I think this is a pretty nifty feature :-)


Now that the forum tags are detected for you (whether or not you check the button), maybe the button should indicate "do *not* use forum codes"? I guess that would be complicated for editing old posts vs. making new posts, where you said the detection logic is different.

First time I read this post they were just plain text. Now with the boxes/colours etc it looks much more professional (and pretty!).

Constructive criticism time :) I noticed in another post someone already used one of these templates. That's great, I think they're very useful, however, the larger ones with a lot of text tend to make the post a little clunky looking. If they were maybe wider instead of fixed width it might look better and not cause the entire reply to look so long? Just my thought on the matter.

The look improves when the stylesheet reloads. If anyone else is not getting nice boxes, refresh the page in your browser, which forces style.css file to be reloaded from the forum server.

I know the one you mean. I fixed up the [codetag] tag because I think that will be used a lot, and it is quite wordy. I made a forum page to explain in detail what it was getting at, and changed the tag to point to it.

Also I made the boxes slightly wider. Without any width at all they tend to look a bit big.

Would you consider changing the width: 450px; to margin-right: 4em; ?

When looking at the page in a maximized browser window, there's so much dead space to the right of the tag, making you scroll more to get to the actual content.

For example look at the [regexp] template. There's a lot of text that can wrap with the browser.

Template:regexp Regular expressions
  • Regular expressions (as used in triggers and aliases) are documented on the Regular expression tips forum page.
  • Also see how Lua string matching patterns work, as documented on the Lua string.find page.

It's roughly the same icon. Do you mean the .exe icon is a bit rough? It's old, maybe it is feeling its age.

Yea, the matting doesn't scale up well now.

Actually that doesn't look like the icon I have defined in the code for the 48x48 pixel icon. I think my development environment might be too old.

I know, we can say it is a "retro" look, because MUDs are so old. ;)

Can I suggest a new tag for a direct link to a forum post.
This came up because my latest plugin uses another plugin that a user may not have and I wanted to put a link to that plugin's forum post.

One thing I like in some forum software is that you can quote a message with attribution. The forum code looks like this:

[quote=David]Hello there[/quote]

The rendered text is something like:

Quote:
David said:
Hello there


I think it would be kind of nice to have something similar here, and the templates would make the quoted text stand out very nicely from the poster's text -- sometimes it gets hard to tell who wrote what (even with the indent). Also, having a name in there makes it easier to quote several people in the same post, as you can attribute each paragraph correctly.

If this isn't hard, I think it'd be nifty. :-)
