Blink BBCode- The Ultimate BB Code!
Mod Version: 1.00, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2021 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: 83
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.

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 header include 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.

Just installed the version from post 3 on my forums and its not working in Chrome for me on vB 4.1.3.

Weird thing is, your demo site from the 1st post works just fine (yes I tried the version in the op 1st and it didnt work either).

What was the exact code you used ?(since per the instructions you need to customize the file paths/names for your forum.)

My file paths were the same as yours so I left it alone.




EDIT: My bad, I was just going by the little preview box in the AdminCP.

I did it in a post and it works fine.

No idea... did you try it in English on the same board to see if the language really was the problem?

Hi Bird

Thanks for the comments. now it works fine. It seems that my other language forum has some bug with some plugin at the datastore in the DB. I just had to re-installed a new versions without any plugin.

Thanks again.

Cheers

I was unable to get this working in VB version 4.2.1. In post #3 it refers to "header include template". I was unable to locate that template name. Surely the header include is not a type o with nobody else pointing it out before now.
