Title Tag Grabber AND Video Embedding by BOP5 for VB5
Mod Version: 3.0.1, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 5.1.x Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 47
Released: 11 Oct 2012 Last Update: 30 Jun 2015 Downloads: 361
Not Supported Additional Files Re-usable Code  

.

IMPORTANT! - Updated version released here: https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=325277

All New Version 3.0

Use version 3.0.1 on VB 5.1.5 and newer (tested on 5.1.7)
It has not been tested on old versions of VB5. If you still have an old version of VB5 try the Version 2.0 download.

This mod can do two things:
  1. It can automatically grab the title of a page you are linking to
  2. It can embed video URLs automatically

For example it will turn:

http://www.vbulletin.org

to

vBulletin.org Forum - The Official vBulletin Resource!

This is working on both the simple and complex style URL BBcodes, and it will ignore existing links if you have specified a custom title.

It can also turn a link like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxEPV4kolz0 into an embedded video without use of the [video] BB Code.

In addition there is an option to auto embed old links that were previously embedded by the AME 2.x mod for vBulletin 3.x. If you still have [AME] BB Codes in your posts this mod can do its best to embed them like they used to be with AME.

Video Embedding is currently working with Youtube (both short and original URLs) and Vimeo.com videos.

The Mod should auto install, upload files as instructed in Readme (everything goes in the usual place.) Clear the system cache to see the mod work on existing posts.

If you wanted to undo the changes made by this mod simply delete the files/remove the mod/ and clear the cache. This mod does not alter the original posts, only the cached copies.

Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this.

haha thanks. i am giving vb5.0.1 a try after having a mega disaster with 5.0.0. looks like i would have to wait for a few months more before considering moving back from ipb. plugins like these are very essential for me especially considering vbseo team has not announced any plans to release a version for vb5 yet.

So it turns out I can get the mod mostly working in VB 5.0.1. If you use "Paste as Plain Text" when you paste links into the VB5 editor, they work fine in 5.0.1. If you paste as a hyperlink you get the ugly URL BBCode but you do get a working link at least.

This bug does not exist in VB 5.0.2 and the mod works well in VB 5.0.2 for those on the beta testing team, and for everyone else soon.

I have added some new features to the mod.

Besides just grabbing titles of pages you can now also automatically embed video URLs without the use of any BBCode. Just paste a YouTube or Vimeo URL into a post and (if enabled) the mod will convert it to an embedded video.

In addition to embedding video URLs the mod can also work with databases that have been upgraded from VB 3.x where the "AME" mod was in use. The AME mod is not available for VB5 yet and I don't know if it ever will be. If you didn't clear the AME tags before upgrading to VB5 you probably have many video URLs still stuck inside the [AME] BBCode.. Such as [AME]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxEPV4kolz0[/AME]. This mod can auto-embed video URLs inside AME BBCode. Again it will work with YouTube and Vimeo URLs. (Both original YouTube URLs and the shorter youtu.be URLs.)

That is awesome. Hopefully vB5 reaches stages of usability. You have solved 2 of the issues I have with it!

Sorry for the delay- this mght happen if there were many URLs to fetch at once- or some other reason it was going slow. Increasing the max time to 60 seconds should help if possible.

Does this happen all the time or only on occasion?

I installed it on my site and it works quite nicely. However some website developers embed a shortened link on the page in the Title Tag. This makes the Title Tag not display appropriately.

Example:
http://businessdayonline.com/2014/07...vote-tomorrow/#.U7w9MpS9nmc

The above link does not display because of the highligted part.

is it possible to fix this somehow?

http://businessdayonline.com/2014/07...vote-tomorrow/
without the highlighted part displays apprpopriately

Updated-

In my test I couldn't replicate this problem. I had to take a guess at the problem URL because the VB software here shortened it.

Is this the URL that was having the problem?

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If not please paste the exact, full, URL not working inside the [code] BB Code.

If that was the URL causing the issue then please let me know what version of VB 5.x and what version of PHP you are running, and if possible, a link to a thread where it happened.

Installed the mod on vB 5.1.5 because the included video link is not very useful if users can not user YouTube Short codes (even though it states it's supported format). This worked perfect for embedding YouTube videos.

Marked as installed...... Thanks! Time saver!

Installed and working on 5.1.6.

Having an issue when editing posts though. Links show up truncated when editing, and as such, the link is no longer rewritten once the post is saved. Not sure if that's an issue with the mod or VB5's forced truncation though.

/edit
Got the above bit worked out. Was the forced truncation. Modified the bbcode_url functions and all's well.
