BBCode Support in WordPress

BBCode is another markup language to format posts widely by forums, which is easier and clearer than HTML. WordPress provides a visual editor and some easy-to-use tools, but no built-in BBCode support. Let’s see how to add BBCode support in WordPress.

We can add BBCode support to WordPress with the BBCode plugin by bOingball that extends the BBCode plugin by Viper007Bond. As installing normal plugins, install BBCode and activate it. Then you can format your WordPress post with BBCode now.

For example, to have these following content:

The URL: Fclose.com

int main(int argc, char* args[])
{
    printf("Hello World!n");
    return;
}

The BBCode to generate the above content is:

The URL: [url="http://fclose.com/b/"]Fclose.com[/url]

<pre>
int main(int argc, char* args[])
{
    printf("Hello World!n");
    return;
}
</pre>

Pretty cool, right? Enjoy it ;)
