Project Thread Creator v1.0.0.1

This bundle is marked as useful / simple. Simplicity is bliss, low effort and/or may contain minor bugs.
This takes a folder with files in it and converts them into a thread.


To use, drag the folder on to the exe.
Files must be named -> ID SECTIONNAME.txt
Example -> 1 Hello There

The ID is the order the files will appear in the post

If a file is not properly named, it will not be included in the generation.

All bb code is normal except for images. To do an image.
url

The reason for this is because I wanted them to be formatted a certain way ^_^.

This seems pretty awesome :D

Though why do images need the prefix before them?
Couldn't you detect whether it's an image by looping until you hit a space, and then looping backwards till you find the a '.' character, then check if the format is an image format? :p
I know it's a lot of work because there are just so many image formats, but it would be more convenient for the users ^_^

To do all of the formatting, yes.

Looks interesting, I can try this if I have sometime, does it only work for hiveworkshop? Or it have some specific bbcode that it follows? Well I believe this only work for hiveworkshop bb codes.

I'm updating it to work with pretty much any forum. Going to be turning it into a Windows Forums App. Allowing it to take character limits as well =).

Not really worth all the time and effort it would take unless you want to list out all of the possible image format for me? I could do a dictionary and it'd be a pretty easy check ^_-.

nvm, I can just rip from wikipedia ;D http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_file_formats#Major_graphic_file_formats

edit
also @mod, clearly you don't know how long/annoying it is to do all of the formatting and manage a post that is 250,000 characters long. Also, update does have a GUI and everything, so many improvements ^_^.
