VERC: PHP URL Tag Formatting Last edited 7 months ago2019-03-17 02:27:29 UTC by Penguinboy Penguinboy

A note from the editor
This information is entirely useless and is only retained for archival purposes. Chatbear and VERC are both offline so no comments can be posted to these websites. This formatting is not used on TWHL.
The url tags on this site and on the Chatbear message board system (which most of my tags are based on) use this format:
url=http://www.url.com/[url description]url
This is parsed from a block of text ($string) using the following PHP code:
$string = preg_replace("/url=(.*?)\[/", "<a href=\"\\1\">", $string);
$string = ereg_replace("\]url", "</a>", $string);
So, you can do something like this ...
url=http://collective.valve-erc.com/[VERC Collective]url
...and you'll get this ...
