Topic: better bb_bar

Demo

What does the extension do? (currently written for PunBB only)

  • Adds a toolbar for inserting bbcode into posts.

  • Adds 2 new bbcode - spoiler and strikethrough

  • Adds the ability to resize the textarea

  • Smilies hidden by default, can be shown by using the relevant button/image link

  • Adds the ability to change smiley sets

  • Toolbar only shows if javascript is enabled

  • Spoiler tag adds a javascript toggle if javascript enabled, and 'masks' the text it isn't

  • Different styles/themes can change the default set of button images

tested and working in IE, Firefox, Chrome and Opera.

Re: better bb_bar

Looking for feedback before I release it.

I do have one small feature to add in, some dynamic javascript syling - to highlight open tags on the toolbar.

I created because the pun_bbcode bar appears on the page whether javascript is enabled or not, and it also needed to be amended for 2 of my current extensions. As such this extension also replicates the functionality of PunBB BBCode Extended and PunBB eSmiley so that they are not needed.

Re: better bb_bar

Maybe will be better to display smilies in popup window? Because, if there too much smilies, bb-bar looks bad.

Re: better bb_bar

Currently you can't add smileys to the list. But if the list grows long, it should just wrap.

But I'll be looking at a way of listing additional smilies at some point.

Re: better bb_bar

Something that would let you have a full list of smilies open in a new window, yet still display the most common ones as normal, would be great.  Especially if there were a way to include smilies of varying resolutions.  I guess I would rather have at least a short list of emoticons visible by default.  All the other stuff looks great.

Re: better bb_bar

I wouldn't be adding a 'new window' for anything, at least not in this extension.

Re: better bb_bar

I think you mean this one: Forum Fixes and Images Beta

Though it is probably time to take that one out of beta (well after I've tweaked it a bit for my other extensions).

Re: better bb_bar

It looks really good but I agree with the comments above, some smilies should be visible by default and not hidden away. Additional ones could of course be hidden. You are getting into the realms of having smilies categorised as popular and not though.

Is it custom javascript or something like jQuery?

Re: better bb_bar

Custom javascript utilising various scripts - and based on an infamous one by Alex King - which is used in WordPress - but mines better smile

What I might do is make the default set of smilies available, and then if there any extra ones the show more button could then show them. But I have to add in some major things - like checking that bbcode is in use, images, smileys etc from the settings. This could take a while as I'll have to mix and match javascript with php more than I would have wanted.

Plus of course another project is currently taking up my time.

Thanks

Re: better bb_bar

well i assume you know how to add a link to the menu.

so you can add a css class in there, and then copy what I've used elsewhere to create the CSS, then you just need to create an icon...

Re: better bb_bar

what you've got now is the css id in the li:

<li id="navextra1">

and that is already styled correctly in the CSS with :

#navextra1 {
    background:transparent url(images/navextra1-home.png) no-repeat center left;
}

so just change the image, or the url to a new image
