Youtube button added and updates on the Shoutbox
« on: Nov 06, 2014, 16:27:33 »
When you go to post now there is an extra button up top for youtube links. this will embed the video into your post.

One thing you need to consider is, if the youtube link is a https:// link then delete the s  , so it is a http:// link  , the one i tested didn't work until this was done.


After feedback the Shoutbox is now visible on more pages than before and the notifications for new forum posts have been turned off.

cheers

hmm seems an issue with youtu.be too, use the main URL instead e.g. >

<iframe width="640" height="385" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/hALlkI4iwzE?fs=1&start=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

i wonder if just hALlkI4iwzE works?

Update:-

with the youtube button you can in fact just use the  video ID , miss out the http and youtube / youtu.be bit e.g.



would be

hALlkI4iwzE

so in summary https does not work and currently neither does youtu.be links complete..

https links now work, so do youtu.be ones ..  a bit of PHP coding goes a long way...
