NEW BBCODE to describe Effects!

Post by admin » Tue Nov 30, 2010 11:42 pm

Over the years, I've been trying to use the same 'format' to show people how to code in an effect. I finally decided it was time to have a BBCODE to support this!!
I created 6 new BBCodes which depends on the quantity of effects you wish to present. There are: effect1, effect2, effect3, effect4, effect5and effect6
They all use the '|' separator since this not (as far as I know) usable in Excel formulas.

Here are example of use:

Code: Select all

[effect1]Yes|All Class Skill|Class Skill|bluff-p,climb-p[/effect1]
OUTPUT:
Permanency: Yes
Effect #1 Name: All Class Skill
Effect #1 Type: Class Skill
Effect #1 Modifier: bluff-p,climb-p

Code: Select all

[effect2]Yes|All Class Skill|Class Skill|bluff-p,climb-p|STR|Enhancement|12[/effect2]
OUTPUT:
Permanency: Yes
Effect #1 Name: All Class Skill
Effect #1 Type: Class Skill
Effect #1 Modifier: bluff-p,climb-p
Effect #2 Name: STR
Effect #2 Type: Enhancement
Effect #2 Modifier: 12

Code: Select all

[effects6]Yes|All Class Skill|Class Skill|bluff-p,climb-p|STR|Enhancement|12|Armor Class|Unnamed|2|HP|sacred|3|Rage per day|unnamed|=i_CharacterLevel|Skill Points|Max Value|23[/effect6]
OUTPUT:
Permanency: Yes
Effect #1 Name: All Class Skill
Effect #1 Type: Class Skill
Effect #1 Modifier: bluff-p,climb-p
Effect #2 Name: STR
Effect #2 Type: Enhancement
Effect #2 Modifier: 12
Effect #3 Name: Armor Class
Effect #3 Type: Unnamed
Effect #3 Modifier: 2
Effect #4 Name: HP
Effect #4 Type: sacred
Effect #4 Modifier: 3
Effect #5 Name: Rage per day
Effect #5 Type: unnamed
Effect #5 Modifier: =i_CharacterLevel
Effect #6 Name: Skill Points
Effect #6 Type: Max Value
Effect #6 Modifier: 23

Great! But I have to ask, there's not going to be a tag button for this? Perhaps in a drop down selection like for the font size, if that's even doable?

Only for the first 2 effects (i.e. 1effect and 2effects - That should be sufficient for those who actually post effects :D

I updated these bbcodes as the were made obsolete due to a Forum Upgrade (the new bbcode parser *cannot* support a bbcode that starts with a digit)

So [1Effect][/1Effect] and [2Effect][/2Effect] have been replaced/updated.
