Fluid YouTube/Vimeo BBcodes (auto-created) 1.7

No permission to download

This product creates 2 new BBCodes that will allow your users to post YouTube/Vimeo videos in fluid containers, i.e., containers that will dynamically resize if the browser window is resized to always maintain a 16:9 aspect ratio and to maintain left/right margins based on a defined percentage of the parent element's width.

Once installed, instruct your users that they merely need to include the video identifiers within the BBCode tags. For example:


  • Upon installation, your database is edited to create the two new BBCodes thereby eliminating the need for you to go through the tedious process of manually adding them yourself.
  • A button for each BBCode is added to your editor's toolbar.
  • The CSS of the video elements is configurable via the product settings.

The BBCode buttons in the editor toolbar:

Upon clicking the BBCode buttons in the editor toolbar, you simply need to enter the video's identifier between the generated tags.
