Embedded video
I tried to embed a youtube video in Message 96.

I just copied and pasted the code from youtube. It usually works but this time it didn't.

I have no idea if there's an error in the code or not.

Re: Embedded video
You embedded an html function. HTML is turned off.


Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Re: Embedded video
The ability to embed HTML in messages will be coming back very soon, sometime Saturday at the latest. I'm writing software now that will detect and filter dangerous HTML tags like <script> and attributes like onMouseOver. Members will then once again be able to embed YouTube videos in messages.

Re: way off topic
HTML is currently disabled, if I read Percy right, to prevent the injection attacks that were being used to hack the site.

A list of equivalent codes, which apparently we all forgot about, is here.

Re: way off topic
Thanks, I've known that.

[code](shows as typed in txt font)[/code] produces the same result as <pre>(shows as typed in txt font)</pre>

But I've seen no equivalent for <fieldset><legend>(title in top of box)</legend>
(text surrounded by box similar to qs code)</fieldset>

So I'm making do with what works.

Enjoy.

Edited by RAZD, : works in preview ...

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can use mine.

Awesome!, thanks.

Regarding the video:

Wow, Percy! you are a great dancer...

although, I have to admit, that you look a little different than I imagined

archaeologist
Someone really needs to talk to archaeologist and explain to him that bible thumping is not appropriate behavior in the science forums, and perhaps try to show him what evidence is.


Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus. -- Thomas Jefferson

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and non-believers. -- Barack Obama

We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat

It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate
