making bbPress (and WordPress) work better!

new plugin: bbPress Signatures

Adds signatures with ZERO template modifications required.

updated to v0.13 – now with admin menu!
(rename .txt to .php)

If you have plugins for smilies and/or allow images in post text, it will obey them, this is probably a good thing and desired.

You can set the minimum user level needed to show signatures and also the ability not to repeat a user’s signature more than once per page.

Instructions: install, activate, tinker with settings in admin menu

If you would like the optional toggle on new/edit posts to disable signatures you must edit the edit-form.php & post-form.php templates and place at or near the bottom:
<? bb_signatures_checkbox(); ?>

(you can wrap it in a DIV and float it to the left, right style anyway you’d like
sorry but there’s no way to do this directly through a plugin)

Here’s a fancier version that I use:
<div style=”float:left” ><? if (function_exists(‘bb_signatures_checkbox’)) {bb_signatures_checkbox();} ?></div>

Version History:
0.05 :slashes & autop fixed, replaced input with textarea, max_lines now supported in post-processing, max_length checked in realtime (as well as post processing)
0.06 :internal testing/bugfix
0.07 :per-post signature toggle
0.08 :toggle for allow html and allow images should now work
0.10 :basic functioning admin menu
0.11 :more intelligent admin menu

    This works great!

    HTML would be nice as it’s a weightloss forum so people will want trackers and stuff, but as a basic sig its really good!

  2. Actually, it should allow whatever tags you have allowed in regular posts?

    It’s kind of a security issue to allow all html.

    If you install the “allow images” plugin, it should allow images in the signatures. Keep in mind, there are no checks for size, shape, etc.
