I have a forum where we post photos and messages from twitter and instagram about a celebrity.

Since I use PUNBB, I understand I cannot embed a twitter or instagram photo and message in my post.  It looks like embedding a photo and message associated with a tweet and/or instagram message only works with phb2.  http://help.forumotion.com/t127020-is-there-anyway-to-embed-tweets  

Thus, I post photos from tumblr, where the tumblr owners have posted photos and messages from twitter and instagram.

I noticed something strange when I post photos and messages from tumblr of tweets and instagram messages.


Here is the link to a photo from tumblr of a tweet that I wanted to place in my post.  http://dailydarrennews.tumblr.com/post/145600461532/nickpitera-darrencriss-you-are-amazing-and

First I copy the image from tumblr into my post.  




Then I copy the caption (from the tumblr image) of the tweet.   In this case, here is the caption written by the person who tweeted this photo:




I see this in my post as I am composing:



I will post type in my comments in my post and perhaps include more tumblr images (of twitter or instagram photos/messages) after this first image.


So as I am composing, I will see in my text box the following:  Image #1  (a twitter photo with a FULL caption underneath it), plus my comments, plus Image #2 (photo plus caption):





Then I will hit "Send."

However, after I hit "Send," in my completed post, instead of seeing the above (Image #1 which is photo plus full caption, plus my typed comments that follow Image #1, plus Image #2), I only see this:




So the first image no longer has the FULL caption underneath the photo.   Plus, my typed comments that followed Image #1, as well as the second image (photo with caption) has disappeared from my post.

I have tested this out several times, by deleting the emoticon (the happy face) that followed " @NickPitera:" that was in the caption of the Image #1.

When I delete that emoticon (the happy face) in the caption of Image #1, I get Image #1 (with photo and FULL caption, minus the happy face emoticon in the caption), and my comments that follow Image#1, and Image # 2 (photo plus caption).

But if I leave Image # 1 in my post as it originally is (photo with Full caption, including the happy face emoticon), then all the text in the caption of Image #1 that followed that emoticon disappears, and my typed out comments that follow Image #1 and Image #2 also disappear.

I have been carefully deleting the emoticons from the captions of twitter and instagram images (and have inserted descriptive words in brackets, ie, [happy face emoticon]).  

But is there a way that I can copy the tumblr images (of tweets and instagrams with  photos and messages) without deleting the original emoticons, so that I do not lose the rest of the caption that follows the emoticon in Image # 1, and so I do not lose any of my comments and additional images that follow Image #1?

I have allowed HTML, so I don't think that is the problem.  

Thank you in advance for any help you may offer.

Solved Re: Posting Tumblr Images of Tweets and Instagram causing my comments and Images to disappear

Post by CalvinNHobbs2 on June 14th 2016, 2:58 am

So I entered the Java Script, from that link you gave me (Admin Panel > Modules > Javascript codes management > Create a new script):


document.write('<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>');



It did not seem to help, although I'm not really sure if I dd it correctly. This is what I did:

I went to a tweet: https://twitter.com/ericspiderbrady/status/740744633706156032

This is a screenshot of what the tweet should look like:



So I copied the code to embed this tweet and pasted it directly into my post.

However, this is what I saw:



I'm not sure why it didn't work?

I also forgot to mention that after you gave me the link to the Javascript, I set up a test forum (because I am a novice when it comes to using codes, and I have an uncanny ability to mess things up).

Link to my test forum: http://dcfctestforum.forumotion.com/
Forum Version: #PunBB (like my actual forum)
Same browser: Mozilla Firefox

So I placed the Javascript at my test forum. HTML is allowed via Admin Panel and also via my Profile.

Did you activate JavaScript Management?

When you are getting the embedded code, is the box checked for include media?

Yes, I activated Javascript Management.

Here is a screenshot (sorry, the image is small-ish):




Here is a screenshot of having added the suggested Javascript:





Yes, when I'm getting the embedded code from the tweet, the box is checked for include media.

And a screenshot of my pasting the embedded code into my post:




Thank you again for your help.

There must be some code that is in conflict with the code, because it works fine on my forums.  Do you have other JavaScripts, have you modified any templates, added any customized widgets, et.?

I just set up the Test forum over the weekend and it's bare bones. I have not touched anything to do with the Modules Tab, except for adding that Javascript that was in that link that was suggested. I'm not sure what is meant by modifying the template. I did not touch anything under "Templates" (Admin Panel -> Display -> Template). I have not added any Widgets. I can set up an User account and give you the password.

Or would you like access to the Admin Panel too? I can PM you the password to my Test Forum, if that would be more helpful, so that you can look at my various settings. Thank you for all your help. I appreciate it.

The issue is the smiley in the embedded code.  When you remove it (😊), the Tweet post correctly.

To everyone who wants to embed Tweets, you need to remove any smileys in the embedded code.

Thank you SL Gray.

Who would have guessed cute emoticons/smileys could cause so much trouble?

I appreciate your time and work. Have a great week.
