 Forum BBCode Update and Fix
#1
Dear Friends,


For some time, we had issues with some of our forum's multimedia bbcode.  The youtube bbcode which allowed you to embed a video with a custom size had died. This due to some nuances changed in the forum architecture.  That's my story and I'm sticking with it.


However, this has been solved.  The old
&#91youtube&#93 and &#91youtube=400x300&#93 commands now work as they did before, letting you just use the address ID of the video.  Yes indeed, you can set the size of your youtube video to whatever you want.

Example Code: &#91youtube&#93&#91youtube=360x200&#93hFZFjoX2cGg&#91/youtube&#93
Formerly:       https://www.yοutube.com/watch?v=hFZFjoX2cGg


However I did not stop there.

For those who like music, the forum now allows you to use our new custom &#91soundcloud&#93 bbcode. Direct embedding does work, but the typical result would be that the single post would have a very large background image, both vertical and horizontal.  This version, though as wide as the post, is limited in vertical height as you can see below.

Example BBCode: &#91soundcloud&#93https://soundcloud.com/animu/yoko-kanno-origa-rise&#91/soundcloud&#93


To the users of the old
&#91Audio&#93 plugin, the posts that used it and became broken, fret no longer. While it may not allow embedding of automatic play, it will at least function as before and as default embedding allows. Unfortunately, there is no support as yet for soundimage other than by direct embedding as I've shown within Eric Matyas's creative audio topic.



Whee!!! New Text options!
And for those that like a good read, there is now a custom &#91Marquee&#93 sidescrolling text option, and now the ability to add custom &#91shadow&#93 text, with or without shaded color.

How do ya like it now?
