Challenge of the day:

I am currently using the 'info sections' to have ready access to important information in nice shiny pop-up windows

What i wanted to do was embed Youtube videos to appear in said popup window

Youtube embed coding:

<object width="425"height="344"><param name="movie"value=""></param><paramname="allowFullScreen"value="true"></param><paramname="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embedsrc=""type="application/x-shockwave-flash"allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

but it doesnt want to work.

The other thing thats bothering me is that i cannot have multiple info sections such as

the plague quarter
the military quarter

etc as each new 'info section' contains the same as the first one

any thoughts help or solutions greatly appreciated

Hi Rhiannanna!

I'm sorry to say that I can't get the videos to work in the facebox popups when you use IE. It works just fine with FF. I've looked into it and it's actually a problem with the facebox coding... I've e-mailed the author about it and I haven't gotten a response. *shrug*

As for your info sections, just use a free form text/HTML box. What you'll have to do is find the address of the info page, then add it to a link in the free form box, like this:
<a href="ContentControls/Support/InfoSectionViewer.aspx?GuildID=258012&GuildInfoSectionID=217649" rel="facebox">Info Box 1</a>
  • Replace the GuidID (in red) with yours
  • Replace the GuildInfoSectionID (in purple) with the info page address
  • Replace the text (in blue) with the title of your info box
I hope this helps  :/
