Another appreciation that I detected is when uploading images. If you upload them through URL or from the gallery there is no problem, but if you upload it from the computer it does not appear and then if you want to edit it again it does not leave you and breaks the forum. A screenshot of the code in both cases.
With the videos there is no problem

It stores image files as base64 to the database.
If your site is ssl (HTPS), the image url addresses you add should be https, this is usually the case.

The larger the KB of the image file, the longer the base64 encoding.

Ahh, I just noticed you responded to my other thread and made this... I was about to ask about this again.

This is exactly what I'm trying to do...

Green is the default forum\channel title and description.

The red is the custom page title for the channel and a more detailed description that is longer than what should be included in a META description.

The blue there is something I wish I could change in the breadcrumbs as well... my reasoning for that is because the default Forum breadcrumb is ALWAYS there, which I'd like to actually remove and if you have a category with a descriptive title with another forum as it's child with a descriptive title as well... you end up with this long breadcrumb line that becomes 2 lines eventually when someone is using a mobile device. An example is below:

(From vBulletin.com)
Forum > vBulletin 5 Connect > Support Issues & Questions > vBulletin 5 Tutorials
That breaks into 2 lines on my phone when looking at the site.

Since I'm using my "Forum" page as my homepage, I don't need "Forum" there. And if the breadcrumb titles could be modified, it would work great this way:
(Forum >) vBulletin 5 Connect > Support > Tutorials

I've managed to accomplish all of this (including the breadcrumbs) through template edits, which will work for now. It would be a lot easier to manage without editing the header template for ever forum\channel though.
