Is there a sandbox?

Post by RockDoctor »

Is there a sandbox area for fiddling with this implementation of BBCode/ PHPBB ?
I'm toying with the "color" tag and wanted to check and post a HOWTO, but I don't see a sandbox.
HOWTO : text colour
The "color" tag is

Code: Select all

[color=ColourValue]Text([/color(]
A ColourValue may be either an RGB hextet (#123456 for digits in 0..F) or a text string. A partial list of recognised strings is below, with their equivalent hextets.
(Partial) List
Azure, 0000FF
Blue, 0000FF
Brown, A52A2A
Cyan, 00FFFF
Darkblue, 00008B
Darkcyan, 008B8B
Darkgreen, 006400
Darkorange, FF8C00
Darkred, 8B0000
Deepskyblue, 00BFFF
Fuchsia, FF00FF
Gold, FFD700
Gray, 808080
Green, 008000
Lightcyan, E0FFFF
Lightgreen, 90EE90
Lightgrey, D3D3D3
Magenta, FF00FF
Maroon, 800000
Mediumblue, 0000CD
Navy, 000080
Olive, 808000
Orange, FFA500
Orangered, FF4500
Palegreen, 98FB98
Paleturquoise, AFEEEE
Purple, 800080
Red, FF0000
Silver, C0C0C0
Teal, 008080
Turquoise, 40E0D0
Violet, EE82EE
White, FFFFFF
Yellow, FFFF00


If there's a snadbox, shouldn't there be a "HOWTO" thread too. Hopefully after each guide has been debugged.

I'm going to try a revision :

HOWTO : text colour
The tag is (open.sq.bracket)color=ColourValue(close.sq.bracket)Text(open.sq.bracket)/color(close.sq.bracket
A partial list of colours recognised is below. You can also directly specify an RGB hextet with #123456 in place of a ColourValue text string.
[blah blah, snipped)
Would the CODE tag allow me to write (open.sq.braces) without triggering the BBCode background?

Code: Select all

open bracket [ close ] end
Yes, it does.
