    Linking Videos on AA

    Thanks to [MENTION=15686]bigredbird[/MENTION] we've tracked down the cause of a long term issue of Youtube some videos not showing up on IOS devices.
    This is due to the automatic parser mod installed which allowed you to just post a youtube link. This mod puts [url] tags around the link instead of [video].
    I've now disabled the plugin so you must use the "Insert Video" icon in your editor to post a video from here on out. This is how the new forum software works also so we may as well all get used to it (including me).

    If you see a broken video in one of your old posts thtas now a link simply edit it and change the [url] BBcode to [video] at either end of youtube link, the right hand side is supposed to have a [/ video] backslash.

      Lol i had to put the space there because it thought my text was a video link. [emoji28]


        I've always used the "Insert Video" link so never realised there was a problem. Nice work [MENTION=15686]bigredbird[/MENTION]
