Problem with Vanilla NBBC-parser


Can i ask something about the Vanilla NBBC-parser? (https://github.com/vanilla/nbbc/releases/tag/v2.2.3)

I have installed it with composer, and it works for the most part. But the Callback is doesn't working in PHP 7.2. In the example of the callback, i have used the autoloader in sttead of the old nbbc.php.

Simple tags are working, but the callback doenst working.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

   require_once(__DIR__ . "/../vendor/autoload.php");
   use Nbbc\BBCode;

   $input = "[b]BOLD[/b] [border color=red size=3]This text is in a medium red border![/border]\n"
      . "[border size=10]This text is in a fat blue border![/border]\n"
      . "[border color=green]This text is in a normal green border![/border]\n";

   $bbcode = new BBCode();

   function MyBorderFunction($bbcode, $action, $name, $default, $params, $content) {
      if ($action == 'BBCODE_CHECK') {
         if (isset($params['color'])
            && !preg_match('/^#[0-9a-fA-F]+|[a-zA-Z]+$/', $params['color']))
            return false;
         if (isset($params['size'])
            && !preg_match('/^[1-9][0-9]*$/', $params['size']))
            return false;
         return true;

      $color = isset($params['color']) ? $params['color'] : "blue";
      $size = isset($params['size']) ? $params['size'] : 1;
      return "<div style=\"border: {$size}px solid $color\">$content</div>";

   $bbcode->AddRule('border', Array(
      'mode' => 'BBCODE_MODE_CALLBACK',
      'method' => 'MyBorderFunction',
      'class' => 'block',
      'allow_in' => Array('listitem', 'block', 'columns'),

   $output = $bbcode->Parse($input);

   print "<div class='bbcode'>$output</div>";


Bold is parsed als a bold text, but the callback for MyBorderFunction is doesn't working, and not parsed.

    Hi, be carefull here It's not BBCode, use the "Code" Burton in the editor to show us your code.

    Yet I didn't understood what you tried to do here. Are you trying to use this functuion outside Garden?

  • Hello, i want to place this NBBC UBB-parser in my own application. But the call-back functions doesn't working.
