Flash videos

Postby rollalongFF0304 » Fri Jul 24, 2009 11:19 pm

Tried embedding a YouTube video tonight but wasn't able to do so using the code highlighted on the pepper post. As I look below this text edit box under Options, I see (sans brackets for posting purposes):

BBCode is ON
img is ON
flash is OFF
url is ON
Smiles are ON

I couldn't find the option on the control panel to turn it on...are flash videos an admin function only for the time being?

There's a bit of a trick to it... I've detailed it in a post in the free-for-all forum. Check out the section in the white box:

Thanks, Grant - I used that as a reference, but in my post window there is no flash button. The only buttons I've got are bold, italic, underline, quote, code, list, list=, *, Img, URL, and Font size.

Well, that's just messed up.... try clearing your cache. Here's what it should look like:

If that fails, try copying and pasting the code and doing it manually:
Code: Select all
[flash=width,height]http://url[/flash]


Sorry it's not working for you. Anyone else having the issue of not seeing the flash button when they create new posts?

Me. I see the same thing he does. And when I try to post manually, it tells me "You cannot use certain BBCodes: [flash]." in red across the top of the page.
