New Forum Feature - Flash

Postby GeneticsDave » Sun 13 Jul 2008 8:51 pm

Hello all!

I want to tell you all about an exciting new feature we (as in Jeff) have implemented. As of today, you are now able to embed Flash objects into your posts.

What does that mean, you ask? If you want to add a YouTube video, or other Flash media, into your post rather than linking to the YouTube page, simply grab the location of the Flash object (http://www.youtube.com/v/ZmZic2VFGyI) and put it into the Flash BBCode like so:

Code: Select all
[flash=425,344]http://www.youtube.com/v/ZmZic2VFGyI[/flash]


The breakdown goes like this:
[flash tells the board you are posting a flash object, =425,344] tells the board what size (horizontal,vertical) the video is, then you stick in the location followed by a /flash or "end flash" code.

Pretty simple. If anyone has problems with something, let me know, happy to help. The final product looks like this:

Good idea. I had not tried to post any flash code on here but I have on other boards and it's a nice feature.
