I made mention of this in the Glow buttons thread, but I thought I'd make my own thread to track installations...

The original glow button script is by Matt87, and I must share credit with lichtflits, who came up with this very same idea, but didn't release it as a hack, due to language limitations.

Glad everyone likes it :D

Yes, that is Drizzt... I love the pure 'tude in that pic...

And this hack should work fine with just about any version of vB, but I've only tested it on 2.2.6 and 2.2.7

Same here for the past 6 months. :) You can do the same with the "shadow" effect too, very easily.

for some reason whenever i use it this is what happens

lets say i'm writing this sentacne:

"and he was like OMG i gotta see that"

what i end up seeing is this:

and he was like
OMG

You're right... This was because it was using a <table> tag to assign teh style setting. It now uses a <font> tag, so it won't interrupt a line. Check the readme (http://www.lazerlite.com/forum/glow_readme.html) for the updates.

I've just installed this hack, nice and easy to install, and very good, esp now you are using a font tag and not a table one.

The only thing I would suggest is that to anyone installing this hack, have a mess about with your buttons and where they sit, if you look in the screen shot i've attached I've dropped the B U & I tags to the next line so it all fits togther better :)

Blast from the past! A mod might want to delete this, since the hack link goes offsite and is no longer there. There's at least one identical glow dropdown still on these forums, which I used.

But before you get rid of this, maybe you could tell me how the glow effect on the dropdown is done, like you can see in the screenshot. :$ I thought to change the:

style="color:[insertcolorhere]"

in vbcode_glowbits (a copy of vbcode_colorbits, of course) to something like:

style="filter:glow(color=[insertcolorhere], strength=3)"

but it didn't work. Suggestions?
