Good idea. I'll give that a try tomorrow.

Alright, I got the tweet mod working. All you have to do is paste the link to the tweet, and the forum will automatically turn that into code.

If you want to use a less elegant method, you can also copy the tweet ID and use code like this:

Code: [Select]
[tweet]1138795164401639424[/tweet]

Looks like the Instagram mod works as well. It max-sizes the image, and it doesn't show comments, but I suppose that's okay.

Just like the Twitter mod, this one will automatically convert your plain link into an embed.

Alternatively, you can click the icon when composing a post, or use the tags:

Code: [Select]
[instagram]link[/instagram]
FYI, the auto conversion may leave extraneous code after the image, like "?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link" after the slash. This is harmless, but it's worth noting. So you can just delete that part of the url.

I see the lack of instagram comments as a feature, not a bug.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

Important FYI:

Our site has been under heavy attack this month by bots. Some are excessive crawlers, others are trying to deliver malicious php attacks. I've banned dozens and dozens of IPs and IP ranges just this month, which does help.

As a result, there's a CHANCE we'll exceed our bandwidth limit (at 80% now). If that happens, the site may be taken down until month's end. I submitted a ticket asking if I can be charged an extra month (or something) to keep the site up if that does happen. Worst case scenario, we'll have to upgrade to the more expensive plan to account for these waves of bot attacks.

Since I am regularly banning IPs, if you do by some horrible accident get blocked from the site, email me: xixaxfilmforum@gmail.com (forwards to my personal email).

Outta curiosity -- noticed that the certificate is "not secure." Has it always been this way or is it due for a renewal? Might be a non-issue. My new gig leaves me with a lil pocket change so JB if there's ever a need for a telethon type donation weekend, do let us know cuz I'd be happy to contribute ~

Do you mean the "connection is not secure" message? That shows up because I haven't set up SSL yet, and Chrome now likes to warn you about websites that don't have SSL across the board. So yeah, that's on me. It requires some research to do right, so I've been a little hesitant, but it does need to be done.

The only "risk" is that messages you submit are not fully encrypted, so don't include your social security number in your review of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
