Cant post video embed or Photo on Newsfeed | Forum

GH Oct 20 '11
Ok, this is weird.. Ive tried everything, updated, deleted entire directories,
As far as I know, Everything is current.

If I put a newsfeed on my main page.. Everything works perfect..

If I put a newsfeed on my group page, It doesnt.
The first comment you make, thats not indented.. you cant post a video or picture..
If you comment on a comment, the embed vid and picture works perfect..

I cant for the life of me figure out why.. The thing is, Im sure it worked when I first started building it..

Just tried it on wall.fm.. Same issue.. So I know its not me.. Its a real problem.

Any ideas?

Would you provide us with a link to this group's page?

Make a phony user, I will approve you.. and let you play..

Seems the same issue exists with Wall.

Cant belive that such a big bug hasnt been reported before..
Its really important that we use a newsfeed not a wall in our projects..
We love the look of the newsfeed, as you can comment on a comment.

Help!  We are desperate for this to work right.. Any ideas?

Would you PM me your admin details and group's URL?

I have a similar issue.

On my MAIN page, I enter some text into the NEWSFEED and click post. It gives me an error "blank page".

If I go to MY DASHBOARD which I renamed My Profile, and put some text into the NEWSFEED, it will work.

As I see you have 1.2.4 installed. Did you update newsfeed and platform?

I have just updated it and it works now.

It sounds like there may be a problem with the code for embedding videos or pictures on your group page. One possibility is that there is an error in the code that is causing it to not work properly on the group page. Another possibility is that there may be a conflict between the code for the newsfeed and the code for embedding videos and pictures.

You might want to try troubleshooting the issue by checking the code for errors or conflicts. You could also try reaching out to the support team for the platform you are using to see if they can assist you in resolving the issue. They may be able to provide you with more specific guidance or suggest a workaround for the problem you are experiencing. bluey
