Okay, since I know some people have a hard time trying to get their text to glow, I've decided that I'm gonna put this up.

NOTE: I've received some complaints about the code not working. This is only because: A, you are putting something else in the option while using the Tag other than a valid Colour (Either by name of #CSS) or B, you are using Firefox, a non-compatible browser to many things of vBulletin and special HTML tags.

Right, goto your ACP:
Custom BB Codes --> Add New BB Code

Now, type as the following:
Title: Glowing Text

Tag: glow

Replacement: <div style="font-size:12px;letter-spacing:normal;font-style:normal;font-family:verdana;color:#ffffff;filter:Glow(color={option},strength=5);height:22px;">{param}</div>

Example: This is radioactive!

Description: This BBCode will allow you to make your text glow. It will only work in Internet Explorer.

Use {option}: Yes

Button Image: images/editor/glow.gif

For the button image, download the image in the .zip attachment and upload it to FORUMDIR/images/editor

I hope you enjoy this code and use it well!

Yeah - this bbcode has been posted several times now (here and vb.com) and nobody really used it ... (no offence of course) - its just that 92% don't use IE ... at least according to the stats of my forum (1600 member)

People don't use IE because Number 1, they follow the crowd and Number 2, the people who told everyone to switch to FF in the first place are paranoid. There is nothing actually wrong with IE. The only thing wrong is when people go browing to places they shouldn't be browsing to. I don't use FF because it's worshipless pap. Trust me. If you want tabs and etc... get IE 7. Even MORE secure than FF.

Believe it or not, vB was supposed to be used with IE, if you want the extra stuff working.
Try editing the templates in your ACP on Firefox, now look at the same page in IE. You get the picture...

great looking BB code thingy...I love it and installed no problem.


just one observation....

when its used the word/s highlighted shift to a new text line in the post?

Is there a way to use this to highlight a single or string of words in a line of text without the highlighted words shifting to their own line?

cheers

:cool:

Installed and working fine. But you might want to look in the pdf file for the install on there. In the Replacement text {param} there is a space in it so it looks like this {par am}

That doesn't explain the fact that IE uses a lot of CSS that isn't exactly considered valid or accepted by the standards

This rather means that vB is (partly) coded poor; if you write decent code/markup it's supposed to work in the majority of the browsers, making your site only for one narrows your group of potential members and can thus be considered as not the best thing to do.

Statistics have shown that roughly 10-30+% (Depends on what country/target you're aiming) of the users on the web are using other browsers than IE, which is quite a big group in fact.

yea well, ie doesnt even support css2, so it doesnt format div tags the way it suppose to. IE has activex which can get you in trouble, i find more people get a virus or spyware because of using ie.

Firefox is open source, you can add a searches at the top plus extensions. Its simple. Firefox has tabs.

IE 7 is not way more secure than FF, just more options that you have to deal with. Like Vista you see all the new security options!!! Thats rediculous. There should not be that many if windows was really secure and IE.

Only reason i dont use IE is cause its microsoft. I didnt want to switch either, but then i did and i cant go back to IE, it just plain sucks. But hey at least windows and IE give me a job, i do computer work so whenever someones computer screws up its always something with windows or spyware they got from IE.

Why wont microsoft make ie open source? I bet its all stolen source code anyway. Mac OS is basically open source, thats way more secure than windows. Thats just my 2 cents.

No! (not that i have found)

XML allows only 1 object to glow per line - vb

HTML 3.0 allows multiple things to glow per line - ipb - i believe can do this...?

The question there is ofcourse; why would you bother using an outdated webformat that lacks a lot of functionality and compatibility to use a - excuse me - ugly browser-specific bbcode? There are at least hundreds of alternatives to do with Javascript (try search on Google or whatever SE you want for it) that work in all browsers, if you really need that glowing effect.

Okay, well, this mod didn't intend to start debates, and I also want this violent IE vs FF debate to stop, because I send a request to release the Moderators!

or B, you are using Firefox, a non-compatible browser to many things of vBulletin and special HTML tags.

It's not the browswer thats non-compatible ;)

This works very well in IE, tis a shame not in FF though as most of my members use FF, I would say about 80% FF just loads my site so much quicker :)
