This is a nifty BB Code to generate QR compatible 2D "Barcodes" that getting more popular due to their compatibility with Android, iPhone, and other smart-phone devices. You can encode any text you want in a 2D Barcode up to 250 characters. The most likely use you will have for this is to encode a URL someone will then scan and follow.

These barcodes are generated and hosted by this site:
http://api.qrcode.kaywa.com/services/qr

Barcodes are for NON COMMERCIAL USE ONLY.

They reserve the right to alter or cancel this project at any time so I strongly urge you to save important barcodes locally so you have a copy. While there will always be free barcode generators out there it is less likely there will always be free ones that allow hosting of the code and a public API to interface with.

Using this BB Code is simple, put the data you want between [qr] [/qr] tags. Usually this will be a URL but it could also be plain text. In this implementation the encoded text will appear in a small font below the image. Also since I expect most will be URL's clicking on the image will open the URL in a new browser tab or window. If the data encoded isn't a URL though you will get a "404 Page Not Found" error.

You are obviously free to edit the replacement text to remove the link and/or text per your preference. If you need help doing this just ask.

Note you MUST include the "http://" to be compatible with most smart phones and for the link to work properly.

To install this BB Code on your vBulletin forum:

This generates 2-Dimensional bar codes encoded with information you place between the BB Code tags, usually this is a website URL but it can be any text too- a short message like a text message can be encoded as well.

People with smart phones like iPhone and Droid phones can read (scan) the barcode and the phone will translate it to a website link or show you the text.

It's useful as a way from a smart phone user to save a link to their phone by scanning it- other than that it's mostly just for fun.

There's no reason this wouldn't work on any VB version.

When it was released "4.0.x" was the only option available.

Pretty much all BBCodes work fine with anything from at least 3.5 and up.

seems the service from kaywa.com isn't for free anymore, so the bbcode doesn't work.

does anybody know another good generator service?




[edit] found this one, works for me...
