Didn't something like that happen other times that the Forums have been worked on? Maybe they're doing upgrades. I hope we get likes back again.

I sent a email yesterday to Eric about all these the spammers getting onto the forum lately so maybe he's making some changes there ???

Any kind of update on this? Does anyone have any news at all?

It would be nice if we could get this fixed before the next List 'o Crap.

Didn't this forum have a "Like" feature, that broke 2 years ago?  I'm not holding out a lot of hope for a resolution on this embedding thing.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

I miss the likes, but I'd much rather have embedding returned to us first, if possible.

I PMed torgosPizza a couple days ago asking about this. He hasn't responded.

I experimented with some potential workarounds, but those didn't pan out.  You can run native HTML in this forum with a specific tag,, but the Iframe tag used for embedding videos doesn't work with that.  I think it's intentionally disabled.

@CJones: Sorry - I hardly am here anymore. We have so much going on that I've been hyper-focused on the site. My apologies.

As RVR figured out, yeah - I didn't realize that disabling Flash would disable other embeds. (I figured most things use Javascript+HTML5+iFrames nowadays..)

Anyway it should be working again. I'll try to get Likes added back in, too. (I really, REALLY hate the SMF forum software's package system. Basically adding a new "module" for something like that actually requires modifying your code, as opposed to just "hooking" into it and chaining new features along that way.)

I'll get to that asap. Sorry for the delay, everyone.

Much appreciated. I'm under no delusions about this place. I know that message boards are a pretty low priority as far as social media goes these days. I'll take whatever quality of life you can find the time to maintain for this little band of misfits. :^)

Ha, thanks Pak. Glad to see all the familiar faces (well, most of 'em).

Looks like embeds are working again.

Weirdly, the Likes system is supposedly installed as well, but I'm not sure why it's not showing up. I'll investigate a bit later tonight - I've got some performance issues that are taking all of my time, along with the Roku app integration I'm finishing up. But I'll dedicate some time to getting this place back into shape soon, I promise.
