This comes from the fact that many of the boards that MyBB supports for Merging from use the [pre][/pre] BBCode version of the html <pre></pre> tags, and MyBB should have it as well.

Title: Preformatted Text

Short Description: Implements the html Preformatted Text (<pre>text</pre>) as a MyCode ([pre]text[/pre])

Regular Expression: [pre](.*?)[/pre]

Replacement: <pre>$1</pre>

Parse Order: 1
Great idea. I'm surprised I didn't think of it first. lol
I believe the regular expression should be \[pre\](.*?)\[/pre\] though.
You are correct, sorry I forgot to escape them. I was getting ready to rush out the door lol. I trusted the community to catch any mistakes though. Smile
Thank you, the code is useful in certain cases Big Grin but i may add that just simple <pre>$1</pre> will break the layout for it will run over with long text. It needs wrapping and I think this is better:

<pre style="
white-space: -moz-pre-wrap;
white-space: -pre-wrap;
white-space: -o-pre-wrap;
white-space: pre-wrap;
word-wrap: break-word;

Code took from
What would be better is if I allowed adding options into the opening MyCode tag actually (For advanced users); but yes, those options are good.
