Blink BBCode- The Ultimate BB Code!
Mod Version: 1.00, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Dec 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.x Rating: (15 votes - 4.60 average) Installs: 59
Released: 30 Jul 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 82
Not Supported Re-usable Code Translations  

Back in the day Netscape made the <blink> tag, and it was good...
But then all the hater's rose up and effectively destroyed the humble <blink> tag in an attempt to strip it of its pure awesomeness and erase any trace of its existence from history. This can not be allowed to happen so I present the BLINK BB Code... There is another Blink BB Code for 3.7 but problems have been reported using it in 3.8 while this one works in 3.8 and 4. You also don't need to disable other bbcode or smilies like in the original version.

NEW!!! - See Post #3 for a version that works in all major web browsers.

It is currently working in IE, Firefox, and Opera. It is not working in Safari and Chrome, for my site that is less than 12% of all traffic so I can deal with some people not seeing this amazing tag... for them text just won't blink, there is no error. It requires JavaScript to be active.

This is based off of code found here and their copyright remains intact. I have made some additions for increased compatibility.

Demo: here.

Add a new BBCode

Title: Blink
BB Code Tag Name: blink
Replacement:

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

Example: [blink]test blink[/blink]
Description: This code makes text Blink in IE, FF, and Opera
Use Option: No
Button Image: (optional)
Remove Tag If Empty: Yes
All Disable Options: No

Unlike the other blink bbcode you can have line-breaks in this code...
[blink]
line 1
line 2
[/blink]
works just as well as [blink]line 1. line 2.[/blink]

Please mark as installed if you use this.
Check My Profile for other BB Code enhancements. They work on all versions.

I have a new version that works in ALL major browsers including: IE / Firefox / Chrome / Opera and Safari! This is a little more complicated to implement so if you're happy with the existing tag there is no NEED to upgrade, however this new version works on more (all) browsers.

It makes use of the jquery javascript library built into VB4.

Step 1. Download the attachment, unzip, and upload the .js file it to your /clientscript/jquery/ directory. (This may be under /forums/clientscript/jquery/ or any other directory you have your forums installed in.)

Step 2. Admin CP -> Styles and Templates -> Style Manger -> Choose your style(s) -> All Style Options: Edit your headinclude template and add the following code at the bottom of it:

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

Make sure you change the file paths to the .js files to match your directory setup. For me it's "/forums/clientscript/filename.js" If your forums are in your web root your location may be just "/clientscript/filename.js".

jquery-1.3.min.js is already installed in your /clientscript/jquery/ directory.

Step 3. Make a new BB Code using the instructions in the first post or edit your existing blink bb code. Use the following replacement code instead of the replacement in the first post. (much shorter):

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

Save your new or edited BB Code and you're done. You know have a [bkink] tag that works in all major browsers.

Note: Updated to use VB4's built in jquery file.

You could also do this and not have to worry about staying up-to-date on jquery.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js"></script>
Also, a text file with the instructions would be nice, too, so users didn't have to always come back here for installation instructions in case it ever needed to be re-installed.

installed and working in 4.0.6

I do agree with Boofo that instructions for installation should accompany the download of the js

That is certainly possible although I usually prefer to host all files locally if at all possible so I'm not dependent on someone else's servers, no matter how reliable they are.

I'll PM you the info on Password but I didn't create it so I'm not posting it... it's actually pretty useless though, if someone quotes the message they'd see the password.

I will start providing downloadable instructions for my mods, I have a few to catch up on... in the mean time you could always copy and paste the info from the relevant post into a text file and save it if you're worried you may lose access.

Just FYI, there is a new directory in vb 4 now:
\forums\clientscript\jquery\
It contains 5 files:
jquery.droppy.js
jquery.floatbox.js
jquery.styledselect.js
jquery.tooltip.js
jquery-1.3.min.js
I don lt remember seeing that in vb3, but it has been a while.

Thanks Boofo, I didn't even think to look if VB4 shipped with jquery (vb3 does not) - I've updated the instructions once again to make use of the file that's already there.

To be totally honest, I was surprised to find that directory in vb 4. Maybe vb 4 is finally going in the right direction using jquery.

What's funny is it's there but not being called by the forum, I still had to add the line to load it in the header include.

your welcome- but really the thanks should go to the good people who designed the jquery package - I just found this and thought it would be good for us VB folk.
