Here’s how to strip bad markup instead of encoding it

    On some forums you might want to remove bad html markup that’s not allowed instead of encoding it into text. Here’s a mini-plugin to do just that. It also converts <b> into <strong> and <i> into <em>

    It only runs when posts are saved instead of each time they are displayed to keep things at full speed. Posts by Moderators and Administrators are not stripped.

    (note: for now it doesn’t obey backticks and will strip inside them)

    <?php
    /*
    Plugin Name: Strip Bad Markup
    Plugin URI: http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/
    Description: removes tags that are not allowed in posts instead of encoding them
    Author: _ck_
    Author URI: http://bbShowcase.org
    Version: 0.0.1
    */

    add_filter('pre_post', 'strip_bad_markup',9);

    function strip_bad_markup($text) {
    if (!bb_current_user_can('moderate')) {
    $tags=bb_allowed_tags(); $tags['br']=true; $tags['p']=true; $tags = implode('|',array_keys($tags));
    $text=preg_replace(array("/<(/)?b>/si","/<(/)?i>/si"),array("<$1strong>","<$1em>"),$text);
    $text=preg_replace("/</?(?!($tags)).*?>/sim","", $text);
    }
    return $text;
    }

    ?>

    This looks awesome! I am going to try it out tomorrow… I noticed that some nbsp’s were being “encoded” in my bbPress installs tonight, and was wondering how I was gonna strip them out. Looking forward to trying this out :-).

    Will report back with results.

    Ah I didn’t think of handling &nbsp;

    But I thought bbpress allowed htmlentities. Maybe only some of them.
