Why is it since you re-arranged the forums I can't embed You Tube into so many threads? Honestly this "the administrator doesn't allow links to this site" is getting a bit old already.

 

I'm trying to embed your WG vids from You Tube, for new player. Why do these fall into the forbidden category?


 

Here are the ones I tried.  I've tried twice to link them here and they don't work either.

World of Tanks PC - Explaining mechanics - Visibility system: View range

All of the "I am the (insert vehicle type here)"

and another You Tube vid I have used previously bye bye o-ni


 

Pretty poor form that you 'fix' something (that wasn't broken) and in so doing you break it! :facepalm:

Maybe they decided that some forums/subforums won't have access to embedding videos from youtube? Is it only specific areas you can't post them?

New Player section of the forum.  Some others too, can't recall. Never was a previous issue. Happens since the re-org of forums. Also couldn't embed on this one. Tried to embed the vids that wouldn't work on the Newcomers section.

 

I don't think its on my end, I get a message from the forum that says my links are from sites the Administrator doesn't allow, kind of a pop up, like you see when you have a new post to a thread your reading. This makes me think the permissions are not set properly.

 

Thanks GOIVIT, wasn't posting about WoT though, maybe read?

I have just checked and you should be able to post videos using the "youtube" command in the reply window. I checked the Newcomers section as well as this one. PM me with a list of the sections you mention, and I'll see what I can do to help you out.

Why did the tank threads all get combined into one? Now it is not sorted by country and class, just sorted by class. This actually makes it a pain in the [edited]to find posting on certain country tanks or td's. PLEASE go back to dividing the tank forums to country and class tank.!!!!

GhostPrime, still no luck  got this again

"You have entered a link to a website that the administrator does not allow links to" Will now reboot, maybe its some InternetExploder issue (I don't think so).

Reboot still nothing. It appears I can't embed YouTube anywhere now.

Kind of makes the forum useless to me for assisting anyone.

 

 


 

I can't embed that vid here either, Ndtm.

I do know how to embed. I'm getting an error that says that vid is not allowed, its not an issue with knowing how to embed. Thanks for the suggestion none the less.

 

 

 

Well that provides me with a reason to play rather than participate here.

If you embed you get the error. If you use the 2nd box and post a link you do not.

If you click on the youtube icon in the forums, put the youtube link in "Paste Youtube Video URL". That works.

Try removing the S from HTTPS:// in the URL. I 've noticed in the past that HTTPS:// links are not allowed but if you delete the S for HTTP:// it is allowed.

Not sure if its related but I've never been able to post youtube vids...tried at least a hundred times by now using the youtube option when replying by putting in the full URL, the shared URL, embedded code version but always gives me that crap about "Administrator doesn't allow links to blah blah blah". Its really stupid because I can't even post stuff from WGNA's official youtube channel ffs which makes this whole situation hilariously stupid.

 

 

I just gave up after a while and stuck to posting them as a URL which usually results in someone posting the vid that I then quote into my post.

Any reason other than WoT refuses to address the horridly stale map situation that the Forum Administrators removed the  'Map Discussion' thread?

Why such radical surgery?
