Embedded Tweets

Post by Transmogrified Tiger »

With as much as twitter stuff gets shared, having them embedded is really helpful. We added this at NSBB and it's worked great, it adds a [tweet] tag and you put the URL of the tweet between it to embed: http://punyweakling.com/add-a-tweet-bbc ... pbb-forum/

Can a similar addition be added for tumblr? It's a little different, because the post id isn't enough to construct a full code. However, tumblr does give an embed code that looks something like this:

Code: Select all

 <div class="tumblr-post" data-href="https://embed.tumblr.com/embed/post/RiJu6iHoqaBbY2DtrSDo_A/144283208335" data-did="d4e6f4e2fa2cbebe4b2be0495ec913c0a9111d47"><a href="http://newpagodi.tumblr.com/post/144283208335/stlcardinals-rally-cat-did-the-cat-remember">http://newpagodi.tumblr.com/post/144283208335/stlcardinals-rally-cat-did-the-cat-remember</a></div>  <script async src="https://secure.assets.tumblr.com/post.js"></script>
The result is that the script replaces the div with an iframe that shows the content of the post and looks like this:


I've done some experimenting and it seems that neither the link nor the data-did attribute are essential. The only thing that's really needed is the data-href attribute.

So could something like this be done:
BBcode usage:

Code: Select all

HTML replacement:

Code: Select all

<div class="tumblr-post" data-href="{SIMPLETEXT1}://embed.tumblr.com/embed/post/{SIMPLETEXT2}/{IDENTIFIER}"></div>  <script async src="https://secure.assets.tumblr.com/post.js"></script>
The catch is that I don't know how a user is supposed to get SIMPLETEXT2 without asking for the embed code first and then cutting out the portion they need.
