New forum feature - Youtube bbcode tag
« on: September 19, 2007, 09:56:47 am »

The new tag makes inline posting of youtube videos possible. This isn't an invitation for people to post youtube vids everywhere but just stops a forum reader from having to leave the forum to view a video.

When you create a post, or reply to a post you will see a youtube bbcode button up by the rest of the bbcode buttons - it looks like this:

Ok, so now when you find an interesting youtube video, check the url, eg:


Now, the only bit you need is the last bit, i.e. 6I84pfQFLqI

Now, click the youtube button and insert that snippet and you'll have:

n.b. do not alter the 425,350 parameters, it won't work!

This has long been obsolete. Videos are automatically embedded now.

This used to work but it no longer seems to. I think it's something to do with YouTube no longer supporting the Flash plugin.

I do not think it is possible to embed videos in forum posts using the present version of Simple Machines.  Perhaps this is something the techies can look at?

Removing the s worked for me.

See the thread about new chest ascender.
