YouTube Tag & Forum/Wiki Upgrade

Post by MegaMav » November 1st, 2015, 8:40 pm

Members,

I have updated the YouTube tag javascript code to handle both the YouTube share link and regular URL.

The trend lately here is people trying to use the share link instead of what the youtube tag instructions stated to do, which was to use the URL.

Now you can use both.

https://youtu.be/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The script will handle both formats automatically, so feel free to use either now.


I will be updating both the forum and the wiki framework software to improve our security and stability.

I am not sure right now what date it will be, either December 27th or January 3rd.
Both weekends are notoriously quiet. The downtime should not be significant if all goes as planned.

Disregard the following ramblings of this demented duck.

Eric, could this be a factor in this user's issue

User: mergy
Topic: open videos?
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11516" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Just wondering ...
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so

There should be a rule of war saying you have to see someone up close and get to know 'em before it's ok to shoot 'em
