Video testing

Postby KGAdmin » Mon Oct 17, 2016 5:01 pm

We are testing some code to post youtube videos to the forum, here's one on tried and tested footwear:



Currently you have to post the youtube URL between the tags, not the share link.

[youtube][/youtube]

Still testing though!

It works!

Visual information is much better to show detail as no matter how well someone describes something in writing, you imprint your own meanings to that and it can make a big difference, especially with 'growing practices'.

What's next then? The forum being able to post pictures off an iPhone, videos even?? Blimey that would blow the opposition out of the water for sure! Food for thought maybe if the IT could support it?? :wink:

Thanks - something to look forward to.

Great! There is a shortcode link in the menu above the compose window, to the right of 'Font colour', and the only thing to remember is to use the full youtube URL:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwM3ZySYzXw

Not the share link:

Yes it works for me too. Would you put the whole piece about products on if it wasn't just a test. Would be good to see the actual evaluation of the products.

Westi - I've just fiddled with some settings - you should be able to add images straight from a phone now!

Tap the attachments tab and 'Add files'

Then take a photo or choose one from your library, then Place inline

Do not put off thanking people when they have helped you, as they may not be there to thank later.

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

OMG! KGAdmin you're on my Xmas list for sure.

I'm not great at pics on my phone but going back to the camera was so hard when you're used to instant responses! Whoop! Off I go annoying everyone with my pics on my phone again.

For Sale - one hardly used purple Polarid iEX29, complete with cute hard cover purple spotted case - after I do my homework (read work, work) and get the chance to try it out!

THANK YOU!

OK! Here's the test to see if it works!

Meet Ambush Amber Bubbles! Hungarian Wire Haired Vizsla, who is currently main cat sitter for four 7 week old kittens who will leave to their new homes this week & next so she can stop trying to hide! Yep - she's scared of them! They have taken to her bed - she's devastated! But they are really funny, as is her reaction to them! (She was named Ambush after a brave Australian sheep dog that saved his owner in the outback)! Wrong choice probably as she'd never save us but it was an engaging story & we don't like people names for our pets!
