New BB tag to do rainbow text...

vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 19
Released: 08 Jan 2003 Last Update: Never Downloads: 12
Not Supported  

This is a fairly simple hack that allows you to create a new BB tag to do
rainbow colors with text. It is only a few lines and the only file affected
by it is admin/functions.php.

You can see a sample output in this thread: http://www.ls1.com/forums/showthread...hreadid=225576


Note1: This hack has been done and tested on VB 2.2.9
Note2: Using other BB tags within the rainbow tags will convert the underlying HTML code in to rainbow text.

Note3: You can find the revised and BB code friendly version in this post

Note4: You can find the version that displays the full spectrum of colors in this post.

Please add your hack in a .txt file rather then showing it like this. Thank you.

Cool hack ... However, I have some problem with some unicode characters. They will show as #xxxx, not as the real unicode charaters. Would you please point out what should I do ?

I wonder if you can point me to a thread in your forums so that I can see what you are seeing.

Zzed, I figured out how to take the black background out but how do I make the rainbow text the same size that is set for the message? It is bigger than the regular message text.

Great hack, by the way.

Thank you Boofo.

Here is how you fix the font size.

Change this line in dorainbow()

That was quick. Thank you.

Here is what I changed to make the background transparent.

It works, but is it the correct way to do it?

Boofo, You can actually leave out the bgcolor stuff and just use <td> by itself.

corsacrazy, unfortunately to the best of my knowledge this is the only way to do it.

DOHH!!! I figured that out after I wrote the message. Sorry about that. The size change works great but I can not change the size of the text to anything else within the message now for some reason.
