Can the strikethrough BBCode token be activated? That's the "" token.

Done.

There isn't actually an option you can "activate".

Luckily I am smart enough that I was able to find the place where you can set up custom BB code, as well as figure out how to program it.

Awesome, thanks. Used it here: http://exrx.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1 ... 7&start=31" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Do I dare request one more that I think many people would appreciate? A "pre" tag that becomes the HTML tag PRE. This makes text fixed-width, which would be very convenient when people are trying to enter journals and programs. (And, no, I don't have a "just one more request..." and "just one more request..." after that)

EDIT: If I had known you could program these, I would have asked for PRE also, I thought you had to "activate" pre-existing tags and did not know you could program them in. Didn't mean to take your time asking for them one at a time like that.

I'll have to look up the pre thing. I'm not entirely sure what that is.

The programming should be the same as strikethrough. The letters "pre" in square-bracket BBCode would become the HTML tag "pre" in greater-than/less-than brackets.

Anything inside PRE is in monotype, which lets you space stuff out. So instead of trying to do this:

Monday Wednesday Friday
Squat.......Dead........Squat
Bench........Press......Bench

...you can just wrap it up in PRE tags and it works perfectly. We have something close to this and it is called "code", but that tag assumes you are doing computer code and it makes everything green, like this:

Code: Select all

Monday  Wednesday  Friday
Squat   Deadlift   Squat
Bench   Press      Bench

This one did not work the way the others did. You'll have to give me some code for this one. I can see phpBB has some version that is green. However I am not at all familiar with this pre thing.

OK, I'll see what I can dig up.

I'm one minor version behind the latest one released a couple months ago. I will upgrade eventually when I time to make sure it won't overwrite my mods.

Unless it would take too much work (ie: if it is very very simple) can you set up the [youtube] [/youtube] to embed vids?

If it is too much trouble, no worries.
