Import / Export BBCodes as XML files (updated by BOP5)

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (9 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 41
Released: 25 Sep 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 98
Supported Additional Files  

This mod is based on an original mod released way back in 2005 by Dream. Original mod thread: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=91435 (Marked Re-usable code.)

The purpose of this mod is to give vBulletin the much needed ability to quickly import and export BB Codes as .xml files. Imagine importing a single file rather than going through all the steps of copying & pasting code to install a new BB Code.

The original mod was a good start but it needed serious updating for vBulletin 3.8 & 4.x.

Some changes from the original mod:
  • Had to change a variable name due to a conflict
  • Had to add support for additional BBCode options
  • Had to have the mod refresh the BBCode Cache upon upload of a new BBCode

This mod does not have any product/install XML file.

To install simply upload the two files and refresh/reload your Admin CP page. You will see the new option "Import/Export BBCodes" under "Custom BB Codes" on the side menu.

To upgrade simply overwrite the two files.

To uninstall simply delete the two files.

bbcodes_impex.php - Goes in your admincp directory
cpnav_ieb.xml - Goes in your includes/xml directory

Once installed importing and exporting of BBCodes is fairly self-explanitory.

You can only upload BBCodes saved in this specific XML style.

You can download more BBCodes in this format from:
http://www.qapla.com/mods/forumdispl...-Qapla-BBCodes


Many more wll be added soon.

Tested and working with vBulletin 3.8.7. 4.0.8, and 4.1.5. Expected to work on all vB 3.7, 3.8, and 4.x versions.

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.

Can't imagine why this isn't getting more attention. A much needed time saver.

Installed and working 4.1.8

Hello,

Great work, thank you =)

I have a question, when I was in vbulletin 3.8 I was using a background bbcode where I put image URL and it make the thread background the image, but since I upgrade to vbulletin 4 it don't work =\

And I'm tired from searching everywhere for anything concern this bbcode but can't find any clue about it =.=

Anyway the replacement code was:

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

And still the old thread with it showing the background, anyway I hope if you can spend minutes to guide me how to fix it ^^"

Best Regards,
Sarab
