Solved YouTube playlist not displaying in forum preview mode

Post by Guest March 3rd 2016, 6:36 pm

Hey!

Since the last script changes on my forum (ref.: https://help.forumotion.com/t146030-preview-latest-topics#1001565 ) the YouTube player isn't displaying correctly in preview mode (as a guest) no more. It only happens when clicking the preview topic symbol, tho.

Looks a bit sloppy without the nice player, doesn't it? Should be something small and annoying in one of those JS we may have overlooked I guess. Anyway, help is appreciated @Ange Tuteur. Ty! Btw, if you need the player script I'll be PMing you with that one. Once again, it's copyrighted material.

Sorry for bumping this one, eventhough I'm aware Ange's not around no more. I'm still stuck with this one.

Hey,

JavaScript executes client-side when the page is loaded, so when the page is retrieved via AJAX it gets the raw HTML without executed javascripts. You can bypass this little quirk by creating a function in the global namespace that can be reinvoked. Firstly, if the script is using jQuery's docready function, remove this at the very beginning of the script :
Code:
$(function() {

and this at the very end of the script :
Code:
});
( It may vary, but I'm trying to walk you through the modification without posting the code )

Next add this to the very beginning of the script :
Code:
function parseYoutubePlayer() {

and this to the very end :
Code:
};

Lastly change the placement of the script to "All pages" and save.


Almost done !! Create a new script "in the topics" ( or whatever the previous placement of the script was ) and paste this as the code :
Code:
if (window.parseYoutubePlayer) {
  $(parseYoutubePlayer);
}


Now edit the preview script and replace this :
Code:
$('#topicPreviewing').load($(this).siblings('a.topictitle, .table-title a').attr('href') + ($(this).siblings('a.topictitle')[0] ? ' .post:eq(0)' : ' .post:last'));

by :
Code:
$('#topicPreviewing').load($(this).siblings('a.topictitle, .table-title a').attr('href') + ($(this).siblings('a.topictitle')[0] ? ' .post:eq(0)' : ' .post:last'), function() {
  if (window.parseYoutubePlayer) {
    parseYoutubePlayer();
  }
});

after this you should be good. Very good

Oh yeah!! This is exactly how I imagined how it should be after changing the preview dimensions as well. It's so fine now! Look @ that music topic preview going now. I'm falling in love with my own website over and over again lol. This is so darn good, it's absolutely fabulous!

Thanks a lot for your help without posting the original scripts, masta @Ange Tuteur Bow 2 ! Very good

Love,

Sammy.
