Postby tweaker » Sat Aug 02, 2008 11:15 am

YouTube and Imeem player embedding has been added to our forum software.

Adding YouTube video to you post:
- Copy the URL of the video you want to add to your post (e.g. "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iqv0lWY3FYQ")
- Enclose the URL using '[youtube]' and '[/youtube]' BBCode tags
- For the URL above, the final code should appear like this:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iqv0lWY3FYQ[/youtube]

Adding Imeem music player:
- Copy the embed code (in HTML format) of the song you want to add.

sample HTML embed code:
<object width="300" height="110"><param name="movie" value="http://media.imeem.com/m/gSOnNSaxNY/aus=false/"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://media.imeem.com/m/gSOnNSaxNY/aus=false/" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="300" height="110" wmode="transparent"></embed><a href="http://www.imeem.com/people/IGtUe3/music/EyA07Hpo/burton_cummings_i_will_always_wait_for_you/">I Will Always Wait For You - Burton Cummings</a></object>

- Copy the URL right after ' <param name="movie" value=" '. For the sample code above it will be: http://media.imeem.com/m/gSOnNSaxNY (w/o the '/aus=false/')
- Enclose the URL using '[imeem]' and '[/imeem]' tags, final code should look like:
[imeem]http://media.imeem.com/m/gSOnNSaxNY[/imeem]

we are experimenting with selective displays on the 'top 10 latest posts" and have temporarily excluded the software marketplace for now in addition to the PHOTO section. we are also exploring if a separate display window is feasible.

as we move to a new version, we will implement changes in the display parameters, subject to deliberation by the board. will keep you updated.

Update on YouTube postings:

Only the Video ID should be used when posting YouTube videos.

For example, if the video URL is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iqv0lWY3FYQ, only the part in blue should be used.

Code: Select all

Imeem and YouTube posts

You'll notice some posts using Imeem and YouTube tags are not working. This is because those tags are add-ons and were not included in the upgrade.

I will fix those posts later. Thanks.
