vB Version: 3.5.4 Rating: (34 votes - 4.32 average) Installs: 510
Released: 26 Sep 2005 Last Update: 28 Nov 2005 Downloads: 2010
Not Supported Uses Plugins Is in Beta Stage  

Just like the name says, this ultra-simple little Product will allow you to specify Usergroups that may post in HTML and have that HTML be parsed...SOME PEOPLE ARE HAVING TABLE PROBLEMS - THIS IS UNSUPPORTED USEAGE OF THE MODIFICATION AND I AM UNABLE TO ASSIST!

***BE AWARE THAT INDISCRIMINATE USE OF THIS HACK IS RISKY - RESTRICT IT TO ONLY THOSE USERGROUPS YOU TRUST ABSOLUTELY***

The scary message above is to make sure you are aware that enabling HTML for any group opens you up to security issues. This is why it is not a feature of Stock vB, probably.

I decided I needed to have the ability to post in HTML because I just installed ZT's RSS Feeds hack, and the ones I got from Google looked all horrible.

Now updated to be controlled by a Setting in Usergroup Manager, it's phrased and even works in editpost.php (preview) in WYSIWYG and normal modes, AND the Forum Rules shows HTML is ON.

This will not work retroactively. That is, if a User posted something in HTML before they were given the ability, that post has to be edited by that member (or someone else with HTML ability) in order to be parsed. I am assuming this is due to post caching.

Many thanks to Kirby for prodding me to figure it out by myself and not just telling me what to do.

A "demo" is here..html is OFF in that Forum, but the post is made by an Admin, so the HTML is parsed.

Sorry, I'm not really sure how to manage that. If anyone can suggest a way, I can add it.

Can I make HTML parsed posts ignore the blank lines so that I can have full control over <br> ?

I tried looking for a separate hack/plugin, but nothing comes up on any forums or searches

I'm having a small issue on 3.8.4. The HTML parses fine on my two installed skins but not the vb default one.

just upgraded to 4.0.7 and now ANYONE can post code.... their usergroups say no, but the forum has it turned on... It's basically ignoring the usergroup specific options and just going with the forum options?

It was never designed as an OFF switch, it's supposed to override the OFF switch in Forum Options.

ie: If you set a forum to have HTML on, then HTML is on, this mod won't change anything.

so I should set the admin group to on and leave all forums off and it should work?

edit:
just checked, having HTML off in a forum, but the usergroup set to on DOES NOT WORK in 4.0.7.
right now, this mod doesn't really do anything, setting the forum to on makes HTML work for everyone, setting it to off breaks it for everyone...
