[font] bb code


Recommended Posts

I've been trying to create a bb code for my site which would allow the attributes color, size and face, but and can't really think of any way it would work. Most of my regex is guesswork so I'm struggling with this a bit.

The tag wouldn't strictly need any attributes and could be in any particular order, so it would be a lot like the html <font> tag.


If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. here's what I have so far:


$string = preg_replace('/\[font([\sface|\ssize|\scolor\]=](.+?)(\]|\s)+)/i','',$string);


The bit where I've stumbled is the second parameter. I'm not really where I'd go from there. Anyway, if you can help me, cheers!

I have it almost exactly how I want it, but I need to change something.


$string = preg_replace('/\[font((\scolor|\ssize|\sface)=\"(.+?)\")\]/i','<font\\1>',$string);


In most respects, this works, although font size doesn't work in some browsers so I think I'll have to somehow replace it for its CSS equivalent. Does anyone know I can do this? Cheers

I have a bb code setup and did it like this:


$simple_search = array(    

$simple_replace = array(    
                '<span style="font-family: $1;">$2</span>',  
                '<span style="font-size: $1;">$2</span>',  
                '<span style="color: $1;">$2</span>',  

$text = preg_replace ($simple_search, $simple_replace, $text);



Hope this helps  ;)
