Solved Picasa slideshow

Post by ramsnake on January 30th 2012, 12:53 pm

Hi people

I cannot for the life of me get the picasa slideshow embed code to post correctly. I have tried hanging [flash(600,400] etc around the whole code just the address. Nada! I know it can be done as I have seen it in action on another forum. As far as I know BBcode is on and have not been able to find anywhere to turn on html so am assuming in my version, very recently created that it is on anyway. Any one got any ideas?

So add it directly in the post. Also, make sure you have html enabled in your forum.

The option for Allow HTML should be in the same place as the BBCode option. Exactly it should be right below the BBCode or above it.

Thanks guys. I have found that and turned it on but it is still not rendering anything but the code! Should I be dumping it between [flash][/flash] or something else?

Right this is interesting as it is showing html is on under the smilies but further down on the left disable html in this post is checked? It is still not working when I uncheck that? Really weird!

After saving and it hasn't worked, I go back to edit and find that disable html in this post is checked again
