Solved Adding video

Post by tomdavid on October 24th 2014, 3:52 am

If I wanted to add a video to our forum (www.youtube.com/embed/mugAN5aNStM) would visitors to the forum be able to click on it and see the video? Or would only registered users be able to click on it and see the video?

If as adm I added it to it's own thread, how could I make it viewable to visitors and to registered users.

Administration Panel => General => Forum => Categories and Forums => Click the Edit button and you can configure permissions there.

I didn't see an Edit button. Is the following what you were referring to:



It shows that Members and Guests are checked. But guests cannot play the music video. But if a member logs in, he can see the URL and click on it and the video will open. How can a guest see the video?

you have the video in a widget correct

goto acp>modules>Portal&widgets> choose either forum or portal whatever page you put it on
if you chose portal click Structure

on the structure your widget should have a x/checkmark
click it and set your permissions

It is just a thread and I added


"Strangers In The Night" (with lyrics) - Frank Sinatra -

www.youtube.com/embed/mugAN5aNStM

But when a guest clicks on the URL, it does not play unless the person logs-in.

goto acp>general>security> Disable external links to guests in messages : No

if that dont work

i dont see any permitions for video and i see you have them all on so the only thing i can think of is forumotion disabled videos for guest as a security measure to keep people from lagging you site and taking it down by opening up your page 1000's of times
