UBBCode Tags

UBBCode Tags - 11/08/08 02:58 AM

I'm going to take and list out all of the UBBCode tags here; why? Well, I don't want to have to update the FAQ manually for every update :P...

I'm not really going to delve into the "Default Tags" which can be found in the FAQ; instead we're going to focus this posting on "Custom Tags" (those which where added in that are not "stock features" of the forums; or at least bear further highlighting).

You're probably asking "why all the custom tags?" well, quite simply put, it uses a lot less space storing 20 characters in the database than it does 300+...

It is still kind of supported; an easter egg if you will... I just don't like it and much prefer just embedding the video id...

Code:
[video]http://www.site.tld/id[/video]

Will work for Yahoo, Google, MySpace and YouTube videos only.
