Would the "func_detail" be turned into a link if I had a word like: gm_func_detailedmap ?

Yes, unless they work in some feature to only pick matches isolated by whitespaces, line breaks, and some specific other characters probably including period, comma, colon, semicolon, hyphen, and apostrophe. Perhaps the system should have a built-in feature for handling plural form, or people will just have to write func_detail's with an apostrophe. Is that the right way to do it in English, by the way? Apparently, you don't use apostrophes for plural abbreviations in English (CDs rather than CD's) as opposed to Danish.

atm yes, tho its easy to search and replace [space]func_entity[space] instead. Though that would be problematic for entities right after or before enters and dots and comma's.

still who cares if it becomes gmfunc_detailedmap?

On the other hand...

Today, when i was cycling with my best friend (hes a professional cycler) i saw a house being hit by lightning. It was awesome!

It's sort of a backwards solution... But hey, it's how WL Messenger works (except the vanilla version doesn't even support this kind of smiley disabling) :)

Just testing... func_detail [vdc]func_detail[/vdc] [vdc=func_detail]func_detail[/vdc]
So, any news on this? Has any decisions been made?

Well, I'm a mushroom cloud layin' motherfucker, motherfucker!
But seriously, I have no idea what you're talking about.

I just hope Blink will decide what to do soon.

I have read this thread. I like the idea for the VDC tag and the text highlighting for different entities is cool, but as pointed out, it could be quite annoying when it did it to words that weren't intended.

I was thinking about maybe limiting it to the help forum only or something, as people are most likely to find it of benefit there.

I'm away this week but I'll ponder it further when I return.

Great idea by the way :)

[vdc=func_detail]func_detail[/vdc]

Something like this would be extremly easy I belive, it would be done in html through the bbcode system.

Hey, do you guys want something like this?

Just made the bbcode. It fixes the problem of zombie@computer's method currently has.

Look at the two posts for examples, I also posted the bbcode source their as well, so if the Admins choose to do this, they don't need to do any work, besides copy and pasting.

Crap, didn't even notice that.

I guess we will see who's will be used, if ether of ours. Zombie might still end up using his php script.

I still think the easiest choice would be [vdc]func_breakable[/vdc]. Less fragile magic. (That said, I'm completely in favor of non-fragile magic.)

has anyone thought about using [vdc]func_test[/vdc] tags? Seems easiest to me.
