    Was this a recent thing? Just noticed it. When I quote someone, the tags are removed and the URLs are replaced with hotlinks.

    I honestly approve of it. Some people like to quote a post with a shit-ton of pictures and have a pointless reply, which gets really goddamn annoying. :lol:

    i hate it for youtube links cause you used to be able to just post the url and it would embed

    Same as thrsher. I was trying to post a youtube the other day and couldn't get it to embed. Ended up finding a youtube video in some other thread and quoting it so I could see the tag for youtube.

    I'm using Chrome too, and what I do is this:

    copy and paste the URL as usual into your comment and delete everything before the / that comes before watch?. Then put

    I use Chrome too, and I can still just paste the link. However, it only works when I post a quick reply. If I try to add the video in the "advanced" screen or edit after the initial post, I have to put the tags on manually.

    I did have the same problem, but I noticed that "https" was posted instead of "http". I removed the S each time and it works fine.

    Ah, so the script that looks for youtube isn't watching for https. All Google sites default to HTTPS these days I think.

    Should be an easy fix if Alex or his web guy has time to look into it.

    Yup, exactly. It would be nice if they could do that.

    So, in the meantime, just remove the "S" or "https" entirely.
