Blink BBCode- The Ultimate BB Code!
Mod Version: 1.00, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline

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.
Check My Profile for other BB Code enhancements. They work on all versions.

Is there any code that can be added so this will also work with " < " and " > "? As it is now it works fine when able to use the " [ " and " ] ".

Installed on vBulletin 4.2. The code sort of works, but it shows the text twice, one blinking and one not. Is this what it's supposed to do?
