New media embed forum feature

Post by Greg » 18 May 2017, 13:28

Hi,

A new feature is now active on our forums called "Media Embed", replacing the old [video] bb tags.

When creating a new post you'll see a new button on the ribbon to wrap your link into [media] bb tags, but the forum should also be able to identify links without the tags and still embed them in your post.

Supported content includes Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, Twitter, many news sites such as CNN and BBC and many, many more. For a full list go here.

Note that old links wrapped in [video] tags will no longer show embedded from now on.

Here's an example with one of our Facebook posts:

Code: Select all
