Suggestion: Jump to post & Youtube vids

Post by wesley123 » Wed Jun 05, 2013 1:25 pm

A little while ago it was implemented that pictures in quotes would be converted to normal links. A suggestion i would like to show for this is to also apply this for youtube links(as well as other media stuff).

Another suggestion I have is the following; With the quotes and the discussions going on, you sometimes want to read back to it and see the posts 'around' the quote, now you have to search the post yourself, in days like these that is doable, but in race weekends when there is much more activity making reading back to the post quite hard. Therefore I would like to suggest a 'jump to post' option, which would automaticly jump to the quoted post. I think that this would really ease reading through large topics, or topics with lots of activity(for example race topics).

Youtube: agreed. It was asked by others as well, but I didn't get to it yet. Coming soon ;)

Link back to quoted posts: I know this is supported by vbulletin boards, but unfortunately in phpbb things are a bit more complicated. I see there is a modification published to do this, so I'll give it a test and see how far we come ;)

Youtube change is done ;)
The youtube tag now also supports https which seems to be the standard for youtube urls these days.

When I use the YouTube tags you see this:

What do I wrong?

Sadly, the youtube tab only works with the full url, so like below:

(note that I disabled bbcode in my post to show the tags)

Further on the youtube bbcode: It's changed so that it uses youtube's new way of rendering videos, meaning that embedded videos will now also work on f1technical if you don't have flash installed (which is an insecure plugin anyway).

The change is immediate for existing posts and keeps the BBcode usage unchanged ;)
