Custom Vimeo BBCode for UBB.Threads
I’ve had quite a few customers request a custom BBCode for Vimeo, so rather than go into a long post about it, I will post the file and some short instructions on how to implement.
There are really two ways to add a Custom Tag. One being to manually type all the appropriate fields in and the other is to import from a previously exported tag from a working UBB.Threads site.
Since I have one working on many sites, I exported it for your convenience.
The file to import into the Custom Tag Editor is below:
To import this file, go to your Admin Control Panel, Content tools and select the 2nd Tab ( Custom Tag Editor ).
The URL to this page would be:
where the colored text would be replaced with the base URL to your forums.
Locate the bottom menu ( or tabs, if you prefer ) and click on “Import New Tags”.
Once imported, you will see the following form:
The ‘Custom Tag’ I used is ‘vimeo’, however you are free to use the more common ‘video:vimeo’ if you would like. I prefer the shorter / less typing approach.
So when the user inserts the tag into a post with the following as an example:
[ vimeo ]http://vimeo.com/23199805[ /vimeo ] ( no spaces )
The result is:
Have at it and enjoy !
