icon Anybody know PHP?  
I\'m wondering if anybody wants to help me with some PHP coding on tForum. If not, I will get around to doing it myself, but I thought it might be worth asking.

I got an e-mail list working yesterday. If you have a certain setting turned on, you\'ll receive an e-mail for each post on the forum, like ye olde Yahoo groups. To get it working perfectly, a routine needs to be written to replace UBB codes with plain-text equivalents.

Here is a sample message sent through e-mail:
admin posted:
{quote}{b}eytanz wrote{/b}:
In HTML, it would be possible to do so by using white-on-white writing to make highlighting the spoiler necessary; but HTML is disabled, and UBB has no such code. Anyone have any suggestions?{/quote}

Well, let us see if this works.  I have a secret: {secret}But I\\\'m not gonna say.{/secret}



So if anyone is interested, let me know.

There are actually quite a few nifty things that could be done with the messages board. Imagine being able to insert a picture of any DROD room into your message. Or having polls that can be displayed as messages with form input. Message boards rock ass!

I\'m no PHP pro, but I\'ve dabbled...

If you want to do a simple search and replace for some strings, this is pretty easy:

<?php
$str = \"admin posted:\\n {quote}{b}eytanz wrote{/b}:\\nIn HTML, it would be possible to do so by using white-on-white writing to make highlighting the spoiler necessary; but HTML is disabled, and UBB has no such code. Anyone have any suggestions?{/quote}\\n\\nWell, let us see if this works. I have a secret: {secret}But I\\\'m not gonna say.{/secret}\\n\";

$patterns[0] = \"/{quote}/\";
$replacements[0] = \"\\\"\";

$patterns[1] = \"/{\\/quote}/\";
$replacements[1] = \"\\\"\";

$patterns[2] = \"/{b}/\";
$replacements[2] = \"*\";

$patterns[3] = \"/{\\/b}/\";
$replacements[3] = \"*\";

$str = preg_replace( $patterns, $replacements, $str);

print $str;

?>

All this does is replace {quote} and {/quote} with a \", and replace {b} and {/b} with a *. More can be easily added, but for things like hidden - what do you want to do? Remove it altogether?

Well... you don\'t. The software doesn\'t support it. It would be cool if it did!

You can use produces:



You can also use [siteimage] to use an image on DROD.net. But there is currently no way for users to upload images. For example, [siteimage]pinkthreatsmall.gif[/siteimage] produces:

[siteimage]pinkthreatsmall.gif[/siteimage]

I\'ve written PHP code to receive an image and store it on another project, but I don\'t have time now to get it working for the forum. Maybe in the future we will have something for that.
