blink BB Code


Staff member

[blink]This is blinking text.[/blink] It now works in all major browsers!!!

To use this simply put text inside [NOBB][blink] and [/blink][/NOBB] tags.

[NOBB][blink]Example: :pirate:[/blink][/NOBB] =
[blink]Example: :pirate:[/blink]

You may need to refresh the page to see the blinking effect after submitting your post.

Note: BLINK will not work in the "JUOT Express" styles because the JavaScript required will not be downloaded. For JUOT Express, and anyone blocking JavaScript text will appear as normal (not-blinking).

This makes use of the jquery javascript library.

Step 1. Download the attachment, unzip, and upload the 2 .js files it to your /clientscript/ directory. (This may be under /forums/clientscript/ or any other directory you have your forums installed in.)

Step 2. Admin CP -> Styles and Templates -> Style Manger -> Choose your style(s) -> All Style Options: Edit your header include template and add the following code at the bottom of it:
<!-- Start Blinking Text jquery Script-->
<script src="/forums/clientscript/jquery-1.4.2.min.js" language="javascript" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="/forums/clientscript/jquery-blink.js" language="javscript" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
<!-- End Blinking Text jquery Script-->
Make sure you change the file paths to the two .js files to match your directory setup. For me it's "/forums/clientscript/filename.js" If your forums are in your web root your location may be just "/clientscript/filename.js".

3. Add a new BBCode

Title: Blink
BB Code Tag Name: blink
<span class="blink">{param}</span>
Example: [NOBB][blink]test blink[/blink][/NOBB]
Description: This code makes text Blink in IE, FF, and Opera
Use Option: No
Button Image: (optional) attached.
Remove Tag If Empty: Yes
All Disable Options: No

You can have line-breaks in this code...
line 1
line 2
works just as well as: [blink]line 1. line 2.[/blink][/NOBB]
