Solved Forum Not Working

Post by Zcat on January 2nd 2012, 6:52 pm

For eight months now i've tried to get someone to fix my forum. You cannot post video's or pictures. I have to use photobucket to get the codes, image links, html codes and now, i can't even use that to post video's now. I cannot post announcements because none of my icons at the top of the box works. I can't change size, color, add url, link, video's nothing. My other administrator and members cannot do any of this stuff either, neither of us can run the forum in a functional way! I need somebody to get serious and finally fix this problem.

All anyone would have to do is go into my forum and try to post video or anything else. Them go on into the AP>Announcements and try and create one of those, you'll see what i'm talking about. It's been a year now, and no one here has yet to find a solution, or go over to my forum and fix the problem. If you can't help me on this forum, would you please give me the name of someone who can and where i might get in touch with them at. Thanks.

There isn't one because you can't post video's or pics thats the whole problem. That's why you don't see any on my forum. I need someone to fix the problem thats causes me not to be able to post any video's or pictures on my forum. I also need someone to fix the problem so i can leave an announcements, the icons don't work above the comment box. Maybe it's the setting or something on ther forum I don't know that why i'm here. It all stopped working last year when you guys did the whole traffic exchange deal.

Sanket....When you go to the link i posted read what's written below the video on the thread. This is the only person who's able to post a video on my forum. Read what she has to do on order to post that video. Hopefully this will give you a little more information than what i've given you. Thanks.

Why is everyone having so much trouble? Can you please tell me what we're doing wrong? I want to say, how did you do that (posting video)! Thank you for taking the time to go over to my forum. Did you check the to see if you could post an announcement? The icons in the box where you can post announcement does not respond when you try and click on them. Happy New Year.


Sanket, I was thinking maybe my forum setting were wrong or something. I have no idea.

OK...excellent. I went over to the forum and tried to post different video. No luck, as long as i use the code you used to post the video, i can get that same video to post. We're desperate over there to be able to post video and pics. Thank you.


Code? I use the url or embedded code when i try to post a video.

Sanket - first of all both Zcat and I appreciate the help!

I am having the same problem that Zcat described above.

I used to be able to just c/p the embed codes into the link box above this message box and it would appear.

I used to at some points since we've had P&S could just copy and paste directly into the empty message box and the board would automatically make the adjustments to adhere to the forumotion parameters.

I would just keep doing one or the other as you guys seemed to make periodic adjustments over time.

Can you please just advise what code I should use for the different videos....for example [ i m g ] XXX [ / i m g ] (no spaces) is used for pictures. What would the code be for just video. I seem to get UTube/MRC most.

And then let me know if I post that code into the icon box or directly in the message box.

Also I am getting a lot of NO POST SPECIFIED error messages lately.

Again, thanks for your help. It is very much appreciated.

Zcat, firstly you don't have to input the whole embed code in the video field.

Thats the reason i ask what code are you adding.

Kathryn K, i would suggest you to make a new thread so that i can help you & Zcat properly.

Sanket, when i try to post a video i use the embed code or url. I try both with each icon. I use the link icon, flash icon, and the video icon i try both the embed and url code in each one.


I want to learn how and proper codes to put up video's. I spend a lot of time trying to put of videos. I would like for you to go step by step and show us how.


I was downloading video's to realplayer and then to photobucket. Photobucker refigured the codes, then i would post them on our forum. Its to time consuming, and i couldn't get that to work anymore on our forum.

You just need the url code.
Give me a example of the URL code that you would add for any video from youtube.

The below is url i use if i'm tryimg to post video from a blog. I normally just right click on my mouse and click "copy video url."

If it's a youtube video i use the one posted in the share icon under the video.

Also, you mention i didn't need to add the whole embed code. What part of embed code do i leave out? Thanks.

See thats the only thing you need to add. So basically just add that url.

I add the above and put the url in the middle?


I tried adding the url in the flash icon, video icon to post the video. It didn't work. I also tried in the link icon. Which one are you putting the url in? You say just add the the url, do i add anything before or after i enter the url (code wise i mean). Thanks



Do you think you could just give me step by step directions on exactly how you got that video to post? Specific direction is what i'm asking for. Smile

Sanket, everyone on my forum has tried that. We use to be able to post video's using that method. It's not just me thats unable to use the example you posted it's everyone on the forum. That's why i wondered if the setting were wrong are something. I tried it again numerous times over on the thread KK put up on our forum. KK spoke of this problem in her comment above. I don't know what the difference is that allows you to post video's on my forum and the rest of there can't. We've all used the below up until it stopped working.
