XF 1.5 BBCode in Help Pages?


Well-known member
I guess it's not possible to use BB Code in the help pages. That's fine, but for spoilers it makes it difficult, because the replacement for spoilers is a bit different to a simple replacement, so it'd be a lot of code repetition just to get that going.

Any work arounds or ideas you could suggest to use BB Code in help pages?

Short of custom development, the only option is really to render it to HTML (such as by making a post and viewing the source) and then pasting the result in.

Personally, I'd go for just calling the bb_code_tag_spoiler template in the help page template, e.g.

<xen:include template="bb_code_tag_spoiler">
    <xen:set var="$titleHtml">
        I have something to tell you...
    <xen:set var="$content">
        It's a secret!
