Improved list button in forum post form
« on: October 22, 2005, 09:45:09 PM »
after cutting my teeth on some javascript this afternoon to obfuscate emails/donation links to protection them from email spam harvester bots, i decided to improve the listbotton in the forum post editor.

now if you type a long list of lines, you can simply select them, and hit the list button (its the one that looks like a bunch of bullet point, far bottom right), and a list will be made from them with each one bulleted.

e.g. type this:
item1
item2
item3
item4
item5
item6
item7


then select those lines 1-7
and hit the list/bulleting button to get this:
[list]
[li]item1[/li]
[li]item2[/li]
[li]item3[/li]
[li]item4[/li]
[li]item5[/li]
[li]item6[/li]
[li]item7[/li]
[/list]


which looks like this when posted:
  • item1
  • item2
  • item3
  • item4
  • item5
  • item6
  • item7
