BBCode to HTML

Convert BBCode to HTML

Converting BBCode (Bulletin Board Code) to HTML involves transforming text formatted with BBCode tags into the equivalent HTML markup. BBCode is often used in forums and message boards to apply formatting and styling to text. Here's how you can convert some common BBCode tags to their corresponding HTML equivalents:

Bold Text:
BBCode: [b]Bold Text[/b]
HTML: <strong>Bold Text</strong>

Italic Text:
BBCode: [i]Italic Text[/i]
HTML: <em>Italic Text</em>

Underlined Text:
BBCode: [u]Underlined Text[/u]
HTML: <u>Underlined Text</u>

Strikethrough Text:
BBCode: [s]Strikethrough Text[/s]
HTML: <s>Strikethrough Text</s>

BBCode: [url=]Visit Example[/url]
HTML: <a href="">Visit Example</a>

BBCode: [img][/img]
HTML: <img src="" alt="">

These are just a few examples of how to convert common BBCode tags to HTML. The conversion process involves identifying the BBCode tags and replacing them with their corresponding HTML markup. If you have more complex BBCode structures or variations, you may need to handle them accordingly.

Keep in mind that while BBCode is often used in forums, HTML is more widely supported across various web platforms and is the standard for web content markup. When converting BBCode to HTML, make sure to validate and sanitize user-generated content to prevent security vulnerabilities, such as cross-site scripting (XSS).
