  • [CMS] Missing the ability to insert video files in the editor & install error message

    Hi There,

    I have 2 installs of vb setup, one with a custom skin I have designed and another brand new, untouched, clean install for comparison testing.

    Neither of them allow me to embed a video link into a post in the CMS or Forum post editor. The insert video icon is simply not there.

    I have attached screen shots of both installs with the editor shown.

    Interestingly, the video icons appears only in the blog editor on both installs. The video does not show in the blog post preview for some reason, only once the post has been made.

    Any help on this matter would be really great as this has been driving me nuts for hours!

    Also, I attached a screen shot of an error message I just received when I downloaded the latest release and installed it as the plain install I referred to above. Seemed a bit strange....

    Thanks

    From the Notification on the front of your Admincp:

    As of 4.1.10, the permission to use the [IMG] bbcode and the [VIDEO] bbcode has been split into separate permissions. The maximum images/videos allowed per post has also been split. You will now find that videos are limited to one per post. You may update the setting in the following areas (ignore the blog if you do not have it installed):
    • Settings -> Options -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Maximum Videos Per Post
    • Settings -> Options -> vBulletin Blog: General Options -> Maximum Videos Per Comment
    • Settings -> Options -> vBulletin Blog: General Options -> Maximum Videos Per Blog Description
    • Settings -> Options -> vBulletin Blog: General Options -> Maximum Videos Per Custom Block
    • Settings -> Options -> vBulletin Blog: General Options -> Maximum Videos Per Custom Page
    • Settings -> Options -> vBulletin Blog: Entry Options -> Maximum Videos Per Entry
    • Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Signature Permissions -> Maximum Number of Videos in Signature

      Thanks for the reply Lynne,

      Settings -> Options -> Message Posting and Editing Options -> Maximum Videos Per Post
      This is currently set to 1 and no video icon appeared.

      I then changed it to 0 to disable that function and no video icon appeared.

      Not quite sure what I am doing wrong.

      I have checked the settings for both the customised install and fresh install of vb and am getting the exact same result in both instances, no video icon in either the forum post editor or new article editor.

      The blog editor seems to be fine though .

      Any ideas as to how I should proceed?

      If you need any additional screenshots please let me know.

      Also should I be concerned about the installation error message?

      Cheers

      edit: I also tried changing the maximum videos per post to other values (10 & 8) and had the same result, no video icon.

        Further updates

        Hi again,

        Still cannot figure the video link out, I have added two additional screen shots, one from the admin panel and the second from the general settings panel.

        Not really sure why this is happening as I have not played around with the stylevars for the editor and the same issue is occurring in both a clean untouched install and my actual site.

        Any ideas at this stage would be fantastic, so if you have some things I can try out, please let me know.

        Perhaps there is something fundamental I am missing?

        Cheers

            Make sure that the [VIDEO] code is enabled on the per-forum level.

            Admin CP >> Forums & Moderators >> Forum Manager >> (choose forum) >> Edit Forum >> Enable / Disable Features >> Allow [VIDEO] Code

            Each forum that you wish to use [VIDEO] in must have that set.

              Hi Maurd,

              Thankyou so much for your assistance, that was exactly the problem. As a new and first time vb user some of the most obvious things are not..well..obvious.

              I really appreciate you helping me and pointing out where this problem was occurring.

              Best Regards

                  Video in CMS Articles

                  Hi!

                  Is there a way to allow that in the cms articles as well?
