WordPress BBCode Plugin v0.0.2

After using basically every BBCode plugin available for WordPress–and finding every last one of them lacking–I decided to write my own. This one does not use shortcodes, as shortcodes apparently freak out when you want multi-line enclosed tags. My plugin applies filters to six hooks:

  • the_content
  • comment_text
  • the_excerpt
  • the_content_rss (strips BBCode)
  • comment_text_rss (strips BBCode)
  • the_excerpt_rss (strips BBCode)

The following tags are supported:


[b] -- Bold

[i] -- Italics

[u] -- Underline

[s] -- Strikeout

[url{=http://...}]{URL-or-link-title}[/url] -- Links

[quote] -- Blockquote

[size=n] -- Font size

[color=#nnnnnn] -- Font color

[img] -- Image

[code] -- Code

If there are other tags you’d like to see, by all means, request them in the comments.

This plugin is released under the GPL.
