleobject height=62 width=420

classid=CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6>

this code for avi, wmv files:

Quote:

codeBase=http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701

type=application/x-oleobject height=420 width=420

classid=CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6>

Please note: I changed the tag names to [mp3wma] and [aviwmv] because there are a ton of video/audio formats, and this will probably not work for all of them(quicktime and realaudio come to mind).

You need to edit the bbcode.cs file, add the following code, recompile it, then copy the new binarys onto your web server.

This goes around line 84 (just before the line with "r_youtube" ) :

        static private Regex r_mp3wma = new Regex(@"\[mp3wma\](?<inner>(.*?))\[/mp3wma\]", m_options);
        static private Regex r_aviwmv = new Regex(@"\[aviwmv\](?<inner>(.*?))\[/aviwmv\]", m_options);

This goes around line 187 (just before "// youtube" ) :

                // mp3wma
                NestedReplace(ref bbcode, r_mp3wma, "<!-- BEGIN audio player --><OBJECT id=Player codeBase=http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701 type=application/x-oleobject height=62 width=420 classid=CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6><PARAM NAME=\"URL\" VALUE=\"${inner}\"></OBJECT><!-- END audio player --><br />", new string[] { "inner" });
                // aviwmv
                NestedReplace(ref bbcode, r_aviwmv, "<!-- BEGIN video player --><OBJECT id=Player codeBase=http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701 type=application/x-oleobject height=420 width=420 classid=CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11D3-B153-00C04F79FAA6><PARAM NAME=\"URL\" VALUE=\"${inner}\"></OBJECT><!-- END video player --><br />", new string[] { "inner" });

Oh one more thing.. when using these, it would be best to provide a full url to the file, not just the filename like the one you listed in the sample code.

something like:

[mp3wma]http://www.somewebserver.com/media/music.mp3[/mp3wma]

Hi,

I can't open the solution/project in Visual Studio 2005. Is there a particular version that I should use to recompile the project for the newly added bbcodes?

One more thing is that how can I display the [BB/] icon beside the other tools? In my forum, I can use the tags [youtube] [/youtube] to embed youtube videos on posts but I type it manually because the [BB/] button is not visible.

Please help.

Thanks in advance....

I still can't see the [bb/] button in the 1.9.3 beta released... Even if I update the forum with the repository version 😞

BBCode includes tags to allow you to quickly change the basic style of your text. This is achieved in the following ways:

To make a piece of text bold enclose it in , e.g.

Hello

will become Hello

For underlining use , for example:

Good Morning

becomes Good Morning

To italicise text use , e.g.

This is Great!

would give This is Great!
