I fixed that for you. If you ever see anything like that, just hit report and staff will take care of it. It happens when folks post the you tube link a certain way.

It should be like this (without spaces):

h t t p:// www . youtube . com/watch?v=xxxxxxxxx

No tags, just paste the link. No s in http, and only the v=XXXXXXXX

I hope that helps.

You would spare some time by fixing the issue in the code instead of fixing it in posts. It's not that hard to put a filter on it, get some coders here ^^

There's nothing to "fix" - it is working as intended.

Again, it's not a bug. That's how vBulletin works.

Okay, then what can we call it? I mean, how can it not be a bug when a wrong URL completely messes up a thread, at least the design of it. It makes it ugly, so vBulletin wants ugly forums?

I think you've asked and answered your own question. If the URL is wrong, then misbehavior should be expected, both with the links and the way a standard html page is rendered. When entered correctly, everything works.

No need to go on about this. I hope we're all on the same page.

May I add that this aggravates the @#^#%&#$ out of me. Some of the you tube links is 'feature' that needs 86'd others it's the 'embedded' other times it's the 's' in https... ARRRGGGHHHHHHH

Is there now a "Known" rule that we follow to get just the link instead of embedded?

Before I had to go and get the link from the posters page rather than the video page (on you tube).

Glad this has been re-opened. A bug is a bug, regardless of who has ownership of it.

I believe you post the link to have it a link, and use the [youtube][/ youtube] bbcode to embed.

You only put the video random string of letters/numbers at the end of the url inside the tags.
