I know there's a bajillion & 2 things on the list of things to do, but it can't hurt to have one more to consider.

There's times when someone wants to explain how bbcode works, but they have to go to confusing measures to do so.
A recent example by SugarKane, http://www.ozzu.com/general-discussion/how-get-the-pictures-next-the-text-t65115.html#345672

How about a new bbcode,

[bboff] or somthing similar.

So that examples can still be posted, but the explaination doesn't have to go out of the scope of what's being explained to explain why there's a funky version of the bbcode in the example.

I'm thinking the beginning of the bbcode routene could replace anything wrapped inside this off-switch with a place holder, process the rest of the message for bbcode, & put the off-switched codes back in.
It's been a few releases since I've looked much at the bbcode engine so I'm not sure where other filtering would come into the picture, but hopefully I've gotten the idea across. :D

Also on your post you can simply check the box that says "Disable BBCode in this post" - You won't see that in the quick reply area, you need to actually click on the "Post Reply" to get to get all of the posting options. By disabling BBCode in there you could type it exactly like you want to explain it to someone.

See:

Code: [ Select ]
Code would go here
