How do I post media!?

Post by Matt K » Fri Apr 20, 2018 7:36 am

Hi all,

I installed a feature today that lets us embed certain media. There is a "computer screen" icon next to "table" when you use the full posting form. This gives you the [media] tag. Alternatively, you may manually enclose links in such a tab such as

Code: Select all

[media]https://youtu.be/dQw4w9WgXcQ[/media]
and you will embed that content into a post. You can use the following services (and a couple others that I kept enabled even though I'm not sure what the services offer...
  • Facebook
  • Google Drive
  • Google +
  • Google Sheets
  • Instagram
  • Imgur
  • Instagram
  • Archive.org
  • Pinterest
  • Reddit
  • Soundcloud
  • SlideShare
  • Scribd
  • Spotify
  • SoundCloud
  • Twitter
  • YouTube

You'll have to change the permissions to public for anything from social media for sure. I haven't tested anything yet other than youtube but if people want to try embedded stuff out and they run into issues I can try to help figure out what the problem is!
