    Suggestion: jhansle1

    Youtube video suggestion, here's a little how to on how to add youtube to the phpbb3. I don't know if it is possible or not or if you even want to do it...but I'll include it anyhow. I should make adding videos easier:

    Adding a YouTube tag to phpBB3

    Bayard Randal was using the open source online forum software application phpBB3, and decided to create a hack to allow users to easily embed YouTube videos in their forum posts.

    Click the link to see his walkthrough.

    Using phpBB3 Release Candidate 4 - released 28 July 2007.

    1. Log in to the Administrative Control Panel (ACP), and click the Posting tab.

    2. Click the Add a new BBCode button in the bottom right hand corner.

    3. Enter the following under BBCode Usage:

    [youtube:3j1smmkf]{TEXT}[/youtube:3j1smmkf]

    4. Enter the following under HTML replacement:

    <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{TEXT}" wmode="transparent" style="width:400px; height:326px;" id="VideoPlayback" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" flashvars="">

    5. (Optional) Enter the following under Help line:
    Use the ID of the youtube video.

    6. Ensure that Display on posting page is checked.

    7. Click Submit

    You should now have a YouTube button available from your posting interface.

    To use it, simply enter the ID of the YouYube video between the BBCode.

    Example:

    If your youtube URIL is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=areyUfCNFxY


    your BBCode in your post would appear:


    [youtube:3j1smmkf]areyUfCNFxY[/youtube:3j1smmkf]


    Thanks for the tip, Bayard!

    Playing around with php code is tricky from my understanding. I'm not sure about J's level of comfort with php code...but would be worth a try if that's his thing. Of course we can always just post a link to the youtube video.

    I hear ya with the PHP code, I think this one is majority menu driven. Like you said links will work, the suggestion is probably more of a luxury suggestion than a need.

    I may be a little bit confused, but there is a How To on how to embed a video in the forum. I do have proficiency in php, so I could install a mod, but I this functionality already exists.
