Dave, I don't know if this is of use to you:

FoxForum (in foxforum.php) uses a custom PTV markup
(::var:multiline value::) for posting text area content
including directives as a PTV.
Defined like this:

# add new PTV pattern for text PTV (::var:...::)
$PageTextVarPatterns['(::var:...::)'] =
    '/(\\(:: *(\\w[-\\w]*) *:(?!\\))\\s?)(.*?)(::\\))/s';

The PTV pattern (:var:value:) is not unset, to stay useful.

Security is dealt with within Fox by setting a variable
$EnablePostDirectives = true;
If it is false, the default, Fox will "defuse" any directives found in variables
posted (similar to adding an extra space).
See also function FoxDefuseItem in fox.php

Hope this helps, nothing more frustrating than to abandon efforts
after days of work!

Happy New Year to all of you!
