hey there I relise there's probably a few threads on here but theres none that answer my question.

I have been writing a script for my web site where users can write in a thread and get the thread to display onto the main page, because this is done through a forum, I have to write up a bbcode script, I have some of the basic's done already however i'm stuck on the url's and email's could someone give me a hand?

here's the code I have so fare.

function bbcode($msg){
    $msg = str_replace("[b]", "<b>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/b]", "</b>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[i]", "<i>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/i]", "</i>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[u]", "<u>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/u]", "</u>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[s]", "<s>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/s]", "</s>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[move]", "<marquee>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/move]", "</marquee>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[img]", "<img src=\"", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/img]", "\"/>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[table]", "<table>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/table]", "</table>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[tr]", "<tr>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/tr]", "</tr>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[td]", "<td>", $msg);

    $msg = str_replace("[list]", "<ol>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/list]", "</ol>", $msg);

    //preformatted text
    $msg = str_replace("[pre]", "<pre>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("[/pre]", "</pre>", $msg);

    $msg = str_replace("", "<div style='text-align:left'>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("", "</div>", $msg);  
    $msg = str_replace("", "<div style='text-align:center'>", $msg);
    $msg = str_replace("", "</div>", $msg);

    $msg = str_replace(":'(", "<img src='http://pagancentral.org/smf/Smileys/default/cry.gif'>", $msg);

 return ($msg);

You've messed up the code with bbcode!

urls have at least 2 elements: href and the content. So a bbcode for an url would be:

replace url=href with <a href="href"> and the ending /url with </a>


hey there, that works kinda, but when I put the code in and view it on a beta page it only links to http:// or gives out a link back to my test folder where I store my test scripts. and not where it should go to in the thread.
