This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



The plugin is pretty simple in nature and allows you to fully create BBcode to use in the content of your wordpress blog.

I would highly recommend that you view through the FAQ section of this page (although most should be able to use it in a matter of seconds with no problems).

I’m busy, but if you donate I’ll find time to convert my current CMS’s formatter to WordPress (imagine this plugin supporting Textile/Markdown/BBcode with a very simple editor).


  • A list of all BBcode you've made (these are the default ones included)


  1. Upload bbcode-w-editor.php and bbcode.xml to the /wp-content/plugins/bbcode-w-editor directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

NOTE: When version 1.1+ comes out users will have to rename default_bbcode.xml to bbcode.xml or WordPress will produce errors. This is for the simple fact I do not want to overwrite the bbcode.xml with the auto update.


How do I add my own BBcode?

Please look under the Settings > BBcode.

How do I get the blogs URL into a tag?


Please ask and I will add any predefined variables like above in.

Are there BBcode Examples?

Below are a few simple ones:

URL Type 1

Tag (input):
HTML (output):

URL Type 2

Tag (input):
HTML (output):


Tag (input):
HTML (output):

Youtube (SWFobject might be best, but meh)

Tag (input):

HTML (output):

I’ll be sure to edit this later, but once you get the general idea you can basically just add your own.
