Not Supported Re-usable Code  

On my forum, it is my belief that users need to be notified when moderator actions have been applied in a thread.
I.e. certain posts were edited, deleted, moved, or if the thread was moved, etc.

Usually I just type in blue font to distinguish such notes. However, anybody can use blue text so it was nothing special.

Well I created a fairly simple BB Code with CSS Table formatting.

It allows you to use a BB Code tag to distinguish the notes. For example, I could enter
"[moderation]This thread has been moved to the Chit-Chat section[/moderation]"
and the outcome is displayed at the bottom of this post (Attechment: Screen1.jpg)

The horizontal rule ( <hr> ) is included.

You can customize the CSS to have the dashed border display in a different color, as well as change text size, font, color, etc.

To create this BB Code:

AdminCP -> BB Code Manager -> Add New BB Code

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

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

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

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

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

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

All other settings are optional. I have also uploaded an basic letter "M" for "Moderation" to use as a button for this code. It is already resized to 21x20.

Finally, to prevent regular users from using this BB Code, install Abe1's Advanced BBCode Permissions Modification.

Hopefully I've covered everything

Um.

Why does "important note" here appear in the moderation message instead of what I type?
