    iframe tags allowed?

    Are iframe tags allowed or could they be? I'd like to be able to share things like this:

    <iframe allowfullscreen src="http://edg3d.io/embed.php?e=y2IOHgxm64R3Csh&w=400" height="300" width="400" frameborder="0" seamless scrolling="no"></iframe>

    It's a 3D viewer for SketchUp models which allows the user to orbit, pan and zoom so they can see the model from all sides.

    Edit to add: I think this link will let you see the model but the other one would show it in the post.

    For security reasons we don't have it enabled. I can however modify our youtube plugin to enable the embedding function by just posting the URL used for the src parameter (http://edg3d.io/embed.php?e=y2IOHgxm64R3Csh). If that will work for you, just give me a day and I'll see if I can get it going.

    Thanks Darren. That'll probably work fine.

    I've updated the plug-in. You just need to copy the URL that is in the src parameter of that iframe string and post it in your post as text. The plugin will recognize the url and parse it accordingly when you submit your post/thread...

    Let me know if that doesn't make sense or it's not working for you and I'll help out.

    Here's an example:

    http://edg3d.io/embed.php?e=0LmWHSkx1VJUqXL&w=800


    http://familywoodworking.org

    BTW...the &w=400 part of the url is ignored and I overrode it with a sized that looked like it would be more viewable.

    Thanks Darren,

    So I'm seeing my model in my original post. Is that because of the change?

    Let's see if this works:

    Well, it seems to for me.

    FWIW, this is a new, as yet unreleased viewer thing I've been testing. It's still in beta testing but hopefully soon it'll be unleashed.

    Thanks Darren.

    Yeah, it's picking up the url in the iframe string you posted.

    I'm still working out some bugs with the plugin, so may see some odd things happening yet.
