...would love it if it could also copy the html code of elements!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@Mike who said this was 'useless' and 'flawed'. Extensions are built by users, not by the Mozilla Firefox team. Most of them do not earn any money, but they Do listen to their users. Packaging the functionality of this into a toolbar is easy, and so is adding support for more BBCodes - you could ask the developer for this feature or hack it in yourself or ask a friend. LIke most extensions here this is based on a Public License, so unlike with a proprietary plugin (such as the numerous ones available to Internet Explorer) it is _not_ illegal to modify or fix it.

As such there are many extensions that had humble beginnings (like this maybe just as a context menu) but grew to something more usable over time. Certainly throwing tantrums doesn't help the situation. Surely you can use another browser but you will not find anybody who is going to build you a plugin that does exactly what you want on the first attempt and without any input.

Also, look at your requirements "a way to make bbCode buttons on forum websites work" do really believe that this is a common goal for all and any users of web sites? I believe this is quite nice funtionality to live in an extension, as it is clearly not of interest to the average user.

This is a lovely extension; really perfect for those of us who wander forums that use BBcode but don't have the auto buttons for it. I enjoy having it, very much.

For the next build, would it be possible to add a feature wherein a user could choose which BBcodes they would like to show, or even add their own for the cases of the lesser used codes?

Thank you, very much!

Good idea

Choosing which ones to show is easy enough, I'll have a think about adding your own codes. Thanks for the review :)

"Link to this website as [url]" works great. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use Jed Brown's BBCode extension, which is maintained by MR Tech. I've wished that BBCode provided a way to create a named link, so I'm pleased to see that DM BBCode does that with its "Link to this website as [url]". That's the only feature in DM BBCode that I need and use. I don't feel any need for it to duplicate any of BBCode's functionality. BBCode already works well, appears to be currently maintained, and can be installed at the same time as DM BBCode.

Feature Request: Could you add "Link to this website as [url]" to the Tab context menu? Right now I have to open the target page to get this function and then switch back to the tab in which I'm composing a message. The Tab Mix Plus extension already adds "Copy Tab URL" to the Tab context menu, but it would nice to have the "Link to this website as [url]" selection as well so I can get a named link without switching tabs.

Excellent and simple extension that improve my forum's experience.

Note: would like it if "Make into [img]" would allow to directly insert the code + link to the image that's in clipboard (ie. without having selected it with "Copy to clipboard > selected [img] as"). Would be handy for all img url copied in another application.

Good idea

Thanks for the review kozaki, that's a good idea for an enhancement - I'll include it in v2.2 (v2.1 is already going through the review process!)

Thank you dirtmind ! Nice extension !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Wouldn't use a forum without it anymore Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using vBulletin forums for years but now couldn't imageine using a forum without this addon. It's got a bunch of simple functions that are only shown when you actually need them so it doesn't clog up your user interface.

When you right click an image link it makes the bbcode you'd need to embed that image link in a forum which is great.

I also really like the way it adds extra right click options when you're in a test box to apply bbcode to selections of text. This is really useful for quick-reply boxes or simple reply editors on forums.

This is now one of my must have addons! Thanks :)

Thanks

Thanks for the review, I'm happy you like it. I made it to make my life easier and hoped it would help others out the same way :)

This BBCode extension is fantastic! I can't imagine using a forum without it. It takes up a lot less space and is much easier to use than alternatives. Also it's cool to see the developer responds to review comments and incorporates new features.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Glad you like it

Thanks for the review :)

Needs more, much more Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This deserves 5 stars if it had more than just 2 options.

So far, it lets you wrap the url of the current page into BBCode URL tags, and IMG tags if you're viewing an image, and it lets you wrap selected text into BBCode quote tags.

It needs the ability to allow a user to wrap selected text in tags for bold [b], italics [i], and many other common BBCode tags that people use daily.

I really don't know why those aren't already implemented. The quote tags are useful, though, so is the URL tags for the current page.

SUGGESTION: make this extension usable in textareas so we can simply select/rightclick on what we are posting and add tags to a word or sentence, or even a paragraph. Then this extension will be AMAZING and extremely useful for forum goers everywhere.

-Edited to respond to Developer comment: Thanks, mate. I just now realized that it works with IMG tags. Very nice, I've already used it. I tried editing my review earlier when I figured this out, hopefully my review gets approved soon.

By the way, I really do hope you look into making this usable in textarea's. Good luck.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

It does do a bit more

Thanks for the review - I like the textarea idea and will look into it.

The extension does have options for urls and img tags but you need to right click on images or links to see the options - I didn't want to present the option if they were irrelevant in the current context.

Thanks again, that's a really helpful review :)

EDIT: I've incorporated your suggestions about textareas into the extension - great idea thanks a lot :)
