This BB code will give a CSS drop shadow to text inside it. You can use it to create better looking articles, posts, news etc. It works on all browsers except Internet Explorer.

In the vB ACP go to Custom BB Codes > BB Code Manager and click on Add new BB Code and fill in the following.

BB Code Tag Name : shadow

Example : [shadow=2]text shadow[/shadow]

Use {option} :
Yes

Button Image :

Remove Tag If Empty :
Yes

Disable BB Code Within This BB Code : No

You can set the shadow distance by adjusting the value inside the first tag. For eg this [shadow=2] will give a shadow of 2 pixels.

To change the colour of the shadow replace the : #a4a1a1 with any colour that you want.

Vijayninel, many thanks for making this. I have installed it according to your instructions but is not working on my website. I'm running VB 4.0.5

I have checked in Mozilla Firefox, Safari and IE. Any suggestions ?

Hi! Just to clarify, are you specifying the shadow amount when using the code ? like are you giving [shadow=4] or any number ? just putting [shadow] wont work.

Also if your background is of a darker colour then you may have to change the colour of the shadow from #a4a1a1 to something that is more suitable and contrasting for your background.

I got it! It does work great. I got everything right except when the option box was coming up I was putting [shadow=4] instead of just 4.

Now, I have a question. If I don't want to use the "option" where in the coding would I put the shadow number?

Thanks,

Margaret

If you dont want to use option, then just replace the {option} in the replacement with the size number of the shadow you want in pixels.

For example this code :


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

used along with this BB code [shadow]text[/shadow] will give you a fixed shadow of 4 pixels. You wont be able to change the shadow size according to the size of the text.

What can we do if Microsoft cannot make a browser which supports CSS ? Anyway not all sites have users which primarily use IE. On my site 70% of the users use Firefox for instance.

Besides it wouldn't hurt to use this affect. At least the users of other CSS compliant browsers will have a better visual experience on your site.
