Forum Feature Ideas

From what I gather, they are currently:

  • Inline code tags, to format things like filenames and addresses while talking about them.
  • "Quote" button to automatically quote posts; ability to do this for more than one post too.
  • Maaaaybe smileys, though that's definitely not anything near to a critical feature.

Anything else that's needed?

  • reveal tag to toggle display things
  • hidden tag that requires you to be logged in to see
  • A timed reveal tag that only makes the content accessible after a specific date and time.
  • Treeview tag to turn tabbed text into a treeview (as seen in the zelda documentation pages)

Edit:
  • This

    • is

      • a

    • tree

  • view

    • nice

      • isn't

    • it


This bbcode does not have a button at the moment, but it's straight forward:
[tree]
This
	is
		a
	tree
view
	nice
		isn't
	it
[/tree]


Edit 2:


Here's the bbcode for toggle content:
[toggle="Some Awesome Hidden Content"]This text, it is awesome.[/toggle]

If you do not set the button text it will say "Toggle Spoiler".

Edit 3: You can now use the tab button in textareas. This should prove useful when using the code and tree tags.

Now that quotes are added, and I've added a way to filter out content with it, I'll be able to add the hidden and timed tags. (Previously the problem was that if you quoted a post with a timed tag, you'd see the content. Now I can have it removed entirely on serverside when quoting so you can't possibly access the content, unless you own the post.)

Hidden tags are now added. The content is only visible to users that are online, otherwise a message saying "You must be logged in to view this section of the post." is displayed. When you're online, you can see what content is hidden from the slightly darker background and lock symbol in the top right corner of the block. And here is what nested quotes look like now (You can't go deeper than 3 quotes):
You must be logged in to view this section of the post.

How about a list of supported codes somewhere?

This is interesting

Well, looky there, we've reached 2014-06-27. Awesome.

This section of the post is hidden and is scheduled to become visible 2038-01-19 00:00:00

Schedule tags are created like this:
[schedule="2014-06-27 00:00:01"]Well, looky there, we've reached 2014-06-27. Awesome.[/schedule]

I've set it up so that it shouldn't be possible for anyone except the post owner to see the content of the tag before the date has been reached. When a post is taken from the database the tag and its content is removed if it hasn't reached the specified time. The only except is when editing your own posts.

Fixed an issue with the schedule tag not closing when quoting a schedule tag that is already visible.
