    I'd be very surprised if that option exists here. The bare URL will get highlit as a hyperlink but you'll not get a box.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Some forum sites are beginning to restrict video links.

    I had just assumed that the Vimeo videos worked the same as the YouTube ones. I don't understand enough about it to know what is making them resistant to being embedded on the forum. Some kind of Vimeo thing!

    Lars, why would forums want to restrict video links?

    It's a ForumGarden issue, I'm sure. There's a syntax for YouTube which the old vBulletin we're running knows about and transforms into a long URL to YouTube and brings back a framed video. When the old vBulletin software was made, Vimeo wasn't an issue. YouTube was baked in, Vimeo wasn't. We've not succeeded with the software upgrade path. I imagine Vimeo now works on the current vBulletin, but it doesn't here.

    I've never noticed that forums are restricting video links but I don't see many sites.

    The URL a forum has to generate, in order to watch a Vimeo video, looks like

    Code:
    https://vimeo.com/385932102
    for example, while a YouTube equivalent looks like

    Code:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ry4QBQejFU
    They're entirely different structures. If you have that "watch?v=" in a Vimeo URL, you won't see the video you're trying to get to. ForumGarden's software has never been told.

    I shall now magically teach it how.

    This says
    Code:
    (vimeo)70532693(/vimeo)
    but with square brackets, not round ones.

    That works on my screen. On the other hand I might have just inserted a SQL injection vulnerability onto the site.
