When did they start allowing html in the threads again?
I notice that they have re-enabled html tags in the threads.
Someone asked me in a previous thread how to play an audio file in a thread. If we can embed code again, then you should be able to embed a video in your thread.
I was able to embed "glitters" and "talking Smileys", but you have to be careful to find ones that have no capital letter words in the code as this editor thinks you're shouting and removes the graphic.
Izan and quentin, what am I doing wrong? I did place the " ...is it in the correct place?? Look at my previous post...it just won't come out with colours...
On the point of committing suicide.....
hmmm, but you can add a video.
When you embed graphics and smilies, do you actually use the < embed > tag? I ask because the page source shows standard < a > and < img > tags in your post, which I used in my test post. Also, I am not familiar with using the < embed > tag for images.
However, I think allowing < embed > tags to be used by posters may create a bit of a security problem. Basically, someone can embed code that requires a malicious plugin and forum users will be prompted to download and install that software. So, I'm betting that currently the server is converting < embed > tags to harmless text (specifically by converting the < and > symbols to & l t; and & g t; respectively). Thus, you see the embed code and not the video.
Also, if you are using the < embed > tags for images, the server is converting those to the standard < img > tags
For video embeds, if that's important, the post editor should offer a button or something like the > or the ** symbols, which are used for blockquotes and bolding text respectively. This way, the server can create the actual embed code, ensuring that it is safe.
Probably, the server is programmed to convert the <embed> tags into non-markup by replacing the < and > symbols with the & l t ; and & g t ; codes (had to add extra spaces, but you know what I mean, right?)
