Phpbb2 to Phpbb3 Perfect, but one big problem

Post by raul.lnx » Sun Dec 16, 2007 3:49 pm

Hello:

I have a big forum with about 7000 users and 350.000 posts. There are a los of post with youtube videos. I im using html code. <embed src=......... >. Now, i have a copy of my forum with phpbb3, all is working perfect, but i can't see videos. I know the BBCODES, but it is for new posts .....

¿How can I enable ONLY some html tags in phpbb3 ?? Is it possible ? Or ....... must i edit and change all posts with the new [bbcode] .......[/bbcode] ¿¿¿¿

THANKS

i've got the same problem,

this partially solves my problem and is definitely the way forward for the future,

but if anyone has any bright ideas for converting existing videos i would greatly appreciate it.

otherwise i would have to give the mods of manulay converting the vids as and when they come across one. :lol:

You cannot use HTML in phpBB3. You'll have to add a custom BBCode and go back and change the HTML to the BBCode, or write a script to do it.

In phpbb2 i allowed html in posts. For example this:

<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/xm7IAD3o3_I" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed>

Now i hace phpbb3, and i have a BBCODE called [youtube]. It works perfect if I create a new post and write

but my problem is the next:

How can i convert old posts in html to bbcode ??

<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/xm7IAD3o3_I" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed>

At the moment, "manually" is the only way to do it.
