This new GreaseMonkey script adds buttons to help you add BBCode to your post. <del>It's also compatible with my QuickEdit script.</del> Actually I don't think it is compatible... how do you tell one GM script to wait until another is finished?

Featres:
-bold
-italics
-underline
-code
-quote (enter name of person you're quoting in a textbox)
-color (enter name/code of color you're using)
-url (you're prompted for the URL)
-img (you're prompted for the URL
-size (choose the size from a dropdown)

For all buttons but img:
-Click the button with text selected and the selected text is placed inside the tag
-Click the button with no text selected and the start tag is placed. Click the button again to place the end tag

For the img button:
-The URL you enter in the prompt is placed inside the tag. If text is highlighted, the img tag is placed at the end of the selection.

I didn't do lists. If someone wants to give it a shot, go ahead.

That's it for me, I'm going to bed. Happy BBCoding.

Post bugs here or PM me.

BTW - the script looks for any textarea with a "name" attribute of "message" or "class" attribute of "post" inside a TD tag - that would EASILY work with other phpBB forums.

Bug - Doesn't ALWAYS work with QuickEdit, but does some of the time... don't know why... I thought the QE script should run first because it uses an anonymous function. The BBCode script using an onload event... Hmm.
