This is a sort weird idea. I run a forum for a Guild Wars guild. There is an extensive wiki for the game. I know that FUDforum has support for linking to Wikipedia. I just had the idea that it would be nice to be able to extend that functionality to other wikis. Of course, adding this type of thing into FUDforum for every wiki out there is impossible. But if there was a way for the administrator to extend the wiki link without having to do it on every upgrade, that would be awesome.

You can look @ post_proc.inc.t and from there it would be fairly trivial to duplicate wikipedia code for other wikis.

I realize that. But any modifications would be overwritten with new versions of FUDforum. I am suggesting a feature that allows an administrator to extend the functionality without having to modify that file.

Off the top of my head:

There could be a file that contains extra wikis whose content is similar to <?php
customwiki 
= array("newwiki","http://some.wiki/search/url");
?>
. The current function could then load these new wikis. Then the person composing the post could do
[wikipedia custom=newwiki]term[/wikipedia]
to link to the administrator defined wiki.

This would make fudcode implementation far too complex, so I maintain my position that if you need other wikis simply customize post_proc.inc.t

It should be mentioned that the file would only be overwritten during an upgrade in the event it has changed since the last release. Meaning if no changes were made to it and your copy contains your customizations, the customizations will be retained.
