HACK: Additional emphasis method for posts (_word_ becomes italic word)
BY: KuraFire [www.kurafire.com]
DESCRIPTION: If users use _underscores_ to emphasize words (old skool italic), it will make those words italic in posts
DIFFICULTY: Easy
INSTALL-TIME: 20 seconds
STEPS: 1


EXTENDED DESCRIPTION:
I know plenty of people (myself included) who use _underscores_ when they emphasize words. This is mostly with people who use IRC a lot, which lacks italic words, so people use _these_ to emphasize instead. And sicne _underscores_ are a lot faster than typing [i]blabla[/i] or using the button (if you speedtype, going to your mouse is just sooooo slow ^_^), I figured people might want to have this on their board as well.
It will parse words with lowercase, uppercase, numbers and/or - or _ inside them. However, it won't take multiple words at once (ie. no spaces in-between) for then you couldn't use a normal _ without causing the rest of the text to become italicized. (not that I can really see people put a random underscore in a sentence, but still...)

It's _the_ easiest hack ever, to install ^_^

Nice hack, but i don't need it since I am not a speed typer, plus I am waiting for vb3.0 so I am not installing any hacks at all no more.

No, but don't you have any people on your board? They might type fast and enjoy it. And it's not like adding 1 single line of code (that's all!) is gonna be a big problem for when you upgrade to vB 3, now is it?

;D
But a nice addition though :>

That's cos nobody is used to this ever becoming italic, since no program or anything still uses _this_ method, but a lot of people _do_ use it

Personally, I do it incredibly much, but I never realized that with a small regex I could make it go italic (the way it used to) on my board, so when I did I made the hack ^_^

nice hack - I don't see why you guys insist on posting comments about a hack in a negative manner - hey , if you don't want to use it , or find it's not useful for you , how about just continuing on to the next hack to see if it fits your needs instead of posting needless , worthless comments ? It would make these forums a much nicer place to visit and seem less filled with egotistical asses.


INSTALLED.

Yeah, it just doesn't work if you're typing really fast and you have to go to those silly brackets, eh?

/me hugs the _fast_ way of emphasizing ^_^
