BB Code Questions

Post by squirrelly-sama » Thu Dec 06, 2018 10:25 pm

I was wondering if there was a reason for the lack of certain options for BB code such as [s]strike-through[/s]. [spoiler]spoilers[/spoiler], [sub]subtext[/sub] and embedding. I can maybe see why Embeds could be locked due to bandwidth problems or such but the others not so much.

Probably because Ares didn't activate them. There may be an extra cost.

I've got all of the features included in the basic phpBB package activated. Any additional features for the site, including things like tables, direct video linking, extra BBCodes and the like would have to be installed manually by myself. I'd be willing to look into doing so if you guys think it's worth pursuing. I tend to put my efforts here more on how to maintain the community than improving the technical aspects of the board, which I'll admit might be a failing of mine as site owner. I'll put the work in if the interest is there.

The ones I listed in the OP are really the only ones I would see used often, especially the Embedded videos. If nothing else embeds would be something I'd really appreciate being added.
