Media Embed Improvement

Post by chris » Sat May 19, 2018 12:35 am

A new media embedding service is now part of the eGriz forums.

From now on, any media URL you put in a post, should automatically parse and display the media such as youtube, Vimeo, twitter, hudl etc.

Here is a list of media that can now be parsed in forum posts. Cheers

If for some reason the URL alone isn't working, try utilizing the new bbcode button that looks like a computer monitor, which will put the media bbcode into the post. Paste your url within that bbcode and you should be set.

+1 my only fear is that Mr. T will start monkeying around with it after a heavy night downtown. I would suggest either locking him out or finding him a girlfriend.

how do I place a photo in a post ? Can I only do this if it's located in a online "public" place?
Not sure I understand.

Correct, as Mr.T stated, the photo has to be online somewhere (any website, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, Flickr or a number of other photo hosting websites). Once this is done, you can copy the URL of the photo and display it on egriz

I’m. Not. Sharing.


Bastard.


But many thanks to Chris for facilitating this upgrade, should I somehow change my mind.
