    Quick head's up, I know Soundcloud links are not working suddenly. Looking into the issue.

    Update: Looks like Soundcloud's completely changed their embed system, so now I've got to make some weird workaround to make it work. No ETA on fix.

    Update 2: Uh... this one's going to be a mess. Going to basically have to implement an oEmbed. YAY!

    Update 3: Good news: Written some PHP code that handles the oEmbed. Bad news: Having trouble getting it hooked into XF's callbacks. Almost there...

    Update 4: SoundCloud is fixed. You're welcome.

    Quick PSA regarding the Soundcloud update, it seems a few folks have had some issues with embedding. The easy solution is to just manually insert your link:

    Code:
    [MEDIA=soundcloud]YourURLHere[/MEDIA]
    Should display like the following:

    as an aside, is it possible to make the soundcloud not default to full volume? It sucks listening to music people upload when they are just always too loud...

    Sadly, their oEmbed API doesn't allow defaulting the volume. There's really not a lot of control that they provide, honestly.

    Yep. The API is a total pain in the dick to deal with, and you can find it on the developer section of Soundcloud.

    It's just as frustrating as it looks.

    Would it be possible to enable embeds of audio files as an alternative?

    At this point in time, no. We don't have the drive space or setup to really support that. To be honest, the Soundcloud setup is already a colossal hack, and there's no telling how many more will be needed to make it to XF2 at this point.

    Is it just me, or did many old topics disappear from the face of Earth? Usually I'd look for a filter which might be hiding something by default, but I can't seem to find any. Look at here, for example. It should be way more crowded than this. Does Xenforo come with some pruning feature enabled by default?

    @nineko I archived them in preparation for the upgrade. Some things will stay hidden (example "help" threads that are compete trash), whilst others will be public and read only.

    I see, thanks. I was looking for something and I couldn't find it, so I thought to bring this up.
