Don't wanna trouble you guys, but if i remember correctly, we once had a youtube embedding option. Since the website has gotten a great redesign, will the forum get some upgrades too?

I'll try to get youtube videos working soon. just been busy.

Regarding forum software, SMF is the best free forum software there is, in terms of features. George would have to cough up the $$$ for better forum software.

We are in talks about changing the back end of the site. We'll post more information during the next couple of months. Right now we will stick with SMF, but we probably won't be using it forever, no.

Nice. Not being able to embed youtube videos is shitty. Hopefully we upgrade soon so we can so what other forums do.

SMF can do it, just not by default, it takes some code tweaking. I'll try to get it working sometime this weekend, but I'm really busy drawing thumbnails right now.. trying to come up with ideas for projects -.-;;; lol. overloaded, plus other homework.

but yeah, all the commercial forum solutions embed youtube videos by default, maybe SMF will sometime in the future, but as of now it doesn't.

we now have youtube videos again! Custom coded by myself, no need for installing a mod!

you can embed a youtube video by either hitting the youtube button on posting page, or by using the youtube tags [youtube][/youtube]

you can embed a video in two ways, and if it doesn't match in those two ways, the code will throw out an error... example

Glad you guys are enjoying the youtube embeds. I needed a break from designing stuff so I decided I would mess around with javascript for a bit.

I tweaked the code a bit more, now you can embed a video in two ways, and if it doesn't match in those two ways, the code will throw out an error... example

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=NSkMNhc04SI[/youtube]

Anyways, that was a fun little break. Suppose I should get back to my designing homework.
