Editors' Note: The Download Now link will prompt a local download of the Firefox extension. To install the extension directly, open the file using your Firefox browser.
This freeware Firefox add-on greatly helps users insert proper coding in forums that allow text markup. As with most Firefox plug-ins, you merely drop the download onto your add-on window to install this tool. Lacking its own interface, BBCodeXtra adds commands to the Firefox context menu.
Users get immediate access to about 30 formatting commands with this handy tool. Operation is simple, merely right-click where you want to place the code, scroll down, and choose the proper item. The add-on has three menus for bbcode, HTML, and XHTML, but you can remove unneeded menu clutter by disabling any of the three menus with a single click. Each includes basic formatting codes to make text bold, italic, or underlined. Image and URL commands are also available with a click. Clipboard and list codes are featured in submenus.
We would have liked the option to remove specific codes we know we'd never use, but BBCodeXtra is still an add-on we'd recommend to any forum user or blogger.
BBCodeXtra is an extension, compatible with Mozilla FireFox and Mozilla Suite, which adds to the context menu new commands to insert BBCode/Html/XHtml codes in an easy and fast way. BBCodeXtra suits well with all forum types, for example: phpBB, Invision, and VBullettin This extension can really simplify your life with all forums that use BBCode or Html codes when posting new messages.
