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.



I’ve created a mod of the excellent BBCode pluging by Viper007Bond.

Since Vipers Plugin didn’t support some BBCode commands I thought I would add them since I need them in my buddypress installation.

This plug-in now supports all of the standard BBcode options.
