A quick mod to re-enable some URLS on 1.4.21 and later
« on: June 09, 2009, 06:40:54 pm »

I wasn't happy with URL's being disabled in BBcode in 1.4.21 because I was using one in an album description. I have a pretty good idea what the problem is but if I'm right it's only an issue when decoding user-submitted BBcode. I made a small modification so my album descriptions can still have URL's in them but users can't post URL's in their own descriptions or comments.

In include/ where the original line was commented out, I modified the function header for bb_decode:
Code: [Select]
function bb_decode($text, $decodelinks = false)
...then I put this block in place of the changed code:
Code: [Select]
if($decodelinks) {
    $bbcode_tpl['url']  = '<span class="bblink"><a href="{URL}" rel="external">{DESCRIPTION}</a></span>';
} else {
            $url_removed = '{URL}';  // put the image URL in the tooltip/mouse-over
    $bbcode_tpl['url']   = '{DESCRIPTION}<img src="images/descending.gif" alt="" title="' . $url_removed . '" />';
...then changed the line in index.php that prepares the album description (line 536 in v1.4.24):
Code: [Select]
            $alb_list[$alb_idx]['album_desc'] = bb_decode($alb_thumb['description'], true);

I hope this helps somebody else.
