By image icon you mean this: ?

If so, that would be a BBC tag, there are a few mods that cna do it or you can use one of the auto embed mods which does the same without using a bbc tag.


For the user to always go back to the topic go to admin / Configuration / Themes and Layout/ Member options /  select your theme / Change current options for all members using this theme /  Return to topics after posting by default.

The image you are referring to is a BBC tag, this tag is used as a pseudo-code, an alternative to plain HTML code, this allows users to give theirs messages a more customizable feeling without the worry of security risks.

On the mod site there are some mods that adds a new BBC tag to include  youtube videos directly on the messages, the tag used is usually [youtube]url[/youtube], there are other more complex mod that lets you copy/paste the video url and the mod will automatically convert that url to a video without the need of an BBC tag.

This are all the mods that can do that, in no particular order:

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=search;basic_search=youtube


http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=977
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2681
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=936
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3268


Package Manager
How can I install a mod that doesn't work in my SMF version?

The settings are located in index.php?action=admin;area=modsettings;sa=general  from there you can enable/disable the mod and set a custom width if you want or just use the default value.

After enabling the mod, go reply to any message, you will see a new image: 

click on it, on the textarea this tag will appear:  [youtube][/youtube]  now you only need to insert a youtube video url on between those tags, like this:

[youtube]http://youtu.be/IsxNUl1IHnE[/youtube]

and that's it, save your message, the video will appear on your message automatically.

In order to use a mod, you need to install it on your forum, download the mod, follow this instructions: http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Packages#Installing_a_Package

then follow this instructions:

The settings are located in index.php?action=admin;area=modsettings;sa=general  from there you can enable/disable the mod and set a custom width if you want or just use the default value.

After enabling the mod, go reply to any message, you will see a new image: 

click on it, on the textarea this tag will appear:  [youtube][/youtube]  now you only need to insert a youtube video url on between those tags, like this:

[youtube]http://youtu.be/IsxNUl1IHnE[/youtube]

and that's it, save your message, the video will appear on your message automatically.


The urls you posted are just examples, those aren't valid youtube urls, they are there just to demonstrate the type of urls this mod can handle.

IS this the right mod  ?

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3268

It depends on your needs, if you only want to include youtube videos, then yes, because that's all that mod does, if you want to include more sites then aeva or save are a better option as they support more sites.


Do yu only want to include videos from youtube?

Then that mod will do just that, it kinda feel weird to promote it like that since I'm the mod author.

There are other alternatives like

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=936

It basically does the same, only provides support for youtube videos.

Decision is up to you.

You will have to be more specific than that I'm afraid.

What mod did you installed?

How did you installed it?
