dynamic display of username
« on: August 18, 2009, 09:29:13 PM »
Don't suppose there's a wildcard you can put in a post that displays the name of whatever user is viewing it? Kind of like in aim profiles with that %screenname% thing. probably not but just curious, it would open up some interesting options.

hehe, suppose. I hadn't really intended to display the name, just append it onto links. which probably isnt a good thing but you could do some interesting good things with it to be sure. although really that wouldnt even be needed if html 5 just hurried up and got here *drools*

The best part is you'd never know if someone was talking about You or just using [You]

There's a mod that if a users name is written in the post, and that user is viewing the post it highlights said persons name, dunno if thats what you're on about, i'm still half asleep lol

mm, unless it ran before img bbcodes were parsed and could be appened to the url attribute nah probably wouldn't matter. no worries about this
