Easiest mod I've ever installed. laugh

Would there be a way to put more spacing around the quote and the reply area? When multple quotes are used the text gets so cramped it's kinda hard to read.... maybe a way to add tranparent gifs before and after the quoted field?

[edit] - figured this would be easier to understand with an example:

Too cramped:

Would help a lot:

s or was it

s to the quote translating code so there is gap after the quotes - been awhile - but it is possible

Sorry for the bad information it has just been awhile since I added the MOD.

Within the code for the header insert:

Code
<style type="text/css"> 
blockquote {
font-size: 9pt;
border: 1px solid #4577AB;
background: #FDF5E6;
color: black;
margin: 8px 20px;
padding: 0px 10px
}
blockquote .small {
background:#34669A;
color: white;
margin-left:-10px;
padding:1px 2px
}
blockquote hr {
visibility:hidden;
height:1px
}
blockquote br {
font-size:8px
}
a:visited {
text-decoration: none
}
a:link {
text-decoration: none
}
a:hover {
color: #008000;
font: italic;
text-decoration: none
}
a:active {
text-decoration: none
}
</style>
It is the padding that adds the spacing around the outside of the quote block.

The MOD as written has a padding of ZERO.

As you look over the code above you will see I increased it to 10px.

This is the code that gets inserted into the header insert section.

Which is located in the Style Template you are using for your board.

Oh and that is the first padding which sets up the padding around the outside of the entire quote block.

The next padding sets up the padding around the small quote: or code: set.

For those of you who would like different options for quotes and codes (such as a Christian board quoting the Bible) it is easy, using this MOD, to set up another code such as for my example I added a special tag for our users when quoting the Bible.

Code
[bible]add bible quote[/bible]
Which simply puts the words "Bible Quote" in the small block. As seen here: http://iambornagainru.org/cgi-bin/bab/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=3&t=000561#000002

It is nothing really, but offering your users a specialized quote or whatever can be very useful.

Or maybe you can use
Code
[bible=Ephesians 1:16]do not cease ...[/bible]
To make the ephesians 1:16 wording look more special?

Or of course, in the future (if someone can give me a vars file with the whole bible) we could make it [bible=Ephesians]1:16[/bible] and it will post the quote for you wink

LK this site ( http://www.bf.org/bfetexts.htm ) has several text files of various versions.

Can you take a look and see if they are useable? If not then let me know what needs to be changed and I'll do the work.

I made a version that works with "darbybib.zip" in that URL. It works with bbe.zip and av.zip as well, as long as you rename the extension to ".DBY".

Instructions: download the darbybib.zip file, and upload all its files to cgi-bin/bible dir.
open ubb_lib.cgi.
Find:
Quote
code:
Code
		$match++ if $_[0] =~ s/(
Quote
)(.+?)(
)(s|n|r)*/ </font><blockquote><font size="1" face="$vars_style{FontFace}">$vars_wordlets{ubbcode_quote}:</font><hr /><font size="$vars_style{TextSize}" face="$vars_style{FontFace}">$2</font><hr /></blockquote><font size="$vars_style{TextSize}" face="$vars_style{FontFace}">/isg;

Add below:
code:
[qb]
Code
		$match++ if $_[0] =~ s/[BIBLE=([A-Za-z0-9s]+)](d+):(d+)[/BIBLE]/&bible($1,$2,$3)/eisg;
[/qb]
Find:
Quote
code:
Code
} # end listize

Add below:
code:
[qb]
Code
sub bible {
my ($a, $b, $c) = @_;
$a =~ s/^(.*?)$/U$1E/;
if (&FileExists("$vars_config{CGIPath}/bible/$a.DBY")) {
my $file = &OpenFileAsString("$vars_config{CGIPath}/bible/$a.DBY");
if ($file =~ m/$b:$c /) {
$file =~ s/(.*?)$b:$c//isg;
$d = $b+1; $e = $c+1;
$file =~ s/$d:1(.*?)$//isg; $file =~ s/$b:$e(.*?)$//isg;
return &ConvertReturns($file);
}
}
return "[BIBLE=$a] $b:$c [/BIBLE]";
}
[/qb]
Then use
Quote
code:
Code
Quote
[bible=EPH]1:16[/bible]

Result:
code:
[qb]
Code
do not cease giving thanks for you, making mention [of you]
at my prayers,
[/qb]
Note: if you give me a list of all long names (like John) with their short form (like JOH) I can make it so you can type [bible=John] instead of [bible=joh]...

After we get it to work like that, I'll make it like you want it to be if you wish - like [quote] but with "Bible Quote" and make the name more emphasized

Edit: now it works with darbybib.zip instead of bbe.zip cause I think it's better.. Note: I haven't tested it since I modified it to read .dby, so lemme know if it doesn't work

Wow...a newbie coding guide no, huh? laugh

I didn't understand a thing, could someone explain me, clearly, slowly and with a lot of patience? I want these quote and code boxes, with the "quote" word surrounded by another color (like this one in ubbdev wink ).

I installed a lot of hacks on my ubb, but I didn't understand a thing with this code! eek

What files have I to modify? Where and WHAT codes have I to insert? I have UBB.classic 6.2.1.

Thanks a lot smile

I tried your code, but there is a bug: , not wink

With "/ only" I obtained an error...ubb was unable to load. I added that inv.slash and it worked.

Here's my headerinsert code:

code:
[qb]
Code
<style type="text/css"> blockquote {  font-size: 9pt;  border: 1px solid #c3c3c3;  background: #f6f6f6;  color: black;  margin: 8px 20px;  padding: 0px 10px}blockquote .small {  background:#c3c3c3;  color: black;  margin-left:-10px;  padding:1px 2px}blockquote hr {  visibility:hidden;  height:1px}blockquote br {  font-size:10px}</style>
[/qb]
Tnx a lot LK!

All done, the mod works perfectly thanks to LK.
He went the extra mile going into my bins and fixing the bugs right down to the root.

This community should be happy having such a man around.

I have a wierd problem after adding this hack.

If you try to edit a post that has a quote in it you end up with this in the edit window

My line in ubb_lib.cgi looks like this
$match++ if $_[0] =~ s/(

$vars_wordlets{ubbcode_quote}:

yes, you need to take that
out, the code that converts ubbcode to html has to match the code that converts the html back to ubb code smile

Adjusting the css will give you the space you are wanting smile

I am not sure would I post this question, please move if this is not the right location.

A weird thing happened.
After installing Advanced UBB I lost the small blue background of "quote" box.

Can see the example HERE , a comparison between Quote and Code.

Any idea what should I do?
Thank you

Okay, now for an entirely NEW question... How in the heck can I partially disable the [QB], so that it is inserted into to top of each quote, where it says, "Originally posted by ???:"..?

It's really annoying to have the complete quote in bold print! wink

After a bit of beating my head against a wall, I finally figured it out! smash

My quotes now look like this, except I have the bold text underlined as well... Just add and inside the and references. The additional "n" adds the line spacing between the header and the text body.

Quote
quote:
Orginally posted by ????:

This is the body of the text blah, blah, blah.
Note the blank line between the header and the text body!

If anyone (for any reason) is interested, the following is what I did.


ubb_new_reply.cgi

Replace with:

Oh, I see how you're gonna be now...

My board is currently DOA, as it is undergoing a server upgrade, so I can't actually test anything for you.

This will probably be wrong (but headed in one of the right directions[/i]), but since I'm claiming idiot status beforehand, I should get an exemption from public ridicule and floggings... wink

If it actually worked, this would require you to preset a specific hex code for your color tag.
[code][/code]I told you earlier, that I'm just an idiot that gets lucky every now and again, so before you start laughing and pointing fingers at me, I'm gonna run away and hide under my favorite rock!

I have a question for those who like to play. laugh

I'm thinking of installing this into my board, but I notice that the quote box is right up against the next piece of text.

Example:

Quote
quote:
How can I get
spacing between the quote box & this?

I'd love to see at least one, if not two, line breaks.

Thanks. help

[edit to ask: how on earth did that little quote skew this page so badly?! eek ]

Okay, Allen, I think what you suggested worked w/in the box, but now I'm trying to address the spacing outside of the box.

Here's a snapshot:

Is this making any sense? tipsy laugh
