By Karl Benson

Enables you use bbcode to point users to wikipedia pages using wiki bbcode

Installs automatically on Default, Classic and Babylon theme and any theme without a custom Post.template.php

To manually install this modification on other themes;
- place the wiki.gif in the "Themes/{ThemeName}/images/bbc" for EVERY THEME.
- A single manual edit is required FOR EACH THEME with a custom Post.template.php

Open Themes/{themename}/Post.template.php, and FIND:

$context['bbc_tags'][] = array(
'flash' => array('code' => 'flash', 'before' => '[flash=200,200]', 'after' => '[/flash]', 'description' => $txt[433]),


'wiki' => array('code' => 'wiki', 'before' => '[wiki]', 'after' => '[/wiki]', 'description' => $txt['wikipedia']),

If you are still having trouble, I recommend the Modification Parser by Daniel 15

How Do I Use This Mod?
The mod adds a Wiki BBCode button to insert Wiki BBCode which then is converted in posts to point users to pages at wikipedia, clearing marking where the link leads.
