Plugins for 1.0.2
Maybe you can help with this. I just installed the “Easy Video Embed” into my forum (bbpress 1.0.2 – Crystal Theme). The plugin is activated and the list shows in the admin panel.
How do I access the application from the admin panel to post a video? I looked at posting but there is no video posting in the area…just photo upload links.
I know you need a code from the video site; but there is no place to post it.
The forum is: http://www.homedesignsense.com/forum
Can you provide a link to the “Easy Video Embed” plugin here on this website, and we might be able to shed some light?If you downloaded it from another website, i’m afraid we’ll not be able to help unless the author of it frequents this forum regularly (fyi – unlikely)
So you know, if the plugin was a bbpress0.9 plugin, your chances of getting an admin panel are about 1/100. Your chances of it getting an admin panel if you’re using bbpress1.0.2 are very close to non-existant.
Basically, if you could also expand on this a little that’d be ace:
I know you need a code from the video site
What sort of code, and from what video site?
I am going to guess it’s this plugin:
From that page, it does not appear there is an admin page. Just use the bbcode [video][/video] with the URL of the video in between.
There is no admin and there doesn’t appear to be any buttons added to the editor. Just follow the instructions. If you do that, and have a problem, post back.
That’s correct. So; there is no easy (download) way for members to post their videos? Does the code take you to the video page or post it directly on the forum?
Did you try the plugin? It seems to me the user just puts the URL of the video inside the video shortcode/bbcode, and it embeds the video into their post or reply. Has that not been your experience?
Do you have bbcode or bbcode light installed with your editor now? If so, you can add a video button there to make it even easier.
There was another video plugin for bbPress where you just pasted the URL of the video in to your reply, and it did all the embedding for you. I think that was called bbVideo and for 0.9.
That’s a very old plugin and probably will not work with 1.0.2
Tried the easy video plugin. There is no place in the post area to add a video. Just the post and images. Is there something in the easy video that needs to be changed to work with my template (Crystal)?
Will download the bbcode buttons and see if anything works. Will let you know.
Paste this into the post area:
After you submit the content, does the video show up embedded? That’s how it’s supposed to work. No more to it than that.
I think I see the confusion.
Pete, you’ve assumed the plugin does something it doesn’t do. It doesn’t allow you to upload videos or images, and doesn’t give you a separate post field in which to type the URL of the video.
All it does, like every other forum software, is allow you the automatic convertion of some code into HTML.
What your user types:
[video] www.youtube.com/abcdefghijk [/video]
What bbPress outputs:
Sorry, but hope this helps clear things up
chrishajer – tried posting the video link. No video just a headline. Should a video show up or should it send you to the video page?
This is the page. don’t know if you will see it without being logged in.
It does not appear that the plugin is processing the short code. I would say the plugin is not working in your installation. Did you activate the plugin? Can you post a screenshot of your plugin admin screen?
A video should be embedded, like this page:
That is using a different plugin in an older bbPress installation.
Fatal error: Call to undefined function bbad_ad_block() in /home3/homedesi/public_html/forum/bb-templates/Crystal/post.php on line 1
Sorry Pete, when trying to help I get this error message.
I get the same; but at least you can see the same post. There is no video. That is exactly what is there when in the admin panel.
Why is there an error anyway?
Your theme is throwing an error before the content of the topic is posted, so we can’t see if the plugin is working or not.
Can you change back to the defaul theme and try again, or try on a development enviroment instead?
There is no default theme in the admin panel. Can I download it from somewhere for my version? Also; not familiar with “development environment”.
On this page:
There is no embedded video, just the code you pasted in there. The plugin is not working. It did not parse your post for the video bbcode and replace it with embed code, which is what the plugin is SUPPOSED to be doing.
So…is there any way to get an actual video embedded and have it play as in your site?
That’s normally the job of a plugin, but this one is not working. You can try contacting the author of that plugin to see if it can be updated.
I just installed this plugin on a trunk installation (so 1.0.2 or even 1.1-alpha) and the video gets embedded just fine:
There is some weirdness because it looks like the plugin should have an admin page, but the link doesn’t work (that could be fixed if you needed it). But just pasting a youtube video URL into the post showed me an embedded video as expected.
Tried the bbvideo as you suggested. Does not work. Tests are still posted under “Interior Decorating & Design Forum. There are two different test posts.
What went wrong or isn’t the plugin working?
The plugin worked for me, so I am unsure why it is not working for you. You have a lot more plugins that I do, so maybe there’s a plugin conflict.
You might want to get some local help with this. The two plugins I know of are not working for you.
I looked at this post:
1. you don’t need the [video] bbcode/shortcode to use bbvideo.
2. you don’t need to post the complete embed code, just paste in the link to the video and the plugin does the rest.
I just made a post in that same topic the way you’re supposed to do it with bbvideo, and it did not work. Not sure if you have the plugin activated or not right now, but if you do, it’s not working the way it’s supposed to.
