I am still using 7.5.5, when I put in a link from You Tube and then hit post all I get is the link no video. Anyone know whats going on?

Also how do I create an avatar directory or what ever I have to do so people can download their own avatars.

Ok for the first part make sure you are using the correct UBB tags in front and rear of the link...also if I remember correctly there was something about the link that had to be adjusted (but I am rusty to be honest).


For the second.... there is a folder for user avatars in the UBB directories.. you just have to allow users to upload their own avatars in the Control Panel (and make sure that the folder is read/write enabled).

Short answer..if you need a more detailed one, I will write it out in a bit when I get home from work.

A url to your site would help.
So we can see what is going on.

Your profile link is broken.

Well I will leave the video linkage up to the experts (I am not really adept at adding them... I have them working on my board but I forget how I did it)...

As for the avatar uploads is that working now?
