    hmm... it would be a nice change. i think the determining factor here is whether or not webmaster is willing to do it. (messing with the forum source code is no easy task, especially in light of problems before.

    My point was more along what ygf said... does webmaster want to actually dabble in the code, or leave the beast alone.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    i say members look at the source code, find the file that needs to be edited, and tell the webmaster(who is that by the way?) how to do it step by step

    Yes I do jerkoff.
    I program php, and I'm pretty sure you don't, otherwise you'd know it wouldn't be that hard either.

    i'm assuming the source is at vbulletins site, i'll download it and be back to you later. If they can parse the smilies then it's easy to just format ;) within code tags as ;).

    if the source were freely available, why pay for it?

    >>even though i jerk off a lot

    yeah i just figuerd that out,
    so why did cgawd say to look at the source? I can't see it.


    Besides from what I've seen cruising around their site, things like
    bold spit out html code for bold, so if smilies are enabled then :) is replaced with img tags for that smiley, easy to not do that if it's within code tags. When parsing and it reads the code tags then set a variable, and don't reset it until the closing code tag, then start replacing :) with img's again.

    How's that for an abnoxious little queer cgawd?
