Twitter embeds

Postby FXD on Wed Sep 09, 2015 12:10 pm

Wondering if it's possible to embed Tweets, the same way we can embed YouTube clips?

Maybe Facebook and Instagram too?

Let me set the scene here. Grand Final, playing Collingwood, we’re down by five goals. I think you [Greg Williams]s know what happened.

Not sure. There might be a way, but as I have never used twitter in my life I don't have a sense of how it's URLs work. It might be more complex than just inserting the URL itself. Unless I was doing something superfancy anyway. That sort of goes for Facebook and Instagram.

I'll do a bit of research on it and see what I can do

Appreciate it. With the way news and content is breaking and broadcast over social media these days it helps to be able to view the content within the forum as opposed to only a link which people have to click and leave EFH.

Twitter is fine -> see the tweet button above.

Facebook... not so. I don't think there's a way to do that that works with the way phpBB works.

What about the old highlight to quote feature I see on other forums?

Nice feature that.

That would be unlikely. It might be in the newer version of the forum software, but that's a big job I don't have time for at the moment.

I'm liking the Tweet function anyway, most news comes from there. :mrgreen:

Any chance you can work your magic for Instagram embeds? The HTML code to embded a post looks like this:
