Glow BB Code - Glowing Text
Mod Version: 1.00, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.x Rating: (10 votes - 4.90 average) Installs: 53
Released: 30 Jul 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Supported Re-usable Code Translations  

WARNING: There is a "Cosmetic Exploit" in this BBCode.
Someone who knows what they are doing can use it to add arbitrary CSS attributes to the text such as custom font sizes and background colors. It in no way affects site security but can be annoying if your users use it improperly. Use at your own risk.

This is a simple bbcode that if searched for you can find in various forms but in my search it appears never to have been written out as a bbcode mod for 4.x, so here it is... No 'programming' was needed for this, Aside from the button I don't consider it 'mine' anymore than the <font> tag is mine because I may use it from time to time. I am simply releasing this for those who may be searching for bb codes and not the general forum.

Shadow (the css behind this) is not supported by Internet Explorer 7 or 8, it will hopefully be part of 9 though. This works fine in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera.
Update: A work-around has been added for IE compatibility!

Demo: here.

Add a new BBCode

Title: Glow
BB Code Tag Name: glow
Replacement:

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

Example: [glow="red"]test glow[/glow]
Description: This code makes text "Glow" (Actually a shadow attribute)
Use Option: Yes
Button Image: (optional)
Remove Tag If Empty: Yes
All Disable Options: No

You may get a warning that says:
The following BB Code replacement may not be properly formed. All HTML attributes should be enclosed within double quotes.
You can safely hit "Continue" this appears to be a bug in the VB4 series.

You can use standard color names in the option such as red, blue, green, yellow, etc...
You can also use hex color codes preceded by the # sign for exact colors, such as #0000FF
Click here for common hex color codes.

Please mark as installed if you use this.
View My Profile for more BB Code Enhancements- they work on all versions.

Screenshot- Note: for some reason in the screen capture the green glow is barely visible. The effect is much nicer in the live demo above.

Note: If you prefer not to use the "option" to choose a color and just want the glow color to be set, say to red, to simplify use; [glow] as opposed to [glow="red"] for example then use the following replacement code instead:


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

Replace "red" with whatever color or hex color code you want.
Also under the "Use Option" choose "No"
For example use: [glow]glow text[/glow]

Do everything else the same.

Upgraded to work on Internet Explorer 8. I don't know if it works on IE7, I can't test it.

To upgrade go to your BB Code manager and EDIT your "glow" bb code.

Erase the "Replacement" box and instead use the following code:


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

The first thread has also been updated.

It looks like you didn't delete the old replacement text before adding the new replacement text... the code should only be:

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

You still have the original " <span style="text-shadow: {option} 0px 0px 5px;">{param}</span>" at the start of your code- that's why it's happening twice.

As for the "The following BB Code replacement may not be properly formed. All HTML attributes should be enclosed within double quotes." error you can safely hit "continue" it is a bug in VB, as you can see all HTML attributes are in double quotes. I think VB doesn't like the "if" statements but they still work.

I will update the instructions to warn people though thanks.

That's fine... it appears to be a bug in VB4... I have updated the instructions to reflect this, thank you.

You can't do that with this code... You can pick the color of the glow using this code. You can change the color of the text using the standard color bb code:
[COLOR="Blue"][glow="red"]This is Blue Text with Red Glow.[/glow][/COLOR]

BB Codes can only take 1 {param} and 1 {option} so there would never be a way to specify multiple colors via pure BB Code.
