Lightbulb gwBBCode - Add some style to your forums

Ever felt the need to have a synthetized view of a teambuild to interact with your allies, or lead it better?
Ever felt annoyed having to go to a fansite every time you want to know the exact description of a skill mentioned in a discussion?

Then maybe would you be interested in gwBBCode; have a look:


Wanna see how it works? Checkout this teambuild demo or that syntax presentation
gwBBCode is a forum extension hosted at gwShack, a place to host teambuilds and ease their editing.

So far 700 forums use it. phpBB is fully supported while vBulletin and punBB are still in beta.
Latest version 1.7.0 includes all Nightfall skills.

So! if you want to install it, all you need to do is download it here then place it in your forum directory and go to forum_dir/gwbbcode/install.php with your browser. Its license, GPL, makes it open source and free, so you can modify and spread it all you want!

Actually I prefer Phpbb to VB anyday.

As for the bbcode, I am currently running phpnuke and am wondering if there has been a port for this as well?

If not I can always modify things myself to get it to work

Latest version 1.5.4 takes into account March 2 skill update.
Sorry it took me so long to release it, but I took screenshots of all skill icons and rewrote all skill descriptions (10+ hours).

Version 1.5.4 also includes a working installation/uninstallation for vBulletin but I wouldn't rely on it as it works just like other BBCodes from vBulletin: activating/deactivating them only affects posts at the time they are posted, not after when they are viewed. So uninstalling gwBBCode wouldn't remove its use from already existing posts, a behavior I certainly don't want. If you know a way to reparse posts using new BBCode configurations, it'd resolve that matter.

That'd be great! All you have to do to port gwBBCode is
  • to include header.php before </head>,
  • to include body.php right after <body>,
  • to assign $gwbbcode_root_path to the location of gwBBCode's path,
  • to include gwbbcode.inc.php,
  • and to parse text possibly including gwBBCode tags using the parse_gwbbcode function, e.g $text=parse_gwbbcode($text);
I don't really understand where in phpNuke you'd like to use gwBBCode, otherwise I'd be able to help.

Thanks for the tips there I have almost complteted it now but am working on a nother project so its getting put on the back burner for now.

As well I want to use it in the phpbb portion or the forum portion of the site that ships with phpbb, the only problem is that the code is changed from phpbb to phpbb.

It shouldnt be a problem though, as soon as I get things up and running I will post here for everyone to see

This is incredible. I just installed it on my VB forum. Great job, I wonder why Guru doesn't have this installed, and why in the world it's not more popular.

I absolutely LOVE this. Was VERY easy to get working in phpBB2.

I just had one question... where do I go to change the appearance of the skill info popup? it looks like the text is not lining up over the transparent background like it should be. Maybe it is just me or something up with my forum but any help would be appreciated.

This is what I am talking about

Yes, Liu was a HUGE help and when he figured out the problem, sent me an updated version which works flawlessly.


Note to others... PhpBB + Aphrodite Theme + gwBBcode = nono.

Makes me wonder if other styles use the same kind of coding, and if it would be possible to offer people a choice to download the version that works with Aphrodite and all it's family of colors.

You need to be able to modify your forum files to install gwBBCode (need to include some javascript), but you can't do that on invisionfree's forums
You'll either have to host your own forum (i.e download a forum software and install it) or use gwShack.
