Idea: [key ] bbcode
« on: November 23, 2011, 01:35:33 pm »
I've noticed, and ran into myself, some random problems when trying to type out calc keys on the forums.  Normally brackets would work, like [ON], but a few of them mess up, such as +,* and some others.
I was looking at the wiki tag and it looks like it might be possible to draw a solid rectangle around the words, [axe]like the wiki tags do the dotted lines.[/axe]

What I'm thinking is of a [key ]tag[/key ], or maybe [k] for short, that would draw a rectangle around the words inside of it so the problems don't happen anymore.
Would this be feasible?

That sound pretty ok. :) Would be handy I guess.(or they just could make 'smilies' for each key) :P

That might work, if the images from the getkey table were used or something.
Tho it might get weird if someone wants to use a key, say, on the 89 that the 83p doesn't have :P

Okay.  I made it so "[key]" will turn into "[nobbc]," which will fix the problem for you.  Great idea!

THe key images sounds like a good idea too, but if they are used I think they should be relocated on Omni server (after asking Critor's permission), because the host they're currently on is incredibly slow, if you notice how long they take to load on the getkey page.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Notmally [*], [+] and some others start doing random bullet points
  • [0]

and this gets rid of it ;D
[key]
  • [/key]

    It's just kind of weird, in the preview window it shows the bullet points with visible nobbc tags around them but in the actual post it works right..

[necro]
I stumbled across this earlier.
Looking at the css for the keys, they seem somewhat similar to the wiki tags, there's just a few differences.

After messing with firebug, I was able to change
[axe]TEST[/axe]
to

by doing
Spoiler For code:
border: 1px solid #000000;
border-radius: 4px 4px 4px 4px;
in element:style and taking out the link.


Would something like this be simple and/or possible to put in as the key bbcode? ;D

That actually looks pretty nice. I wonder if it's supported in all major browsers though?

It's supported in my browser (opera)

UCF has it so if you do something like [+ ] or [)] it automagically changes to an image of the key. I think that is better than [key ][ /key]

According to mdn border-radius seems to work across the board.
If it wouldn't work it would just be a hard-cornered rectangle outline anyway :P

TI-Planet does that as well, critor designed key images and added them as smileys. That would be interesting.
