LOL, I'm sorry to hear that; it's quite unfortunate that my mod doesn't work on your website.  It's one thing if your forum is having trouble installing a mod through the package manager.  It certainly is a very different problem if the additions my mod needs to make to files fail, simply because the search code (apparently) does not exist.

I wish I could help you further, but no one seems to have the problem you're having.  Everyone that has had difficulty installing my mod through their package manager experienced no problems at all with installing it manually.

Well if I had remembered about using [youtube=425,350][/youtube] as suggested by matjazz
 instead of just [youtube][/youtube] tags that your mod instructs us to do, I wouldn't have had to make my previous post. I remembered reading that earlier in this thread so I tried it and it finally works.

I'm glad you got it working, though I can't fathom how you got the mod to work when you had a parse error in Subs.php.

I posted earlier that I found two Subs.php files one with a ~ after it. I renamed the one with the ~ and did the same with Post.template.php~ and Modifications.english.php~. I then added the codes for the mod to those files.

Guess what!!! I just found out it only works with Firefox!!!  In IE7 it just shows a box with a redX:

Below is the same tag posted in Firefox:

Now I'm totally confused. It was a heck of a lot less hassle to convert three IPB forums over to SMF a couple of years ago than making this mod work correctly!!!!!!!!

I just tested it on another computer with IE6 and it works fine so evidently the problem is in IE7. This can be serious since Micro$oft is forcing IE7 upgrade with XP updates, that's how I ended up with IE7, I certainly didn't want it. >:(

Thanks 4fit. Unfortunately, they don't for me with IE7. They show up in every other browser that I've tried. I tried checking various settings in the options of IE7 but nothing helped. I just can't believe the hassles I'm having with this!! Could you do me a favor and see if you can see them in this link using IE7?

I'm giving it up for tonight but I'll check back in the morning.

Update: I posted my problem on a geek forum and about 40% of IE7 users were seeing red X's. The fix is to install flash since IE7 evidently does not have it installed when you download it. Below are my comments on the geek forum.

Thanks everyone, I installed Flash Player and now it works but I'm going to get a lot of people saying they can't see the vids due to IE7 crap. I don't see why they can't have Flash installed out of the box since Flash is so popular. I hate %$#$# IE7 crapola!!!!

I've tested it out on many new versions of major browsers; all worked clawlessly.  The idea of reinstalling flash to IE7 seems correct to me.

Was it only the Flash with my embed code that returned a red 'X', or was it all Flash applets?

Darn! I'm sorry Marlon, I was going to check other flash applets but once I had installed flash I could no longer check.

In my forum I don't know why Youtube tag remains unparsed. I have enabled html, flash from post settings. Checked manually that all 3 files are edited properly. But still the mod refuses to work. Tag remains unparsed.

Check the problem area: http://www.portal4webhost.com/webmaster_tutorials/all_cpanel_tutorial_videos_goes_here-t21.0.html#msg21

Any Idea where's the problem?

Use the [youtube=425,350][/youtube] tags.  The way your tags are formatted will function only in the next release of this mod.

Language Integration

To make the mod work with your language, simple open Modifications.*.php, where * is the language you wish to integrate the mod into, and add $txt['youtube'] = 'YouTube'; to its own line in the file.

I use classic and it has no modifications.english.php file. And it's not working on the forum.

I have the .gif and I did edit the post template. There must be something I need to do in another file. Can you tell me what that might be?

Thanks.
