  • advanced custom BBcode help

    Hi guys,

    i'm working on adding a new BBCode to one of my sites.

    Here's what i want to do:

    I want to take an abbreviation that is unique to my niche, and convert it to display an image.

    Say, I have [chart]ABC[/chart]

    i want this to convert to <img src="/charts/a/abc.jpg" alt="" />

    and [chart]DEF[/chart] would be
    <img src="/charts/d/def.jpg" alt="" />

    as they are directoried by the first letter.

    Is there a way to grab just the first letter of the string inserted into the bbcode block, and also to make it lowercase (as DEF.jpg doesn't exist on linux, on def.jpg does)

    Sorry, that's not possible without a bit of code modification.
