    I decided to start up a suggestion for this considering it was buried in another suggestion:

    Nice suggestion, but first we should learn how the bbcode system works.

    I don't think there is a system at this point. There might be one in the future and if it's like the plugin system where we can import xml files to add plugins it would be great.

    I'd love to be able to import/export BBCodes as XML. XML is definitely awesome at being flexible and letting you add any elements you like!

    Why wouldn't there be a system to handle BBcodes or that it won't ship with one? There's a phrase system and style system. It seems natural there's a BBcode system too, and that it's what helps create the BBcode help page.

    There's no custom BB code system currently. The BB code help page is built (semi-)manually.

    I'm guessing this is on the to-do list?

    well i assume something like /domain/bbcode.php?do=bbcode would work as (correct me if i'm wrong) if there is bbcodes in a table somewhere they probably can be rendered into a page with a designated style with not too much of a headache for someone who is capable of coding this and simply add a tab to the navigation bar after.

    I have a feeling Kier and Mike will do this eventually, especially considering vBulletin has misc.php?do=bbcode as a BBCode page :)

    yup:) that's where my logic originated.

    That page was created semi-manually. What this suggestion is for is to be able to export the BBCodes into another file format then be able to re-import them, useful if you have to redo your forum from scratch.
