    Ed, man, this is gonna be a really tough coding job but I think it's possible. You're familiar with XML, right? Well if you're not, it allows one to make their own HTML tags. I think you should allow for a user to have their own customized UBB tags (call it XBB or something) and that will be really cool. If you need more clarification just say so.

    That would defeat the purpose of not allowing users to use HTML in the first place :D

    TAG GUARD

    No, here's an example. I set one up that I'm going to call "ACTION". I set ACTION to be "|color="ff6000"||b|". So whenever in a post I type |action|, the script translates it into |color="ff6000"||b|, and whenever I type |/action|, it goes to |/b||/color|. Understand?

    NOTE: To avoid viewing problems, the [ and ] were replaced by a |.

    if you did it that way, you'd literally output the color and b stuff - with the [ and ].

    You'd have to use HTML, to convert <action> to <font color="#ff6000"><b> and </action> to </b></font>

    Then of course, I could just write a little <blah> tag that brings up a popup.

    So, no.
    It's not gonna happen.
    And it's entirely overkill.
