Hey every, sorry if this is obvious but I couldn't figure it out.

I wanted to add my devblog but all my hyperlinks to youtube / mp4s hosted on imgur just look like hyper links. I wasn't able to figure out the syntax to have them embedd so you don't have to click the link to see the image.

Example https://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=71222.0 this user was able to have images and youtube videos directly in his post.

All help appreciated. example gif/mp4

you can do images via the [ img ]  tag, just quote a post you like to see what they did. Most people do videos just by posting the youtube URL in the text and the forum converts it.

Testing the auto conversion thing.


 

^^^^mp4 img tag wrapped

^^^^gif img tag wrapped

Looks like it can't handle mp4 gif conversions. At least in preview window.

Hm, the preview at least does not convert any of the different URLs to the same link. Going to post to see if it gets converted after the fact. Quoting that other post it does seem he just posted the url to the youtube video.

Okay, it appears I was getting faked out by the preview window not showing anything (other than the direct .gif link).

Testing one last thing, a direct link to mp4 not wrapped in anything:

a secret pro hacker tip is that if you want to know how someone did something in a forum post you can just quote it and look

Yea if you post a youtube or vimeo link it doesn't show in preview, but it ends up showing in the final post.

This is a typical Mark post, he's one of the golden level 10 children now. I'm not jealous, I think its lame to want to be a cool kid. Even though I get upset and hate on the cool kids I am actually very cool.  Gentleman

Maybe being level 10 isn't an actual thing, maybe its a metaphor, like being level 10 is something in your heart?
