Testing bbcode posting (please delete?)

Recommended Posts

A brief internet search revealed that Invision board software is supposed to accept bbcode. I wish there was a way to preview this, but it does not appear to be so. Since I prefer to edit my post in Emacs using bbcode mode before posting (I just lost a big post I was working on due to an errant keypress) I hope that it is alright I am testing this functionality. Feel free to delete this once it has been posted... unless somehow you feel it is useful?

 

Well, here goes...

 

Size 150

 

Size 200

 

bold

 

italic

 

underline

A paragraph.

 

Another paragraph.

OK, so bold, italic, underline, and links appear to work, but not size changes. I didn't really try other tags.

 

Oh oops, I just now saw the preview button in the options at the top of the editor. Sorry! :(

 

quoted text

 

[style size="30px"]size in pixels[/style]

 

[style size="200"]size in number[/style]

  1. Entry 1
  2. Entry 2

Well, in Emacs we would call it killing and yanking, but, yeah. :)

I just came across a perfect example.

 

So I discover that the posted bbcode adds a line feed (and an extra bullet at the top) unless you have it all on the same line. Like so:

 


[list]

  [*]item

  [*]item

[/list]

 

Results in:

 

  •  
  • item

     
  • item

 

However, if you put it all on one line:

 


[list][*]item[*]item[/list]

 

Results in:

 

  • item
  • item

 

Now, to make that change in Emacs took only a few seconds to make a macro and run down the list making the needed changes, removing the extra spaces. And that (among many other reasons) is why I prefer to edit in a real text editor instead of this java-scripty-web-2.0-thingy. Although the forum does seem to have some quite nice features.
