[resolved] Can I have more than one youtube video in a post? (11 posts)

    I am converting a B2evolution blog to wordpress version 3. The youtube plugin in my B2evolution blog allows me to put as many youtube videos as I want in a post. It also allow me to put the videos anywhere I want in a post. For example, I can put the video under text, etc.

    I just tried using this plugin in the new blog which I am creating, and it puts the video on top of the post for some reason. Also it will not allow me to add multiple videos into a post.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Wow, b2evo, that sure brings back memories!

    My plugin allows easy embedding of multiple videos no problem:

    Without a link to your site, I can't know why it's not working for you.

    I am converting my current b2 site at http://www.bikerlawblog.com to wordpress. The testbed is at http://www.mallwalkerclub.org

    I paid someone to import my b2 database into an earlier version of wordpress then upgraded to wordpress version 3.

    I tried using your plugin on a post that had multiple youtube videos in it and it only displayed one youtube video at the top of the post.

    I will play some more and let you know what happens.

    Thanks for the fast response.

    I just put it back up again. I had to restore from an earlier backup because of a screw up.

    Can you provide the URL to an example page where this is happening? I searched your blog for "youtube" and only was able to find this type of format: [video:youtube:DR5vpRUPHtM] (which my plugin doesn't understand out of the box, but with a tiny bit of code it could be made to)

    OK here is what is going on.

    First off, I started to manually import posts from my b2evolution blog into a test bed at http://www.mallwalkerclub.org . On this site my youtube videos that were embedded in a post using the B2evolution plugin work with no added plugin on the wordpress install. You can see a post that I am talking about here: http://www.mallwalkerclub.net/2010/06/19/a-simple-friday-after-work-motorcycle-ride-to-the-san-andreas-fault-california/

    Now on my second test bed here: mallwalkerclub.org , I installed your plugin. (by the way the video did not work even without your plugin on this 2nd test bed, like it did above. I have a feeling this was due to the way my programmer pulled the data from the B2evolution database and migrated it into an earlier version of wordpress, which i then upgraded to version 3)

    On the second test bed when I put my cursor in the middle of a post and click the youtube button in the visual editor on the admin screen, it puts the youtube tag and url at the beginning of the post instead of where my cursor is. The only way around this was to copy and paste the code in the html tab and not in the visual editor.

    I was able to put multiple videos into a post, but I had to do it manually by cutting and pasting in the html tag.

    It would be nice if the plugin put the video where you wanted it using just the visual editor.

    Here is an example of a post I did using the above method: http://www.mallwalkerclub.org/2010/06/19/a-simple-friday-after-work-motorcycle-ri/

    Here is an example of a post that I have to convert using your plugin with the old b2 evolution code : http://www.mallwalkerclub.org/2010/06/09/rush-slip-on-mufflers-for-harley-davidso/

    Here is that same post working on my first testbed by manually copying and pasting from my b2evolution blog to a fresh 3.0 install: http://www.mallwalkerclub.net/2010/06/10/rush-slip-on-mufflers-for-harley-davidson-touring-motorcycles-my-review/

    Correction, my first test bed is http://www.mallwalkerclub.net this is the one where I started to manually cut and past articles from B2evolution, the videos worked with no plugin installed.

    http://www.mallwalkerclub.org is the second test bed with your plugin installed!

    I take it you're using Internet Explorer? It likes to completely ignore cursor location. Firefox and others don't have the same issue.

    Yes, I use Internet Explorer as my default browser, but I have firefox as well. It is no problem for me to use firefox to do posts that have video in them.

    I guess this issue is resolved then.

    Alex, you are the man! I have been using your plugin on another blog of mine for years. This B2 conversion project is a nighmare. I am having to go through hundreds of posts, and fix the catagories, and tags.

    In B2 I had 5 seperate blogs on one site, that I am now combining to one single blog.

    When I am done, I am confident that customization, upgrades, and overall functionality should vastly improve.

    B2 was a work horse, and always worked. Trouble is that customizing it, and upgrading it was a nightmare. I cannot wait until this coversion is done.
