For those of you who are not aware of this, through the use of Media tags, you can simply post the URL of any of the designated Media tag content, and a media player will be automatically embedded in your post displaying the content you linked to. Listed below are all of the available Media tags.

 

Also, for those of you who like to manually type out your BBCode, I have also listed all of the available BBCode tags too. For anyone who would like to manually type out their BBCode but do not know how, you can do so by clicking the very first icon on the top toolbar of the graphical editor which will then switch it to BBCode view.
 
If anybody has any suggestions for any new tags that would making posting easier, let me know. If enough people or I think it makes sense, I will try and create it.

Helpful information.  I may use it one day.

I think I am going to add code to automatically convert URLs that link directly to an image file to an embedded image. If anyone thinks this is a bad idea, let me know. I know this would be a huge convenience for me and probably others as well. In the event that you would specifically want a link posted instead of an embedded image, you can always use the URL tag to create it, and then it shouldn't automatically convert.

Okay, any URLs linking to images should now show up as embedded images 700px or smaller and they should also link to the full-sized image. :D

Added two new Media Tags.

 

Google Drive Image (Post Google Drive images now without converting--simply post the URL.)

Google Map (Post the URL to any Google Map, and it should automatically embed it.)

Any way to figure out how to link directly to a OneDrive video?  Here's an example of the autogen'd embed code and a direct linke:

I've seen sites do it before, and also add imgur albums with direct album links, it will display an array of pictures and you can click ones to view. It would be very helpful!


Hit "Like This" if it helped.

I'm not a developer, so it's a lot more work for me to get the code right, but I'll see if I can do it when I have some free time.
