You can now embed youtube videos in the forum pages

Postby nonhocapito on July 19th, 2011, 2:15 pm

I suddenly realized that we can create custom bb tags, and it is a pretty simple thing to do.

So for starters I created a "Youtube" tag to embed videos, all you have to do is to insert the video ID between the [Youtube] tags. B)

If you have suggestions as to what other bb tags we could have along these lines, let me know. They might be easy to implement :)

Easy on the videos guys, they can be used to distract... like a 2 hour david icke illuminati child eating load of nonsense! I know Simon won't be keen but I wouldn't mind having PM's.

Possibly, but we can always be vigilant and discourage the posting of irrelevant misleading material. On the other hand, one has not to leave the forum page to watch and comment a video anymore, and this can spare us some time and waste less of our attention.
