Very Nice, I like the color picker. :) I'm gonna use this in conjunction to the BBCodeXtra. :)
Both are good I just like BBCodeXtra's blue icons and that it has split the not as common usage stuff into the options menus. XD

Awesome! I just installed it minutes ago and I'm already putting it to good use... hehe. Any chance in a future release/update that you'll allow use to, via the options menu of the extension, edit out which feature we do not like (such as taking out "Color" and "Size" from the context menu)? Just curious =P

Thanks a lot! =)

Edit: I just checked out your "To Do" list for this extension on this extension's Web site, and I found "Add user costomizable functions" under the list. I'm guessing that that would be what I was talking about, correct? Thanks.

I cannot get it to work.

Should'nt it show up under the Tools menu?

I went to Tools > Extensions > BBCode 0.2 and clicked on the check mark (options) and it brings up the BBCode Settings and check Enable BBCode and it says restart the browser and I restart but it never shows up under the Tools menu or when I highlight or right click.

Is there another extension that might affect BBCode because I used to have functionality but I do not anymore.

You mean, how does bbcodextra differ from this extension?
BBcodextra is based on the old BBCode 0.1.2 code and added some different features and itallian lang support. (so I'm told).
Think of it as a "fork" of BBCode, haven't used it myself, so I wouldn't know.

Yeah, I think I figured out a way to make it happen. I'll release 0.2.1 when it's implemented.

I can't close the 'List' dialog - it just acts like I hit enter or clicked ok and adds a 'null' item to the list. Neither hitting escape, clicking on the 'x' button or clicking 'cancel' works.

The cancel button on 'url with title' doesn't work either. :(

jedbro: your point of view is the right one... THIS is the main, and extra is well, just as it says, extra:)
