View Full Version : BB Code Enhancements - [BBCODE] border

17 May 2009, 03:47
First post; not sure about the format:

I searched for a decent BBcode in which gave me a border around the text.. just a simple border; nothing fancy.. nothing that is pure trash and confusing the user, just something to make the post purty.. well after a while and some help in the right direction from Lynne

Title: Border

BB Code Tag Name: Border

<div style="border: 2px ridge #F4E673; padding: 5px;">{option}<hr>{param}</div>

body goes here; doesnt affect the layout

This gives the user a golden border around the text which also allows for a header above the section

Use Option: Yes
Disable if tag not used: Yes
Rest of them: no

Demo: Here (http://www.closestudios.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14)

Extra info: if i get any requests to make a button image for it; ill do it- but i dont have it readily available on this computer.

Your Support
I dont care how you do it; just dont say its your when you know you got it from here =)

Well, it allmost works.
If I put no title (e.g.bla,bla), it does not work.
There must be at least = sign (e.g.bla,bla)

Anyway, thanks for it, installed

Glad y'all are enjoying it; and yes there has to be at least a = sign, i usually just add a space after it just to be sure.

I did it like this:
<div style="border: 2px ridge #CC0000; padding: 5px;">{param}</div>
Obviously you can change the color and the border thickness and style
then all you need is:
text or whatever

Installed, although I changed the style in the tag to a class and put the CSS bit in the stylesheet.

nice installed,,

PS "use option" should be No..
then you dont have to add = to

thats only if you want to add special features maybe let the user control border color.

then you would use this code

<div style="border: 2px ridge #{option}; padding: 5px;">{param}</div>

and the bbcode will be [border=ff0000] this makes a red box

I added both exsamples on screenshot
