    I am wondering if I am able to embed a video on a comment on a post in the discussion board plugin.

    I am able to post a link but would like to embed the video to display it better.

    Any suggestions or help is appreciated. I love your plugin.

    Warmly,
    Brendan

    Hi Brendan,

    Right now, the only way to embed a video is though using the media editor with the Pro version of the plugin.

    However you could enable this plugin which would allow embeds in comments: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/oembed-in-comments/

    I do think this would be a really valuable feature for the plugin and is actually quite a simple thing to build. So I will release it in the next free version update (likely the end of this week).

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Matt,
    That is badass. Let me know if or when you make the new release. I really dig your discussion board plugin, so far it has been working great.

    Hi Brendan,

    Really glad you like the plugin! If you’re willing, we’d love a review as it really helps us grow (https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wp-discussion-board/reviews/#new-post).

    Regardless! I’ve just released version 2.4.2 which includes support for oEmbed on replies. Could you check it out and let me know if you have any issues? I’ve successfully been able to embed YouTube, Instagram etc on my own forum.

    Thanks!
    Matt

    Matt,
    I got it to work. Thank you!

    Is there a way to code the plugin so that it shows that the video has been embedded in the comments in the backend of the site.

    See pic for details:

    Hi Brendan,

    Ah good catch! I will need to look in to that to see if that is possible. I will do have a look at that for the next version to see if we can include a fix.

    Long term, we’re looking to improve moderation and the UI overall. My personal opinion is that approving topics and replies should happen on the frontend of the site, on the topic itself, so that the experience is more visual (with the ability to still moderate from the backend as well). Hoping to have these kind of improvements roll out over the next few months.

    Cheers,
    Matt
