    link button bbcode

    ok just trying to get BBcode i think its called on my news admin script. As you all know it is uesed here for things like smiles and links. I have managed to get smilies working with this code which I found on the forums after a search

    <script language="javascript">
    var obj;
    function insert(str){
    if (obj){
    <form name="">
    <textarea name="t1" onfocus="obj=this"></textarea>
    <textarea name="t2" onfocus="obj=this"></textarea>
    <a href="javascript:insert(' :huh: ')"><img src="http://www.elitegnetwork.com/forums/html/emoticons/huh.gif" alt='smilie' border='0' /></a>
    but what I didnt find while searching was the ability to have a link generation button where if u want to put in a link u press the button and a window pops up asking for the url and another for the url name

    I have made the php so that it finds these tags (blahname) and inserts the approprite html in so the result when posted is a real html link.
    So Now i am wanting to put in some javascript to help things become more user freindly

    So in short how do you make a add link button like the one above while writing in the forums?

    Use the function and the example link below:
    function url_prompt() {
        var url = window.prompt("Enter the URL of the link or nothing to cancel:", "http://");
        if(url) {
            var url_name = window.prompt("Enter the text to be displayed for the link (this is optional):", "");
            if(obj) {
                obj.value+= (url_name) ? "[ url="+url+"]"+url_name+"[/url]" : "[ url="+url+"]"+url+"[/url]";
    <a href="javascript:url_prompt()">Add a link</a>
    Delete the white-spaces in the tags (this is only to prevent the forum from converting them.
