vB Version: 3.5.4 Rating: (34 votes - 4.32 average) Installs: 510

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.

Yes RS25com, I noted this too. Also, as I mentioned above, in vbAdvanced, the HTML does not parse at all and is displayed as pure html code. However, if you then go to the forum manager (ACP) and enable HTML for that forum, it will display correctly on vbAdvanced - which somewhat defeats the object, unfortunately. It is, nonetheless, and excellent tool.

While I am using vbadvanced, I don't display any posts on the home page of my site. All my content requires a thread to be entered first, so that doesn't affect me (although it will other users).

If those two bugs are fixed, I think it would be perfect.

I only enable this when I have to post html then uninstall right after posting. Works perfectly but seems to add a 1 onto the server load when left on.

punchbowl, so you just enable it to get the html code saved in a Post (so the html code won't get parsed out) then simply disable the entire mod? I assumed you had to have this enabled to get the html code to be displayed even... interesting..

What vBulletin version are you running?

It's still displayed for all users correct? i.e. Only Admins can post html but all can see the html properly displayed in the Post.....

yep exactly. I install the xml through the cp, post my html then uninstall it the product from the cp.

I'm running 3.7.3

I tried just disabling it but then the posts eventually turned into unparsed posts. So I edited my post above to change disable to uninstall. Obviously you can leave the php file up.

Correct. I really like this mod, I use it all the time.

To edit, I just do a View Source of the HTML page I am editing, copy the HTML to the clipboard, then edit the post and paste the HTML in. Luckily for me, I only ever have 1 line of HTML (an Iframe) so it's not much of a hassle.

Yes. By only allowing admins to post in HTML, guests & registered members, etc. cannot post in HTML but they can see the results of an admin posting something in HTML.

I've unistalled this. Being unable to edit HTML is a hassle. Instead, I made a custom BB Code which had all the HTML I needed, and I just pass in the variables I need which is far easier.

Dang this is welcome -- and so needed.

Very useful plugin! Thanks for this.

Using with 3.4.7 -- no problems seen so far other than as previously noted.

Sometimes these vB folks are just plain slow on the uptake. This has been a needed feature since before the advent of "web 2.0". Now it is urgently overdue.

In plain English, for today's modern web, it is important that forum managers have the ability to post HTML "rich" content, ad lib.

For this feature, vB should not make itself the HTML police. The forum manager/owner/administrator has to be able to post active content on their boards.
