Chat Tags (source) is a mark-up parser for Special:Chat.

It allows users to add formatting to their in-chat messages. Such formatting includes the ability to add colors to their messages, change the font of their messages, alter the font size, alter the font weight, and the background of their messages.

This gives users the creative freedom to better express themselves while in chat.

Users are now able to bold important sections of their messages or even highlight them using colors and backgrounds instead of using all caps. They are also able to italicize quotes and what ever else they deem necessary.

Put together this script enhances chats of all purposes.

Usage Edit

To use Chat Tags on your wiki after installation one must only wrap their text in the designated tags that you will find below. Chat Tags functions much like HTML in that it requires a beginning tag that shows where you wish to start formatting and and ending tag to show when to stop formatting. If you do not include both of these tags then your text will be ignored by the script.

Tags must end in the order that they start

For example:

[c="red"]This text will be red.[/c] This text will be red.

[c="#FF0000"]This text will also be red.[/c] This text will also be red.

[bg="red"]This text will have a red background.[/bg] This text will have a red background.

[b]This text will be bold.[/b] This text will be bold.

[big]This text will be big.[/big] This text will be big.

[font="chiller"]This text will have the chiller font.[/font] This text will have the chiller font.

[c="red"][b]This text will be red and bold.[/b][/c] This text will be red and bold.

[c="red"][big][font="chiller"]This text will be big, red, and will have the chiller font.[/font][/big][/c] This text will be big, red, and will have the chiller font.
