Also useful for really long bug reports and such...

Actually, if you'd all just wise-up and use Prosilver, it's implementation of the

 tag automatically limits the height of code blocks to 200px and provides a scrollbar if it gets taller than that.

Oh, FYI: The current [hide] tag is probably going to supplant the current [spoilers] tag. Things might get hairy for a little bit.

I have one suggestion: allow the user to define what text is displayed next to the show/hide buttons (to state the purpose which would otherwise have text before it), but use "Spoilers!" as a default, due to previous uses.

Ach, that'd be dandy. Ye' know, like a quote tag, mayhaps? [hide][/ hide] creates a box with the normal "Spoiler!" or such, and [hide=Here's a title][/ hide] for alternate text.

I'm sure there's a way to do that, but I honestly don't know how one would put conditionals in a custom BBCode.

I'll do a little research, but if someone knows, I'd be more than grateful for a link of some sort. ;)

I don't suppose it's possible to peek at the code of the quote tag? Google refuses to produce the bacon for me.

I just imagined that you could use your Moderating magic and poof! It would be so... ;)

By the by: that's a dashing new signature you have there. Looks like a bonny game, too.

yay, i kept getting this stupid 1040 error :(

and now im not gunna drink water often when im on my computer, i just spilt water on my wireless keyboard and camera :(

now its all, wierd.

Pull the batteries out of it and let it dry! Don't use it for a day or two. Blow hot air on it if you can. It'll still work again, but you can't use it in the meantime.

That's only for plugin developers. The only thing it means for you is that if plugin authors ignore these rules, their plugins will either vanish from the forum or stop working in subsequent versions of the program.

Now, I remember you saying something about wanting to write plugins. If that's still true, I'd recommend you read through those rules before you start programming. :-)

Paste this code into stylish to have that in subsilver2:

[code]@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("paintdotnet.forumer.com") {

.codecontent { height:200px; overflow:auto; }

}

Most of my plugins break at least one of these rules.

Some of my plugins probably couldn' even work without breaking the first one (many use rendering code in OnSetRenderInfo()). :(

But, at least I don't make dot net cry (like some developers). ;)

I should post the source to CustomBrushes to The Daily WTF. :shock:

Essentially, if I'm going to pull someone's plugin then it's more fair to them that there's a list of rules they could've consulted ahead of time. Compare that to requiring everyone to be psychic, "I wonder what would make Rick pull my plugin..."

good that answers my second question " who was going to police dog the plugins." I'm going out on a limb but will they be reviewed and given a Rick stamp of approval before being released to the general paint.net public.

A list of those currently needing adjustment would be good. That way I can pull them from my system now and hold in an interm file for useage as required, until the new version is up and running.

I certainly do not want to deal with computor meltdown because of faulty plugins.
