Youtube confusion

Post by dorin » Sun Nov 06, 2016 7:35 am

The youtube code for the board is a bit old, but is working as designed as we software people like to say!
That said, is certainly is a bit inconvenient how to use it.

Suppose you want to post this youtube video:

You should not copy that string between the 'youtube' tags as below:

you would put: hHD10DjxM1g between the 'youtubes'.

Only put the tag .. i.e. the id of the youtube video.

Hope to have a better solution soon.

Thanks, but I did that, and it didn't work.

As long as the board has included the youtube button, I've edited posts to ensure that those who benefit from the use of the button have that feature at their disposal. What I've learned along the way is that there are a few incidences where the button, which requires a contraction of the full link, DOES NOT WORK, and no amount of juggling appears to change that.

In this instance, the contracted link does not work, in spite of the fact that the entire link does. I'm not convinced the board software is at fault, although I can't insist it is not.

Wise people talk because they have something to say. Fools talk because they have to say something.
