BBCode For Username HTML Markup 1.3.1

No permission to download

This product is designed to allow your users to easily display usernames with their currently chosen HTML markup in posts, private messages, visitor messages and group messages. Upon installation, a new BBCode is created, and a button added to your editor toolbar, which generates [UNM][/UNM] tags, short for UserName Markup.


Then by placing a valid username of a member of your forum within these tags, their name will display using the currently chosen display group of that user. You are given the option for the marked up usernames to link to profiles.



Version 1.1:

  • Support for signatures added (includes edit previewing).

Version 1.2:

  • Added setting option for marked up usernames to link to profiles.

Version 1.2.1:

  • Bug fixed regarding mix of valid and invalid usernames in the same content.

Version 1.3:

  • SEO friendly links to user profiles.
  • vBulletin's intrinsic username markup function used.
  • Username matching is now case-insensitive.

Version 1.3.1:

  • Bug fix for usernames with special characters.


Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and should work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.
