I don't know. Apparently they provide an API to embed some posts but I don't have a VK account and they're going out of their way to make things difficult for non-registered users.

Edit: ok, so now I know for sure that yes, posts can be embedded but no, I can't add support for it because VK decided to make it particularly difficult. By the looks of it they are tracking which user is sharing which link and that's why non-registered users can't share/embed links that way.

We just upgraded to 3.2. Did we go a-miss somewhere with this?

Extension don't run on 3.0-Versions of phpBB
The extension system was introduced in 3.1
Okay, so I'm trying to update from 3.0.14 to 3.1.12 and it's comparing files, then I downloading files in Zip format, uploaded them to my forums. It then shows a lot of files that have changed and says it will delete them. Then it checks files again and gives me the same results. It is just a loop over and over.

If I try to download the files that have changed again, the zip is empty.

[Edit]

Okay, what I did not realize was that I would have to manually go through hundreds of files and delete them in order to update the version. Not a real user-friendly update system. After manually going through every file and folder to delete what they wanted and clicking nearly endless "Update Database" pages, my update is successful. As I feared, it broke all my styles so I will now have to search for a new one.

Had I known the update was so difficult and would lose my styles anyway, I would have just deleted the entire forum and installed a newer phpBB3 version from scratch.
There is nothing difficult about updating or (in your case) upgrading . There is a prerequisite of course, and that is knowing how to upgrade before starting. It requires reading the information available.
I have no idea what you're doing (manually going through hundreds of files) since that's absolutely a waste of time. And I disagree that the styles are broken. The style was meant for 3.0, not for 3.1 or 3.2 .

Upgrading is simple: (https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... /upgrade3/) (you may have some work cut out for you with removing all database modifications from the 3.0.x)
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

Make sure the extension is enabled. Try again in a new post.

No plans, no. You can use custom BBCodes for those, or possibly create a similar extension to convert their URLs.

Joshy, thanks your reply. The culprit was that we had certain old BBCodes that conflicted with this EXT. It's all good now. :)

If only we could parse the old links...

Please could support be added for paste.ofcode.org and pastecode.io?

They are alternatives to pastebin (already supported) that I've seen used more often recently.

Thanks!

What might be causing this appearing on top of the page from time to time?

Code: Select all

Best guess is you have an extension that does something related to Google +1. Or maybe you created a custom BBCode that uses a custom g namespace without declaring it.

No worries. If at some point you would, though, codepad.org is another one... :)

Thanks for this great effort, by the way, users love it!

I'm having issues with Liveleak videos not showing up. I don't know what the issue is, but I tried disabling this extension and used the BBcode and it still won't render. Neither does Vevo and God knows what else. Only YouTube works. You can see my post here: https://techcomputerforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=520
