    This has been such a missing aspect of any forum I have used to date, being the ability to discuss bbcode without it rendering and without having to use code inline boxes or such to render.

    Code:
    [PLAIN]This is not [B]bold[/B] text.[/PLAIN]
    To output: This is not [B]bold[/B] text.

    These small things just keep adding up: http://xenforo.com/community/help/bb-codes

    vBulletin had this too. Those were the [noparse] tags and they disabled BB-code too.

    I don't think a lot of people know this. It's in their misc.php?do=bbcode :cool:

    Well be buggered... and it still works in it too. Thanks Sador... nobody had ever suggested or pointed me in this direction before. This is the first forum I had seen it used.

    Clearly the option to strip empty BBCode hasn't been implemented yet ;)

    That wasn't an empty BB code. :)

    It wasn't? :p Care to elaborate on that?

    I assumed if nothing was in between the tags (regardless of the tags) then it's stripped.

    I think the code tag is fine for this :) - since it is essentially, code.
