How to add videos and images to your posts

Postby Pyrrho » Wed Dec 23, 2009 12:40 pm

For YouTube videos, paste the YouTube video url between the "ytube" bbcode as follows:

Code: Select all

[ytube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T_jwq9ph8k[/ytube]


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T_jwq9ph8k

To add images:

The usual method, via the IMG bbcode, is disabled on this forum. However, you can attach images to your posts by using the "Upload attachment" tab below the posting window when you are writing your posts.

Click on the "Upload attachment" tab, then click on the "Browse" button to locate the image on your computer. You can enter a file comment if you wish. Click on the "Add the file" button. At this point you can click on the "Place inline" button, or click on the "Upload attachment" button to add another image.

Obviously, there is a risk that people will post images that other people may find offensive. When posted images violate the stated rules, I will remove them as soon as possible.

Users can disable display of images in post by navigating to this page in the User Control Panel

ucp.php?i=prefs&mode=view

Select "No" for "Display images within posts".

Awrighty then!

I have many images saved to my hard drive. Many. There's no way I can remember what they all are. Let's try posting a random one and see what we get! :mrgreen:

Yes, it was very instructive.

Whoever subscribes to the rationale used to formulate the main point of that post would be commonly known as a noob, or someone who doesn't know much about the subject he is speaking of.

Thanks.

We sometimes get posters who can't tell the difference between a forum and a thread. That contributes to meaningless malevolence, superfluous descriptions of common understandings and predictions from the uninformed. Which, of course, contrary to such dire predictions, keeps this thread alive and the forum practically, well, thriving...

I am unlikely to enable image hotlinking, even in these days of ubiquitous "sharing." Nothing prevents anyone from downloading a photo and then using the image attachment feature to include it in a post.

This has always been a low-traffic forum, although the search engine bots consume far more bandwidth than they're worth.

The copyright question is kind of muddled given YouTube, etc. which is a hotbed of copyright violation, and I let people post YouTube videos--although YouTube specifically allows sharing. In a very real sense, web sites that don't want people to hotlink their images can and should disable hotlinking in their server settings--although not everyone can do that.

I suppose I should give due consideration to conflicting ethics. This version of the forum software is more flexible than the 2005 version. For example, I can prevent search bots from seeing images in posts.

I'll think about it. Opinions welcome.

My opinion, for what it is worth, is that image linking would be appreciated. I have downloaded and uploaded pictures as attachments before, but it's much simpler to just use the [img] tag.

Ok, I'll enable it, and we'll see how it goes. I can always revoke the privilege on an individual basis if someone posts something unmutual.

People can disable display of images in their user control panel settings. I'm restricting the image size to a maximum of 800 x 800 pixels, in order to prevent the linking of whopper images that would break the forum layout. I may also restrict how many images can be posted in a given post, although offhand I don't know if I can do that.

No, Chrome. Every second (or so) post with a [ ytube ] link seems to be coming out as text... [ ytube ] linkage [ /ytube ]

y o u ' r e leaving spaces before and after "ytube" in the brackets?

That doesn't work. As well, I've found that sometimes you get text, but that is because of how you got the video address. If that happens, you need to click away from that video and then click on it again from youtube. Then take the address from your browser address bar and paste it on your post.

Yes, it's done with replacement tokens. Here's the raw code:

The {TEXT} part is the YouTube token that gets picked up by the code replacement...

Code: Select all

[ytube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v={TEXT}[/ytube]


...in this, which gets rendered as part of the HTML markup for the forum page...

Code: Select all

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{TEXT}&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{TEXT}&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>


...and you see these instructions on the posting page...

Code: Select all

[ytube]Paste the YouTube video link here[/ytube]

Try [ytube][/ytube]. But you also need to delete the 's' in https, if the link has one. And it also seems some just don't want to be embedded.

I will look into it. There is a [video] bbcode out there that handles multiple types of video embedding via JavaScript.
