BBCode extension for greasemonkey addon or for browsers supporting user script
-> Greasemonkey or available for firefox/chrome*/safari only
-> Should work also in internet exploder with IE7Pro (user script addon, not tested).
-> If you want to try port the script to other browsers/plugins, you can copy paste it from above link.

Features:
-> Adds bbcode [color] functionality (custom font colors).
-> Adds bbcode [colorname] functionality (predefined font colors).
-> Adds bbcode [img] functionality (pictures).
-> Adds bbcode [h1-h3] functionality (headings, font size).
-> Adds bbcode [font] functionality (font).

Version history:
v1.00 Initial release

Get Firefox Greasemonkey plugin from here
Get Safari Greasemonkey replacement from here
(Greasemonkey replacement for Chrome)*
* Apparently not needed anymore as userscripts are supported by default in Chrome (thx for the update PsyKzz)

Tweak to your own pleasure. Based heavily on 4Chan BBCode script by BlizMK (http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/103989)

Code formating instructions for all the added code can be found here.

Don't forget to visit also the "EVE Online Classic forum style" and "Eve Online frontpage replacement"-threads.

If any tags are visible on above text, your extension script is not working correctly.

Btw could some1 give some feedback about script installation to newest Chrome version...

- are userscripts enabled by default nowdays and does the script run smoothly?
- ...or does the greasemonkey replacement run it smoothly?
- was there any problems during installation ?

Chrome installs everything as userscripts are now supported by default. Works fine.

Meh.

Hey,

Nice script indeed. Installed without problems.

Am I right to believe that someone not using the script will only see tags and regular text ?

Correct.

CCP mentioned in some post long ago that removed functionality like signature images should be returned in "some point", but honestly - they haven't "fixed" the "ganked"-screen, "posting page timing out and eating your post"-issue, "percent characters causing bbcode parser to fail"-bug or any other issue since the release of the forums.

In some point they actually tried to make dev/csm/gm tags to link next unread dev/csm/gm post in the thread, but even that they managed to fail miserably. Only tags that are now linked are inside the thread, but the most important ones in topic selector aren't linked at all. You have to manually find some dev post inside a thread so you can click it to get to next one... very convenient :)

This script was mainly made to show the signature images and coloured signature texts some people are still using and originally it was supposed to be temporary solution while CCP fixes their nerfed BBCode stuff... However I've lost my hope with the forum crew already. Nothing happens.

Slightly modified version. Now *rnd* becomes a random number, to restore the old signature rotation functionality.

I would have made it [r] or whatever it used to be, but signature editor doesn't like nested bbcode.
