Hey guys! Feature update!

@UselessBytes & @Misfit Angel over from the Writers' Workshop requested if we could have a way to make popup messages on top of text.
And after a couple hours of tinkering here we have the solution!

And it's hoverable!
You see?


This BB code is now usable everywhere except for in Signatures, so I hope you'll enjoy it!

You can also find this help over here: BB codes

126818

Please note that any BB code should work inside the popup. for example
I'm a Bold And Italic! Message.

Code:
[hover="for example"][B]I'm a Bold [I]And Italic![/I][/B] Message.[/hover]
Even recursive hovers
recursive hovers
recursive hovers
recursive hovers
Are possible


If you find any bugs, like not being able to see text due to a wrong color, or similar. Please let me know down below :)
Feedback is of course also welcome!

Just like if you have any other feature requests! however please direct those over here: FAQ: - Forum Update: Question & Suggestion Thread

  • The size of the popup is at least 300px on Tablet & PC, but sizes to be the same as the size of the 'hoverable' text.
  • On small phone screens the popup may go off screen slightly, you should be able to scroll off the side of the screen to read it that way.
  • Hovers inside quotes or the preview box are cut off by the quote/preview box.

Hope you guys enjoy!

Dylan, you and whoever else who have may worked on this are awesome for doing this in such a short amount time!! Especially just because UselessBytes wanted this just for their Yugioh fanfic.

I guess I could use this for snark instead of slashed text.

Found a bug: hovers don't seem to work properly in preview.
