Default An interesting bbCode you might not know about...

Some of you might not be aware of the NOPARSE tags that were added to vBulletin a few years ago, so I thought I'd clue you in.

The NOPARSE vbCode tags tell vBulletin (our forum software) not to parse anything inside the tags - that goes for other bbcode, smilies, image links, etc.

The best way is to show an example - for instance let's say you wanted to show someone how to use the IMG code to embed images in the forum post. Let's use a link to our site logo as an example. Well you can't just normally type [img]http://www.gamebeat.net/forum/images/misc/gamebeat_mainlogo.gif[/img] because the forum would automatically replace that text with:


But if you wrap that in the NOPARSE tags like so:

[noparse][img]http://www.gamebeat.net/forum/images/misc/gamebeat_mainlogo.gif[/img][/noparse]

Then the forum won't parse the IMG bbcode (or anything else inside the NOPARSE tags), it would disoplay like this:

[img]http://www.gamebeat.net/forum/images/misc/gamebeat_mainlogo.gif[/img]

Pretty nifty huh?

Watch this... the entire text below is wrapped in NOPARSE tags:

:):(:confused::mad::p;):D:o:rolleyes: [img]http://www.gamebeat.net/forum/images/misc/adspace_background.gif[/img] [url=http://www.yahoo.com/]Yahoo![/url][php][/php][spoiler][/spoiler][html][/html][quote][/quote]

What would the above look like if I hadn't wrapped it in NOPARSE tags?

Yahoo!


Get it? It's a handy little bbCode!
