vB Quote
Author Message
I believe that tagging syntax on forums should generally be as simple as possible, as most people aren't really coders.
MyBB generally conforms well to this (tags are generally quite simple), except the new quote tag introduced in MyBB 1.4.

Personally, something like this is a bit too much code IMO:

Code:
[quote='Joe' pid='13892' dateline='1239871234987' some_other_crap='98j2983j4ad']

...and the user probably doesn't really know the reasoning behind everything.
This plugin turns something like the above to something similar to vB quoting, like:

Code:
[quote=Joe;13892]

which, IMO, is much simpler and nicer.

This plugin also has a few other features:

  • [ and ] characters in usernames don't break up the quote
  • username will automatically be updated if a user's username gets changed
  • user profile link in quote

The package includes a MyBB 1.4 and a MyBB 1.6/1.8 version.  Ensure you upload the correct .php file to your inc/plugins/ folder.
Note that the MyBB 1.4 version doesn't handle [ and ] characters completely right, whereas the 1.6 version does.


Update on 19th May, 2010: Also note: it may be possible for users to gain some information about posts in hidden forums/threads/posts by playing around with the pid in the quote.  I haven't implemented any protection against this in this plugin, but I don't really think this is really that big of an issue as they can only really get the timestamp and user who made the post but not the content.

Update on 4th Jan, 2011: This plugin won't modify existing quotes in any way, eg, it won't change the syntax or style of quotes made before this plugin was activated.

Install a test clean forum, put the plugin on, and verify it works.  If it does, apply your modifications one by one to determine what's the conflict.

I did as you said but it worked out, but still is not working at my forum.

RE: vB Quote
Did you apply all of your modification from your live forum to the test forum?

RE: vB Quote
I'm sorry if I can't understand it correctly.
So, you upload a backup of your real forum to your test forum.
In your test forum, the vB Quote works, but still not in your real forum?

Using a backup doesn't necessarily mean that all the plugins are translated over.  Ensure that all your modifications are installed on the test forum.

RE: vB Quote
@RateU. Yes, that is what I meant and it worked.

@ZiNgA BuRgA. It is a full backup, so I thought that just reinstalling was enough.

Does it matter if those plugins are deactivated on my original forum and not even uploaded to my local forum? Because i just uploaded and tried the ones that are activated on my real one into my localhost.

Sorry for my English Ouch
