It is not possible to maximize an embedded youtube movie to full screen.. can this easily be changed? Just a little nice to have.. Workaround is to open the movie in the youtube site itself via the available [Youtube] button.

Found this topic also discussed here:

https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=438&t=2182825

A solution there mentioned seems to work:

Hello, Pangaea.
I did't make any search on forum when I met your question. I don't know whether you solve your problem or not but I will share my BBcodes. There is no need to install any modbox or there is no need to write short YouTube links. Yo can add entire YouTube links. The only reason of being not Fullscreen is : <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param> .. ve ... allowfullscreen="true". These words make your screen full.
I just shared a video on my site as an example. When you visit you will see that it will be fullscreen.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

As far as I'm aware there is no time limit on being logged in.

Also there is not time limit on editing a post:

It weird because it didn't used to do that. On spengler it is the opposite. I generally just close teh lid of my laptop and can come back many hours later Open it up and I am still signed on there Here it seems like a 30 minute thing. But it may be something to do with automatic log in Which I probably have not been clicking ever time here. But it used to be the same here as there.

Last Poster in Muslim World Section not updating

Postby monster_gardener » Sun Aug 17, 2014 10:31 pm

Thank You VERY MUCH for Maintaining the Forum, Admins Typhoon & YMix,

Noticed that the Last Poster listing on Muslim World Thread of the Current Events Section is not updating.

Currently Typhoon is listed as the last poster in the Muslim World Thread of the Current Events Section but when the Muslim World Thread section is entered currently Parodite is the last poster of the sub-thread at the top of the page.

I have refreshed both pages to make sure that page caching is not the problem.

Not that important but puzzling.

Going to make a post there now.

Just did the test post: Seems to be working now: I am now listed as the last poster....

Puzzling..... Wondering if problem is on my end despite the refreshing of the page.

If anyone has an idea please post or PM me....

Thanks in advance...
For the love of G_d, consider you & I may be mistaken.

If anyone recently experienced trouble accessing this OTNOT site within the last 12 hours,
it was due to trouble at the hosting service provider.

Apologies.

Problems with attachments.

I have noticed a couple of times lately that with I upload an pic attachment that another is loaded with it. I am not sure how they are showing up for other people here but the attachment with this post viewtopic.php?p=112017#p112017
Showed a second pic that is on my PC as well.

Anyone else seeing things like this?

Can't say that I have.

The forum software is long overdue for an upgrade. May do it after Christmas or during the New Year holiday.

Sounds reasonable. Any chance the new version will have answered post notifications?

Don't know. Will have to see what new options are available after installation. Will check.
