Make the writing process more easier


Guest JavaGenius

Recommended Posts

Dear IPB Team

I would like to recommend you to enhance the writing process in the board (wrting topics and replies).

When I want to use Insert list functions, I would like to be done for me automatically without using the [l i s t=1]
[/l i s t] tags. Exactly like what vBulletin done in their 3.6.7 version (go and see). Also, in the (Indent) function tag.

Other thing is that when writing in the code tags, I would like to see the code colored weather it is PHP, Java, C# or C++. Also, like what vBulletin done in thier version(go and see).

It will be great if you maintain these issues for us.


Best Regards

Mohammed Al-Moayed

I honestly think you should be making your own bbcode for different syntax highlights. I would not expect to see any of them implemented by default since most forum users will not use them. The ones that are in IPBoard now are legacy highlighters that have been around for a long time. PHP was once in there too, but removed due to bugginess.

As for the list tags, there is a java tool for this both for the RTE and standard editor for both ordered and unordered lists.

Maybe I am misunderstanding, but both of these are already done if you use the RTE. :unsure: Sounds like he's wanting it to work inline - hit list and it makes a list, not the list bbcode. This is already a feature.

If he's referring to something else, someone please clarify.

what I meant is that, I dont want to to see the "list" tags in the text area.... I want it to be done just like I am writing in MS Word.

You are right...

How can I do it in IPB?

And What is RTE???

Yeh, I got it....

I tried it in the RTE.. it worked with me...

But, When I switch the writing direction to be (rtl) and then write in arabic, the numbers are displayed to the left of the list (it should be to the right as its direction is rtl.... I will show waht I mean in the next reply...


Also, I can not do that in the Fast Reply!!

All you should need to do is add this to your CSS:



ul, li { direction: rtl; }



yeh but, I want it to be changed dynamically. Depending on the direction of writing that I choose. As I might write in the two directions in the same topic.

I think that it should be changed in the code level... so you associate its direction with the direction of the text..

IPB has NEVER had PHP syntax highlighting.

From post_parser.php for IPB 1.2 :)

            /***********************************************/
            // If we are not parsing a siggie, lets have a bash
            // at the [PHP] [SQL] and [HTML] tags.
            /***********************************************/
And later:

        $possible_use = array( 'CODE'  => array( 'CODE',  'CODE' ),
                               'QUOTE' => array( 'QUOTE', 'QUOTE'  ),
                               'SQL'   => array( 'CODE' , 'SQL'),
                               'HTML'  => array( 'CODE' , 'HTML'),
                               'PHP'   => array( 'CODE' , 'PHP')
                             );



It may not have highlighted, but it was in there at some time :P

Again, that's exactly how it is if you use the RTE that IPB has built in. The standard editor displays the default bbcodes, the RTE does not. Standard is enabled by default. To use the RTE you need enable it in your user control panel
