It should be pointed out that nearly every single BBcode we had before works as intended. And when it doesn't work, ctrl+RMB will have the option somewhere. Like linked images. You use the %7Boption%7D tags, then once the image shows up, in the editor you ctrl+RMB over it and hit edit image, and then you can add a link to it. Other than that and tables, almost every BBcode still works.

Yep seems to.  BUT if I am not mistaken you need to edit old posts to get them to update... so there is that.

I already have mentioned that.

Well, the way you said it makes it seem like most of it doesn't work. When in fact, 90% or more works just fine. 'Twas just a suggestion though. :)

Good idea, I changed the phrasing somewhat.

How do I embed video? The only option I get is hyperlink and "insert other media" for images.

Paste the URL, then press enter and it will parse the link into an embed. Like so:

Is there a way to link to a youtube video without automatically embedding it?

For example, if I want to post several links to tutorial videos without having all of them pop up in the thread at once.

Use the insert url function and paste it in. Like so:

https://youtu.be/dQw4w9WgXcQ

Pressing enter does not make it auto parse into an embed then.

Interesting feature I didn't notice before: Clicking an embedded picture embiggens it. :) 

Edit: Oh my, it lets you click through the pics in a single post like a gallery. Great for those pic-heavy mission report posts.

Uh, wow!  That is a very cool feature.  Seems to work very well.  In some ways, I think it's much better than the imgur embeds.
I wonder if it works for images behind spoiler tags.

Thanks for finding that and posting, Red Iron Crown.

Happy landings!

eta: Nope - doesn't seem to work if the images are behind spoiler tags.  Not surprising, really.

You can link the URL of a custom stream you've made, other users will be able to see it and add it to their custom streams if they like.

Example.

That's great!  I'll add that!

Embedded picture with link? Ya know, something like in my sig?

Like I said in the other thread about it:

There are two methods of which I'm aware for making an image into a clickable link:

1. Insert picture first, alt-RMB it, edit picture, and there's a field to insert an URL.

2. Insert the link first, highlight it, then "Insert other media" and add the image as you would normally.

Couldn't find it in the topic but maybe misssed it:

I'm trying to let the editor cut off editing a link. You know, the blue line while typing. If I do a normal enter I can paste a new link but with the extra line in between. If I do shift+enter, the editor combines the links.

Fuggetaboutit, I've decided to work around it.

Sorry, I don't what can be done about that.  Maybe it's a browser thing and you could try another one?

That should be addressed in the next update. I'm currently waiting for that release to become stable before I apply the update to the forum.

Is this working only for youtube videos?
