Converting bbcode to html? on 01/03/2013 16:55:59 MST Print View

I just posted a trip report in bbcode on another forum, but this forum uses html. Is there an easy way to convert the entire text block? I don't want to re-do everything again.

Posting trip reports here is so time consuming and difficult for us mere mortals. I suggest you just post a link to it.

A link is easiest, but I'd suggest using a text editor with a good search/replace function (e.g. notepad++). As long as your formatting isn't too complex it should be relatively straightforward.

Or, just try this: http://bbcode-to-html.com/
(I haven't tried it, just saw it via Google.)

A table of common replacements is here:

I will just re-copy all of the links in html from photobucket and copy all of the text in. It's not a big deal, but I was hoping there was an easier solution.

I tried that link and it worked great!
