    since the bbcode has changed from [YOUTUBE] fileID [/YOUTUBE] to MEDIA=YOUTUBE fileID /MEDIA... all of our posts with embedded youtube links no longer work.

    Rather than manually updating these BBCODES or running some script on the entire database, you could just create a YOUTUBE bbcode that behaves exactly like the previous one. It would have the effect of instantly making all of embeds valid again.. and it could co-exist with the MEDIA bbcode with no problem. We would then have two ways to define youtube embeds. So, I guess this isn't a question anymore.. but a suggestion.

    Sister Cherry ... i've created a [HOW TO] - Add Media / Videos to Your Posts.

    I also see what you're saying, some of your older posts aren't showing the videos.

    Give me a minute to see why it's doing that, and if i can resolve it.

    Thanks!

    :heart:
