CustomBB question

Hi,

I am looking at using xenForo but one thing remains and that is custom bbcodes. I have seen this thread http://xenforo.com/community/threads/custom-bb-codes.66206/ but it relates to a version of xenForo that is not recommended for live use.

Right now I use phpBB3 and a custombb code of [smurfy][/smurfy] which basically parses a URL from a web site and displays a small image. I have played around with the live demo but can not get it to work with it, all I get is a blank post (http://d15b1081b78c858a.demo-xenforo.com/122/index.php?threads/smurfy-test.1/) Attached is how it is setup in the live demo, also how it is setup in phpBB3 currently. If I can get this solved then I will most likely be migrating away from phpbb3.

Version 1.3 has just been released as stable less than 30 minutes ago.
The demo hasn't yet been updated to 1.3.

The demo has been updated to 1.3, you should be able to mess with the Custom BB Codes now.

Thanks for the update Jeremy, I have tried playing with the new demo but still can not get it to work. When viewing the post I get what is in the attached picture.

Something was configured incorrectly. Glancing at your screenshots, it looks like you'll need a code callback, which isn't possibly in the demo. I guarantee you can do what you want in XF tho.

Sorry for the late reply, work has been murder. Thanks for the information, I think i will go a head and get xenforo and then post in the support section to try and get it working.
