    I would like to extend XenForo_ViewPublic_Helper_Message so that I may add my own code to the bbCodeWrapMessages function.

    public static function bbCodeWrapMessages(array &$messagesXenForo_BbCode_Parser $parser, array $options = array())
    $options += array(
    'showSignature' => XenForo_Visitor::getInstance()->get('content_show_signature'),
    'states' => array()

        foreach (
    $messages AS &$message)
    $message['messageHtml'] = XenForo_ViewPublic_Helper_Message::getBbCodeWrapper($message$parser$options);

    // I would like to add code here

    It isn't possible because that class is called statically. It can't be extended.

    Do you find another solution or workaround?

    I would also like to know possible workarounds for this please.

    I'm trying to add my own message filter to bbCodeWrapMessages before getBbCodeWrapper is called, or is there somewhere else better I can do this?

      public static function bbCodeWrapMessages(array &$messages, XenForo_BbCode_Parser $parser, array $options = array())
         $options += array(
           'showSignature' => XenForo_Visitor::getInstance()->get('content_show_signature'),
           'states' => array()
         foreach ($messages AS &$message)
           $message['message'] = XenForo_ViewPublic_Helper_Message::MyFilter($message['message']);
           $message['messageHtml'] = XenForo_ViewPublic_Helper_Message::getBbCodeWrapper($message, $parser, $options);

    Changed my plans, I found that XenForo_BbCode_Formatter_Base is extendable and the preFilterText function is much better for my purpose.
