New BBCodes

Post by Ron2K »

I've just added some custom BBCode to the forum. Here's what I've added:
  • [youtube] - YouTube videos.
  • Spoiler (show)
    - Display of spoilers - it hides the text, and you have to click on a link to show it. This only works if you have Javascript enabled. You can choose to add a description, much like the [quote] tags.
    [*]
    Out of character:
    - Out Of Character - primarily for role-playing threads such as the Phoenix's Garters and the Pride of Darkness.
Example usage is as follows:

Code: Select all

[youtube]uBbmiQhuAhU[/youtube]

[spoiler]Some random string[/spoiler]
OR
[spoiler="Rick Astley"]Never gonna give you up...[/spoiler]

[ooc]warble[/ooc]
This post will be edited if we ever add any more.
