    I haven't actually tried installing it on my 1.0 board yet; I should check that out.

    Just wanted to give the developer some feedback. I installed Transmogrifier in a brand new Vanilla 1 Forum, and it works perfectly. You can see the Forum at Esperantaj Retforumoj de AEA.

    This is a Forum about Esperanto, the international language. Esperanto uses some accented letters (ĉ, ŝ, ĝ, ĥ, ĵ and ŭ), which a lot of users have trouble finding a way to type, in their systems. Transmogrifier allowed me to use a 'cheat' - users can type specific letter-pair combinations, which are automagically 'converted' for display by Transmogrifier into their right Esperanto accented characters. For instance, the user can type "c^", and that will be displayed in their comment as "ĉ". This is fantastic! - and one of the main reasons why I ended up picking Vanilla over other web Forums.

    My only suggestion for improvement, would be better compatibility with the "Preview Post" extension - the one that puts the "Preview Post" button under the comment field. For some reason, the text displayed in the Preview is not transmogrified.

    Once again, many, many thanks - and keep up the good work!

    That's awesome; it's nice to know that it works with non-english characters and that people are finding creative uses for it.

    I'll check in on the Preview Post extension, to see what's wrong there.

    @Bergamot: could I ask for a *big*, *big* favour? - actually, it's more of a feature request...

    Right now, Transmogrifier changes ONLY the text inside comments. Would it be possible to have it work ALSO on the TITLE of the discussions - for instance, when listing the discussions in the main index page? The shortcuts I described above for typing the Esperanto characters are obviously not working when someone is starting a new discussion, and types the discussion title in...

    Also, this feature would be *extremely* useful for something else: in allowing people to replace the "Sticky", "Bookmarked", "Closed" and "Hidden" tags with small icons, as described in this discussion.

    Would that be very hard to do?

    Is there any way to get this extension to avoid converting text into a smilie if we use the html formatter?
  • Options
    Actually is it possible to only have the transmogrifier work with the bbcode formatter? So if the format is set to text or html it won't work?
  • Options
    @ADM: just edit the config file, to remove all 'smilies' replacements. You can configure Transmogrifier there, to replace exactly what you want, and leave the rest.Is this what you were asking? - if not, I'm not sure I understand the question...

    This could be a very useful plugin if it was a lttle bit more delicate. For example, I have used it to make HTML acronyms automatically - e.g. convert "peta" into peta. The problem is that when the word "peta" is in an URI, it will screw things up unfortunately, so I use it only for converting smileys.

    OT: @DraganBabic: Actually I find that when "peta" shows up anywhere things get all screwed up ;)

    icouto: No I mean I've got the problem that Dragan is having.. for example say I post some html and in the html is a :d or something then it'll convert to a smilie breaking the html. I don't want this to happen.. I only want it converting if the formatter is set to bbcode.

    I can't think of any easy way to do that, but that doesn't mean there isn't one.

    @ADM: this may be a silly suggestion, but here it goes: how about using a syntax for your smilies that will not be confused with normal character combinations found inside your html elements? Example: make it so that all your smilies have to be enclosed in square brackets - a syntax is similar to certain wikis - like: [:)] would get transmogrified, but just :) wouldn't. [:d] would get transmogrified, but just :d wouldn't. - etc... The only disadvantage is that you'd have to retrain your users to use the new syntax.

    Yeah I'd rather avoid something like that to be honest.

    Is there a site where I can get the common emoticons for free?

    What about the issue "icouto" already described:
    >> My only suggestion for improvement, would be better compatibility with the "Preview Post" extension - the one that puts the "Preview Post" button
    >> under the comment field. For some reason, the text displayed in the Preview is not transmogrified.
    I would also be interested in a PreviewPost integration of Transmogrifier. This means, the previewed posting should be transmogrified as well.

    That would require a modification of PreviewPost, though not a difficult one.

    Well, is it explained somewhere? I would be very grateful.

    Cheers

    @Bergamot: while we are considering improvements to your already-excellent Transmogrifier, could I ask you to comment, perhaps, on this request I made earlier?

    Transmogrifying more than just the text of comments would be amazingly useful!...
