Embedding Photos/Videos (and other media) on the forum just got a major facelift

Post by cleary » 09 Jul 2017, 12:48

Hi Everyone,
A very quick announcement - as many of you are aware, Photobucket has caused a bit of grief with a policy change recently, and many people are scrambling to find a new photo hosting service that can be used for displaying images "inline" in forum posts.

Long story short, we have found a plugin for the forums to make the process of embedding photos, videos (and more!) significantly easier. The change does not impact the previous method of using [img] tags/copying BB code from a hosting site, that will still work, but it does open up the possibility of rendering media content from many many more sites, without having to use direct linked, BBcode formatted posts.

But for many sites (more than 100!) you can now just paste the url into your post, no tags, and it will display the content inline.

Example 1, Pics:
Flickr - just copying and pasting the image url:


Imgur - copy and paste the post url


Example 2, Video:
Youtube - just copy and paste the url, https or not, no tags required:


You can even use the shortened share version of the youtu.be url


Vimeo - just copy and paste the url:


Cool? I think so ;)

Thanks to Cleary for bringing this extension to my attention and getting me to install it. This should bring the forum forward. :thumbup:

Exactly ;)

Please feel free to try them out, I've added the list of supported site to the original post (http://s9etextformatter.readthedocs.io/ ... bed/Sites/ ), you can also quote the examples I've provided above to see how they work.

Lastly, please feel free to practice as per Bazzbass in this thread :)

This is pretty cool for someone like me who puts a lot of pics in (my posts are mostly useless without them).

Flickr is working fine but gives a super-long line of code including display of my name and that it's on Flickr - I manually edit that part out. This looks soooo much easier.

Let me take a shot of the red Manta and try.

Thank you for doing this, folks!!

Michael

Hi George,
I'm afraid if it's not in the supported sites list, it's not supported.

However, if you're keen to get it included it would require a feature request and/or patch for the developer
