vimeo flash and page hijack
« on: October 09, 2011, 11:59:25 PM »
I just tried adding a flash video from Vimeo and used the same method I've always used for YouTube and others ...

specifically, I added    flash=dimensions  --- the web page address ---- end flash

Now as soon as the page loads it immediatly jumps on to the Vimeo page rather than embedding the video into the thread page.  This happens too fast to even get to the edit button so I don't even have a way to modify it now.

Any suggestions?  Can a mod or admin get into the page and delete the embedded link for me?
And any explanation of what I did wrong here?


The problem is in this thread

Edit:
Didn't seem to effect my netbook, so looks like a browser issue.

I managed to get in and delete the embedded video.  Everytime I'd load my lyrics page it would jump straight to the Vimeo page instead.  

I don't know if the problem is with a Vimeo script or with my browser .... I've picket up a virus on this laptop which keeps hijacking about half of my searches, no matter what search engine I'm using ... sometimes locks my system and does other odd things ... got a blue screen once.  I guess it's time for new anti-virus.

But as for the page and link, I think I got it fixed ... I just dropped the embedding option.
