HTML description for files in downloads section

Recommended Posts

Hi, I meant to ask if it is possible to enable us to choose HTML or BB code for description of our files?

 

It's not that I want to do something with HTML there, it's just that Stronghold Heaven has HTML descriptions, and if I wanted to submit my files I uploaded there before, I could simply copy the code (and do some minor corrections perhaps).

This way, if I have some more images in those descriptions there, I wouldn't have to "translate" those from HTML to BB code... :)

You may use all forum bbcode site-wide (members area, downloads, downloads reviews & comments, forum). HTML is not allowed due to the security risk of allowing users to add HTML descriptions (such as the meta refresh tag which could redirect users to a malicious page - and that's just one example. With bbcode we can be sure that users are restricted and is a lot safer for guests and other users visiting the site. You can see more on the site faq here and the bbcode list is here of all the currently supported codes. We are trying to increase these, so if you have any suggestions please let us know :)

After your reply I googled a little... There are ways to automatically convert html code to bb code, which is nice, and I'm sure I'm gonna use those. :)

 

I understand that about html code - there are lots of people who just wait to misuse those great options html offers. :/

It is certainly a downer, and if only people could be trusted it could be used - but in today's age, you have to assume that every user would do no good if proper restrictions aren't in place - and from what I've seen so far, a lot of guests have attempted just that.

 

But bbcode is easier than HTML for those people who have no knowledge, and because bbcode is more widespread it's easier to remember.

    • Site Downloads Renovation

      I'm pleased to announce that after a small (and complex) renovation, the site downloads section is now back online and running as usual. You can now submit your files to us again. Not much has visually changed, however there have been massive changes behind the scenes that have taken many hours to complete. I've essentially rewritten the entire downloads section from the ground up and restructured all of the database tables, which is not easy considering it's live data. One of the major cha

    • Download Section - Scenarios

      I have made a dozen scenarios earlier and had them published on another stronghold site. How do you feel about relaunching some of them here? I know they have to meet certain standards, but I'm confident that at least a handfull of them are, if not all. I've played (Stronghold and) Stronghold Crusader (SC) since release, but nowadays I find it more amusing to create content, than to play it. It's mainly to add more to the download section of StongholdNation, but also because I can't see myself d

      Good day to ye all! I trust you are doing well.   With an increase in uploads being made to SHN Download Central, I thought now would be a good time to set a reminder on what we define as a "good quality map" as this is what will determine the fate of your upload.   "Good Quality" It may be surprising to hear but your map doesn't need to be the most beautiful, with the best storyline, and the most interesting gameplay, for it to pass as a good quality map. This means creators of any experience a

    • Uploading Patches to downloads section

      They have already released patches 1.4 for both Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD. It has been pushed to Steam users, and others can download it from here.   You see, maybe it would be a smart thing to save the 1.3 patches as well. Chris, could we upload these patches to Stronghold Nation? I ask this because it is an exe file? I think this patch should stay available to people because who knows, maybe the new versions are actually less stable than the new ones... While I have to admit tha

    • A Few HTML/SQL Errors

      I've received a few errors when trying to reach the site the last few days. Not sure if it's anything to worry about, just thought I'd let you know.   Usually refreshing the page fixes it. Sometimes I need to close chrome and reopen the page. Sometimes I need to wait a little while and try again, and finally refreshing it a couple of times is a solution at times also.?   I've attached a screenshot that I cropped of one of the error messages. I did just receive a different error message relating
