Playing safe with your forum descriptions

People constantly mess up their admin access with fancy html in forum descriptions, they also need to allow a load of html tags to allow the fancy features Sad

It doesn't have to be that way! The better way is:

In the forum description you can put :

Code:

<div id="test1">


In the footer html in the owner control panel put.

Code:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function divWrite(ID,parentID,sText) {
 if (document.layers) {
   var oLayer;
   if(parentID){
     oLayer = eval('document.' + parentID + '.document.' + ID + '.document');
   }else{
     oLayer = document.layers[ID].document;
   }
   oLayer.open();
   oLayer.write(sText);
   oLayer.close();
 }
 else if (parseInt(navigator.appVersion)>=5&&navigator.
appName=="Netscape") {
   document.getElementById(ID).innerHTML = sText;
 }
 else if (document.all) document.all[ID].innerHTML = sText
}

divWrite("test1",null,"<p>embedded code</p>");
</script>


The "embedded code" bit is what you change to what you want to write.
use as many divWrites as you like. You will need to use \ in front of quotes in the desired code.
