Parsing BBCode


Well-known member
Is there a way in the template to parse BBCode, like xen:raw parses HTML?

I have a pagenode which runs a query on the post table using a callback, and I want to parse the BBCode.

You will need to check it out in more detail, but essentially if you can pass the BB code parser as a parameter to the template ( I think ) then you can do something like this:

{xen:helper bbCode, $bbCodeParser, $content.message}

EDIT: I said "I think". I might be wrong. You may very well just be able to use $bbCodeParser in the template without passing it.

Check it out. It's used on the BB Code Help page so you could check out XenForo_ControllerPublic_Help
