I want to replace newlines with <br /> while parsing BBcode and do some more special replacements. But since our youtube tag replacement includes some newlines, those are replaced by <br /> to. 

Is it possible to add an generic content handler?

so for example for the string "hello [b]this[/b] is [i]bold[/i]"

and the parser below

that handler would get called with "hello ", " is " and "this"

Reproduce code:
$string = "hello [b]this[/b] is [i]bold[/i]";

$BBCode = array(
''=> array( 
   'type' => BBCODE_TYPE_ROOT),
'generic'=> array( 
   'content_handling'=> 'contentHandler'),
'b'=> array(
   'type' => BBCODE_TYPE_NOARG,
   'open_tag'=> '<strong>',
   'close_tag'=> '</strong>'),
'i'=> array(
   'type' => BBCODE_TYPE_NOARG,
   'child' => '!generic',
   'open_tag'=> '<em>',
   'close_tag'=> '</em>'),

$BBHandler = bbcode_create($BBCode);
bbcode_parse($BBHandler, $string);

function contentHandler($content)
 echo "'$content'\n";

Expected result:
'hello '
' is '

it will be a default content handling?

better to add a function bbcode_set_default_handler() IMHO,

if this is ok for you, i can make a publication in a few hours.

Yes, i think that would suffice.

On second thought: a default handler would not be enough since given this example 
"hello [b]this is [i]bold[/i] not italic[/b]"
it would be called with 
"this is <em>bold</em> not italic" and 
"hello <strong>this is <em>bold</em> not italic</strong>"

instead of "hello", "this is ", "bold" and "not italic"

so my handler would only be called with leaf nodes (if you consider every text in a tag seperated by another tag as a seperate node like in xml happens)

This is usefull to have for example nl2br as a default text content handler and be able to disallow it in certain tags

I believe that a callback at the same point were smileys are parsed would suffice. At least if i understand the code correctly.

Actually smilies solved part of my problem:

a smilie defined a  "\n", "<br />\n" has the same effect as nl2br without the problem of adding <br />'s in youtube object elements.

However the other part of my problem cannot be solved without regexes. So probably a way to use regexes for smilies or a smilie handler (although in my case not for smilies, but to make links clickable)  would solve my problem.

Due to this extension not seeing any activity since 2010, this issue will not be fixed. We are therefore closing this now.
