Soundcloud link doesn't show up as embedded
« on: June 17, 2020, 04:01:35 pm »
Hi All


New to the world of forum creation.  I had a look through to see if there was an option I needed to activate in order to have posts from users including links to SoundCloud show up as embedded...


Any ideas?

Post example url.

Not all urls will embed it depends on format.

That url format is not supported as embedding at this time.

Is there a way to at least show a preview of the link as opposed to just the hyperlink? Some forums I visit will show a graphic of the SoundCloud link which is aesthetically much nicer than just a link in the post.

You could use a Image link Like [ URL =  Site address][ img ] your image link [ / img ] [ / url] Remore the spaces between brackets

There is no way to add custom BB codes, eh?

Not at the moment. Soundcloud is tricky to embed. I can only emebed if the information is in the url which is the same as the embed html code if id's are different can't embed it.

Not a problem.  My forum is music related and we have members who post links to their music using the software that the forum is focussed on.  It would be nice from an aesthetic standpoint to have the links play directly in the forum rather than having to go to the site.
