[B]Live Demo: (Retired)

An all new version of my "Advanced [YOU] BBCode" mod, now completely compatible with the blogs, cms, and all other parts of the forum.

This mod creates the [YOU] BB-like-code. When someone types [YOU] in a post or thread or virtually anywhere else on the forum (if enabled) it gets changed to the username of the user currently viewing the page.

The mod allows you to specify a replacement to use for guests and users not logged in. The default is simply "you."

There are setting to allow the admin to enable and disable in the following areas:
  • Specific Forums (or all forums)
  • PMs
  • Visitor Messages
  • (Social) Groups
  • Picture Comments
  • Blogs
  • CMS
  • Widgets
  • Sidebar
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Signatures (when viewed in posts or PMs)
  • User Titles (when viewed in the postbit)

You can also specify "Immune" usergroups who will always see [you] so as not to get confused, if you wish..

If you need the older version for some reason it is still available as the VB 3.8 mod:

I do not have plans to make this work with other 3d party mods, sorry.

If you follow PHP code at all it is fairly simple to duplicate wherever needed.
