Normally I'd just make this another stealth update, but I wanted to thank grimdonkey for his help in setting up a feature I've wanted for a while now (which I feel all real MTG sites should have)... tooltips for the [card] tag.

For example: Fireball!

There's a few bugs that I need to work out (eg: Emrakul), but other than that it'll hopefully be a value add for you guys.

Additionally card tags now link to deckbox.org, in part as a thanks for giving us the code to support tooltips.. and in part cause it seems like a good information-centric site for that kind of information.

Indeed really cool!

(Now if only you would support [c] and [/c] next to [card] and [/card] it'd be perfect!)

I was skeptical at first, but I'm loving it now.

This is pretty awesome. I noticed you took the gatherer tag button out but they still work. Will you be including the [="cardname"]text[/] function in the card tags, or will we have to put the card name in []here[/]?

BTW, mana tags would be awesome. [mana]4RBU[/mana] and have it show the symbols. Just a suggestion, and I don't know the legal implications (wouldn't want WotC to try and sue you guys) but it would be cool.

Tip: if you ever need to write them in a post or quote, [c[b][i][/i][/b]] gets parsed in a way that will leave the tag, but not use it as one, [/c] can just be written without consequences if there is no leading [c]. I got this from somebody else on another forum, not sure how he found out.

Otherwise, many thanks for the update!!!

You may already be aware of this, but I've noticed that the card tooltips don't always work right for flip cards, i.e.
Erayo, Soratami Ascendant
Bushi Tenderfoot
Jushi Apprentice
you need to use the flipped name for some of them, but it's not consistent.
Erayo's Essence
Kenzo the Hardhearted
Tomoya the Revealer

I run my own board using phpBB as well and am wondering if it would be possible for you to share this code? Would make a great addition to my site :)

Thanks,

What is the syntax for displaying alternate text within my [card] tag?
I've tried
  • [c="Altar"]Altar of Dementia[/c]
  • [c="Altar of Dementia"]Altar[/c]
  • [c=Altar of Dementia]Altar[/c]
but I just can't get it to work.

Thanks

The only way I know is (gatherer="Cardname")Text(/gatherer), which works like so: Example

There used to be a button for it, but it went away.
