BBCode Plugin

Add basic BBCode input/output support to TinyMCE.

Contribute to this page

This plugin makes it possible to edit BBCode in a WYSIWYG style by converting tags like [b] into <strong> and then back, when user submits the content.

You will need to sacrifice quite a lot of TinyMCE's functionality to use this plugin properly, since BBCode format doesn't support the whole HTML specification.

Type: String

Example
tinymce.init({
  selector: "textarea",  // change this value according to your HTML
  plugins: "bbcode"
});

Options

bbcode_dialect

This option allows you to specify the BBCode dialect. We only support PunBB at the moment but hope to add more dialects in the future. Suported tags are listed in the table below:

BBCode Description HTML equivalent
[b]...[/b] Bold text <strong>...</strong>
[i]...[/i] Italicize text </em>...</em>
[u]...[/u] Underline text <u>...</u>
[url=...]...[/url] Link <a href="...">...</a>
[img]...[/img] Image <img src="..." />
[color=...]...[/color] Color text <font color="...">...</font>
[code]...[/code] Code <span class="codeStyle">...</span>
[quote]...[/quote] Quote <span class="quoteStyle">...</span>
\n Newline <br />

When using PunBB dialect, codeStyle and quoteStyle will be converted to [code] and [quote] correspondingly.

Type: String

Default Value: "punbb"

Example
tinymce.init({
  selector: "textarea",  // change this value according to your HTML
  plugins: "bbcode",
  bbcode_dialect: "punbb"
});
