Can you add BBcode for Youtube?

Postby Individual » Thu Jun 25, 2009 12:25 am

So that people can embed Youtube videos in forum posts. It's much easier to view... You don't have to open a new window.

I've never done it, but I've seen it work on other forums. Here's a description of how to do it:

I don't know if that will work or not...

Greetings Individual,

Have you seen it work, or heard of it done on a phpBB3 board?

“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

It works on a phpBB board elsewhere, but not this same version... They use an older version of your software, so it will probably work on yours as well.

I did a search on their website and they have this code for a great variety of different video sites:

Greetings Individual,

I've had a look and it involves the installation of a MOD and TheDhamma is the only person who can do that, so I'll have a chat to him and we'll see whether it's viable.
