This attachment has 2MB. I just increased the limit in ACP so I guess it should work. Can you re-try?
Does not work with your attachment either.

Yesssssss! :beerchug:

The youtube thing is so fickle though. If you use a short YT link, no dice, playlist - no dice, needs to have watch etc.

Anyway to make it less anal?

Also is there an indent, or centre option?
Do I understand you correctly:
- You want only put the Youtube Video ID into the brackets/tags?
- You want the embedded video simply to be centered at the forum posting?

Re: image posting (again) Fuchspk(?) has done a good thing in his Stevens build thread by using a third party to post big pictures, but also attaching lower resolution ones (same pics) at the end of the posts as a sort of backup.

At the top of each thread, right next to the page number navigation, there is a tiny First unread post link. It'd be super awesome if there was a way to set a global default to always jump directly to the first unread post when opening a thread.

This small tiny link is what you mean right?
Yes that is the one. I just figured out that the small document icon in front of each thread title (when viewing a list of topics) already does this, but I still think it'd be massively convenient if the default behavior would be to go to the first unread post.
We just added a function which alters all links so that - if you are logged in and if there are unread postings - you immediately are redirected to the latest unread postings. You must have Javascript enabled and probably you must clear your cache (CTRL+F5). If you find any wrong behaviour or errors/bugs please let me know.

When I download the wallpaper you've used as a test image and try to attach it to my post the file upload form still warns me about 160kb limit. Please see the screenshot below.

I don't have an answer to this, but another forum I post on requires the full link too, so it may just be a software thing.

I want the youtube embedding to work with a variety of ways - if someone posts a shortened YT url, or a playlist - to work as well.

Any chance of vimeo working as well?

The [indent], or [centre] was a different BB code request. :)
It's all about the adventure :o .

Okay, we have enhanced the embedding function. Now you can put in a variety of different Youtube URLs/links and it will be parsed automatically. However, there are many different options how to access to Youtube video through many different URLs and hence it is not so easy to cover all possible cases. If there occurs an error prospectively or nothing is being displayed simply put the Youtube video ID (can be found in every URL) between the tags/brackets.

Also here: You probably must do a hard refresh of the browser cache with CTRL+F5 and you must have JavaScript enabled.

I'm afraid that I must agree with all the complainers. The new pages are too bright (hard to read) and there is just so much wasted white space and screen real estate leading to much too much scrolling. It's too hard to read. Log in works fine for me, however.
