Hey,

I want to disable all forms of embedding content (Youtube urls, images, tweets etc.) in the forum.

Can you tell me, what kind of URLs does wpForo by default turn into embeds? It seems to only be images, is that correct? Anything else?

Can you consider making this embedding functionality optional since it has privacy implications (the IP of the user is sent to the server that provides the image)?

Hi @florian,

Can you tell me, what kind of URLs does wpForo by default turn into embeds? It seems to only be images, is that correct? Anything else?

Only the images are embedded by default. The solution on how do disable it is provided here: 

https://wpforo.com/community/how-to-and-troubleshooting-2/how-to-stop-wpforo-from-auto-embedding-image-urls/#post-25623

As I've already mentioned we may add an option to disable it in future releases.

Thank you. I just wanted to make sure that images are the only content that is embedded by default, that's why I opened another thread.

But you answered my question so thank you!

If you ever decide to embed more content by default, please make it optional!
