I discovered something weird about the quote thing, and secondly I have two suggestions for the quote thing.

The weird part;

When I inserted some text and selected then click the "parse as quote", I then clicked cancel on the popup, but then it removed my text and replaced it with my clipboard.

Suggestion 1: When you click cancel on the popup, is it possible that it will just write
CODE
[quote]

instead of
CODE
[quote=null]

?

Suggestion 2: In order to make it easier for users to insert dates/users in quotes, how about
CODE
Svip|I love pie

turned into
CODE
[quote=Svip]I love pie[/quote]

so it wont ask for the attribute.

you indeed stumbled upon a bug, cancelation of the quote popu isn't correctly handled as it seems. Thanx for reporting it, it will be fixed in the next release.

About your suggestion, this could work.. but only when applying the quote tag to a selection.
I'm not sure it wil make the next release, but I'll keep in in consideration.

Everyone is free to use whichever extension they like best, that's one of the strong points of FireFox/Thunderbird. And if you like multiple extensions, you can easily use them both.
The main difference between my extension and BBcodeXtra, is that mine include all the custom-BBcode tags that this forum supports.

Concerning:
  • pasting from clipboard;
    that is included in my GTAFcode also, the only option that I didn't implement, as I didn't seem usefull to me, is "paste as list".
  • number of features;
    BBcodeXtra does indeed have the HTML/XHTML tags, which I deliberatly skipped, but when it comes to BBcode, BBcodeXtra doesn't have all the options GTAFcode has. Also advanced features like, list/table building and cursor/selection handling are not supported by BBcodeXtra.

Since this is based on the BBCode extension, any chance of adding the Custom feature that BBCode has?

download the .xpi file
rename to .zip
extract it
open install.rdf
find the maxVersion bit
change to something large like 2.0
put the modified install.rdf back into the archive
rename back to .xpi
drag onto the extensions window in firefox.

After I posted that I found the Nightly Testers Tools extension which converted it fine. So yeah I basically did that.

For those that are less adventureous....

I've updated this extension, to be compatible with the latest FireFox version (1.5).
Sadly they won't host it on the official mozzila extension site anymore, as they consider it "promotional" now sad.gif ..

Therefor you won't get an automatic update notice,
and you'll have to install the new version of gtafcode (v0.3.0) manually from my site.

New
Some minor bugs have been solved, and a nifty "break-quote" has been added.
Select a spot in a quote where you want to add some comment, than selection the special->break-quote, will insert a
CODE
[/quote][quote=continued]
pair, which enable you to put your comments in between.

I haven't included BBcode's Custom feature (yet)

BTW
Sorry for the long pause in posting on the forums, but I've been lurking in silence ph34r.gif

I havn't used this before (because I'm a hardcore coder...honest) but some of the new features look really useful.

(EDIT) Some parts of it could be improved. For example, instead of basing data input on strings being entered into input boxes, you could make the extension use a proper control. I imagine this would be very complicated, but having a window with an actual list control into which you could add, remove and re-order items would be a lot easier to use. Similarly, using a window which had a grid control would make table creation much easier.

If you have a Web Developer Extension, a simpler version of its interface would be good:

I'd offer to make it myself but I've got way too many projects going already.

You've missed out a few small things, such as the [me] tags having an optional attribute, as shown above. smile.gif

Is Mozilla still being a bitch about you putting it on the official add-on site? Seems like most of the popular extensions on there could be "promotional" (Gmail Manager anyone).

Well I did see the earlier version back on there soon after it was removed. Oh and about the Gmail Manager, remember Google and Firefox are linked these days tounge.gif .

Someone should PM him, seeing as he hasn't posted since October, but he was active today. I made the switch to FF yesterday and this does look interesting.

You can update it yourself smile.gif
Taken from: https://developer.mo...s_for_Firefox_3
QUOTE
Update the install manifest
The first step -- and, for most extensions, the only one that will be needed -- is to update the install manifest file, install.rdf, to indicate compatibility with Firefox 3.

Simply find the line indicating the maximum compatible version of Firefox (which, for Firefox 2, might look like this):

<em:maxVersion>2.0.*</em:maxVersion>
Change it to indicate compatibility with Firefox 3:

<em:maxVersion>3.0.*</em:maxVersion>
Then reinstall your extension.

Note that Firefox 3 does away with the extra ".0" in the version number, so instead of using "3.0.0.*, you only need to use "3.0.*".


Basically, download the extension, rename the file extension .xpi to .zip and extract, open install.rdf and change the maxVersion line to say 3, save the file and then compress the chrome folder and the other files into a zip folder, change the folder extension to .xpi and re-install.
