@a_5mith uhm... two things I don't like
Still, it's a quick workaround for now.
How hard would it be to develop a plugin to embed.ly?
I'm asking because we're having some issues with the twitter embed plugin and other embeds.
It doesn't look like it, however, I've only seen it mentioned by him in a single post - so unsure of the official status.
a_5mith reminds me that I still have a half finished embed.ly plugin somewhere... Yeah I'll probably ditch that, plenty of embedding plugins by now
Not looking so hot.
@Giorgio-Chiodi The twitter one wasn't made by me, so if the original author doesn't keep it up to date. It's GG unfortunately. You get the same issue with Wordpress and any other platform that supports plugin development. It's just Wordpress actively tells you the pluging hasn't been updated and won't work with your version etc.
@Giorgio-Chiodi Try this for the twitter...
npm install nodebb-plugin-embedly
Haven't tested it with Twitter, but this should replace the need for most embedding plugins like Twitter, soundcloud etc, as it will use embedlys api to create a "card" If you prefer, I can change the syntax so it's not automatic if you like...
[embed]URL[/embed] etc if you don't like the auto embed. It also works on the homepage, as it's not an iFrame.
What's the status with "Offsite URL Link Posts"?
@a_5mith pluggin seems to work for Twitter and Soundcloud, do you have a list of all supported websites, does it work for Facebook?
Shouldn't this type of feature be an integral part of NodeBB?? I find it very important and I'm hoping to see it happen soonish.
People are lazy, anything you can make that will simplify their lives is winner. This one feature certainly helped Social networks grow over traditionnal forums. Look kids, you can post stuff but you don't have to type anything, how cool is that?
