A necropost to ask for [spoiler] bbcode.
It would be useful to hide large images under a spoiler to spare network traffic of those who have to count it.

I think I see the motivation :) But making it do what you want it to do is not trivial, and probably not supported by phpBB.

In particular, this doesn't prevent the image from being loaded in at least Firefox and Chromium, and is how most [spoiler] tags are implemented:

Code: Select all

<div style="display:none"><img src="hugeimage.gif"></div>

I think that, even though it still loads the image, it could be very useful for making posts more organized and cleaner, therefore easier to read and understand, without having a bunch of images, videos or large texts/codes in the way.

That, in addition to not auto-playing GIFs (or at least not visually, I'm not sure how that works(all i know is my pc freezes for a min until they all start playing))... Threads like 'What are you working on' this could be a major plus.

Code: Select all

if self:hasBeer() then self:drink()
else self:getBeer() end

I'm the admin of another forum (unrelated to Love2D) and honestly this is much more inconvenient to maintain than you think.
Every time there is a phpBB update you have to update all of your mods too and something always breaks.
Naturally, phpBB mods are usually "behind" in version and a nightmare to update.

Looks like phpbb does support custom code snippets. :)

Doesn't phpBB just let you add your own bbcodes?
lf = love.filesystem
ls = love.sound
la = love.audio
lp = love.physics
lt = love.thread
li = love.image
lg = love.graphics

Good point. It does! Never used that feature myself though.

yeah, that's what I did when I cared enough to run my own forum.
Nowadays I don't have the community for that. (nor did I really have a big community anyways :p)
