Glow text option

Post by Burning 2k8 on September 26th 2008, 12:03 am

I think there should be an option that allows you to put a glow around your text, like so: <table style="filter:glow(color=blue,strength=2)">
<TR><TD><center>
<font color="black">This is an example of a blue glow on a black font</font></center></TD></TR></table>

Good idea? Smile

I've seen glow text used before, and it was neat at first but got old fast. I don't see the harm in having it available, however.

I vote yes and if we were able to have custom BBCode I would have added it already. Sure it might get kind of tired fast but that could be said about the scrolling test or WOW BBCode or anything we use really, even smilies...

You can add glowing text via CSS3 (well its CSS2 and a half)

all you do in your table ... its give it text shadow, which can be converted to glow.

here is the code:
text-shadow: 0px 0px 4px #000;

the first and second 0px make it so the glow is all around the text.
the 4px is the size of the glow
and #000 is the color in hex code.

here is an example:
Texting glowing text

Texting glowing text

Code:
[table border="0"]
[tr]
[td style="text-shadow: 0px 0px 4px #000; height: 50px;"] [color=white]Texting glowing text[/color][/td]
[/tr][/table]

[table border="0"]
[tr]
[td style="text-shadow: 0px 0px 8px #3ac1d9; height: 50px;"] [color=white]Texting glowing text[/color][/td]
[/tr][/table]

put it in a post, works fine even with IE

It would be good to use on ranks, but shouldn't be allowed for posting as it gets old and sometimes may get boring.

all depends on what color you use and how strong the shadow is.
you regulate it... I just gave an example.
On a dark surfaceStronger glow

Most CSS3 rules will only work with Firefox 3.x, Opera 10.x, or Chrome/Safari 3.x. Older versions of the above browsers, as well as Internet Explorer, use proprietary methods to achieve some CSS3 effects, and those methods are incompatible with each other. The text-shadow example above works with Opera 9.6, Chrome/Safari 2.0, and Firefox 3.1 (or later versions of these browsers). It doesn't work with Internet Explorer or with older versions of Opera, Chrome, Safari, or Firefox.

We are at least a year away from widespread CSS3 acceptance, double that if IE9 as rumored doesn't have CSS3 support. Until that time, glowing text and other CSS3-like features would be next to impossible to implement in a way that is compatible with most browsers. Plus, forumotion isn't going to alienate half their user base by adding features that are incompatible with Internet Explorer.

So this request is an easy NO for me.
