  1. Just to add for anyone reading the above -

    if you go to http://www.reddit.com/oembed?format=json&url=https://www.reddit.com/r/reactjs/comments/14s3r1j/adding_the_new_threadsnet_social_share_button_to/?rdt=53260&scheme=https (this is the URL produced by Invision to connect to Reddit to get the oembed code) it will redirect to the https equivalent:


    ...and produce the expected response.

    I am not indicating here that it's going to fix things for those currently blocked (you will need to contact Reddit to get your server IP unblocked) nor am I indicating here that the change by Invision will stop people being blocked going forward - I am only indicating that in my case above, we have not seen any further blocks since making the change after the second unblock being done.


  2. Just as a bit of information to add to the mix here...

    A few weeks ago I assisted someone on a problem with Reddit embeds on their own site (non-Invision) which had the same problem - Reddit unblocked their IP address, but a few days later it was blocked again. Contacted Reddit again, they unblocked it but advised us to review the embed code being used. It was then that I spotted that the URL being used for the oembed endpoint was http://www.reddit.com/oembed - updated it to https://, and we've not seen any further blocks.

    The endpoint for reddit in \IPS\Text\Parser is http://www.reddit.com/oembed

    Could contain: Text, Page

  3. This reminds me of another annoying issue while you are poking around in that area - this is what someone sees if content moderation is enabled on an account after they have replied to a topic:

    Could contain: White Board, Page, Text

    If the content must be approved before the content can be edited then an edit link shouldn't be there, and I shouldn't be able to edit (which I can if I click the link)

    I would like to protect from guests the Personal Information and contact parts of user's profile

    Before diving in to that custom app idea...might be an idea to show, in a screenshot, what you are referring to for hiding.


    Because profile fields, which might be what you are referring to by "Personal information" can already be hidden from view:

    Could contain: Page, Text

    1. I first post the video Embed code using the Code Button?

    2.  What button do you guys refer to as the "Source button?" When I hover over each button in the Editor, I don't see one name, "Source."

    The one titled 'Source' - you said that

    I Did give myself permission

    ...so it had to be assumed that you had. If you didn't then you should check your group to see if you have the "Can post HTML?" setting is enabled for it.

    3. When I find this Source button, what is it that I'm editing in the video embed code so I can see the video when it's published? 

    You're adding whatever your html code is


  6. This is what you should expect to happen:


    But all that going on within the popup box...that's Twitter's issue. Personally, the fact that it displays what looks like CSS as plain text right at the start indicates that they likely haven't tested whatever the heck it is that they are now doing when sharing.
