Post subject: How do i install custom BB codes?

Hi guys! I really really wanna know how to install custom BBcodes. My board requires lots of image linking, and i want to have a code in the posting area that when clicking, a bb code comes up and all i have to do is type image for image.png to appear.

For example, to make http://myboard.com/image.png show up, it will be [image]image[/image] in bb code.

Does anyone know how i can do this? icon_smile.gif

When I want to add new bbcodes I usually follow rant_bbcode and change things to get the desired effects. It doesn't seem to be on phpBB Hacks, so here it is attached.

I'm sorry, i should have mentioned that i am a total newbie at this. Would you mind providing detailed instructions? I installed easymod, but i couldn't get the mod to show up in my admin panel, so i tried doing it manually. Thing is, i'm not using subsilver as my template, rather i'm using Mike Lotham's NB2. Also, i installed the Advanced BBcode box so some of the mod steps couldn't be carried out.

Also, how exactly does rant_bbcode work? How would i go about adding in bbcode after i successfully install the mod?

Thanks so much for responding!

Well I've never really used rant_bbcode as it was intended, but as far as I can remember it basically copies the Quote bbcode but calls it Rant instead. So you get a different font in a box

like such.

It's used the same as the basic codes, but I'm guessing Advanced BBCode Box alters that greatly, so I can't really tell you how to add a custom code to it. Maybe you could follow Google Video and YouTube BBCode (Advanced BBCode Box) as a guide instead of rant_bbcode, but it's so old that it might not even work anymore (those features are now included in ABB).
