allowing inline youtube videos

Post by philipgar »

I just noticed on another site, the ability to directly embed youtube videos on posts. I did a quick google, and it looks like it's not too difficult to add a "youtube" button to phpBB (depending what version you're using). See http://www.corporate-computers.co.uk/20 ... ng-bbcode/ for details, or google it.

Anyhow, I think it would be a great feature if we could do inline links to youtube videos on here.

I think it'd be a great feature too; thanks a bunch for the suggestion... I'll go ahead and add it now. I'm sure it'll will definitely come in handy! :)


Just follow these three simple steps:

1. Place the YouTube URL in the post.
2. Highlight the whole YouTube URL.
3. Click the "youtube" button located above the message text box (it will place "[youtube]" in front of and "[/youtube]" in back of the URL).

You'll get the following result. ;)

thanks for the quick addition! I figure it was as easy as that site said it was to do. Should be much more useful than just linking to videos in the future, much easier to keep track and not have to open multiple tabs or windows etc.
