bbPress2 BBCode

This plugin adds support for popular bbcode forum code to posts, comments, pages, bbpress 2.0 forums and buddypress activity and group forums.


  • Replaced support for "Viper's Video Quicktags" with support for the more simple "Video Audio BBCode" plugin. The former was causing conflicts with the shortcode whitelist.
  • All audio and video bbcodes moved to 'Video Audio BBCode' plugin.


  • Added support for buddypress private messages


  • Fixed bug that stopped the bbcode working in the BuddyPress activity stream.


  • Added support for [freesound] tag.
  • Added support for [user] tag to display content only to logged in users.
  • Added support for [guest] tag to display content only to non-logged in users.


  • Added support for buddypress activity updates
  • Added support for buddypress group forums


  • Added support for [video] tag in a way that enhances Viper's support. New tag auto detects if it contains a youtube or googlevideo url and tries to render as if it was a [youtube ] tag or [gvideo] tag if so. If Viper's is installed, it supports auto detecting all of the video quicktags that support urls before resorting to Viper's normal behaviour. Did this to support old posts imported from a Phorum forum that supported a generic [video] tag for youtube, googlevideo etc.


  • I can't actually remember what this version changed now, I forgot to add this note at the time! o.O Possibly this is the version where I allowed [googlevideo] as an alias for [gvideo]


  • Detects if Viper's Video Quicktags is installed, and if not supports [youtube ] and [gvideo] tags natively.
  • Improved code structure.


  • Added support for bbpress-shortcode-whitelist plugin


  • Fixed quote tags to work with multiple variations
  • If quote name matches a registered user's login name:
    • It replaces their user login name with their display name
    • Creates link to their profile page if buddypress is installed
    • else creates link to their bbpress forum page if bbpress is installed
  • Added css style classes to much of the output html to allow much fun custom styling...
  • Restored support for [gvideo] tag as no conflict with VVQ exists, since the latter uses a [googlevideo] tag instead.


  • Initial version. Fork from b0ingball bbcode.
  • Adds support for bbcode to bbpress
  • Fixes behaviour of [quote] and [url] tags
  • Temporarilly disables [youtube ] and [gvideo] tags to avoid conflict with Vipers Video Quicktags.
