    Well, the test appears to have worked OK

    No problems for me when clicking on the square box for full screen.

    But, you must have trawled through Phase One’s archive to find that clip, it is quite an old one.

    For those who wish to embed off-site files within their posts (as opposed to simply showing the URL) there are certain rules that need to be followed.

    1. The host site must use Secure Socket Layer. This means the URL will be ‘https’ as opposed to ‘http’.

    2. In order to appear embedded, the URL must be on its own line without additional text

    3. The URL must not be hyperlinked. By default, the forum software will automatically make most URL text hyperlinked. That hyperlink must be removed using the broken chain ‘remove link’ function found within the toolbar immediately above the text entry area.

    Chris, are these rules now to be considered a permanent feature of the photopxl site with no work-around for those here who wish to embed their work  and who don’t have Secure Socket Layer websites?

    Thanks

    Sorry Keith but he answer at this stage must be yes. I should add these are not rules arbitrarily applied by us but ‘features’ of the environment of a WordPress website. Perhaps someone with more than my scant knowledge can offer a work-around.

    Thanks, Chris, understood but saddened.

    Best to you.
