may I know what your real support hours are?

because "6am to 6pm (GMT +0)" is farthest from the truth. i see topics unanswered even after 3 to 4 days.

Can you try it without the second information in the URL?

I mean this https://  www.youtube.com   /   watch?v=HEnrjYZma9A

instead of this: https:// www.youtube.com/ watch?v=HEnrjYZma9A &t=19s

@wafadul,

you cannot embed all URLs you want, there are rules and limitations, This addon is mostly created for video providers not for social login embedding. However it still supports lots of social network embedding URls, so please leave example of URLs you're using to let us check them.

@tomson what do you mean? Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are the most popular social media sites - and they embed without issues on wordpress posts.

@wafadul,

I mean URL formats, not certain websites. You should insert URLs in certain formats, a good example was the above YouTube one. So don't put any kind of URLs you should know what is embeddable what is not.

WordPress embeds or not it has no relation to wpForo, wpForo embedding function is based on wpForo functions, they have zero relation.

@wafadul,

copy these links and paste them in your forum, but delete the space between

https:// URL

And make sure that oEmbed Function is enabled.
