Dismuke's Message Board _ Ideas & Suggestions _ Find the way to display videos here!

Posted by: gregoryagogo Feb 14 2010, 03:08 PM

With all the bells and whistles on this fancy message board, there's gotta be a way to post a video! Maybe it's as simple as Dismuke checking a box from his "administrator" position?!!

Many of us share videos here, it would be nice not to get redirected away from the conversation!

In know some message boards have this feature, I've seen it "around"!!

I have the board set up to NOT allow flash movies to be embedded based on the following warning in the configuration settings:

"Flash has a built in scripting language which may or may not compromise security. As flash gets more advanced the chances of it compromising your board increases. We recommend you leave this feature set to "no" unless you trust your community."

Not something I really wish to risk. The board is already being constantly bombarded by would-be spammers. It is not visible to visitors simply because all postings by newly registered "validating" members go into a moderator queue and have to be manually approved by me before they are published - and I do not remove newly registered members from "validating" status until they have put up a legitimate posting or two. There are some not-so-nice people out there.
