    Default Testing soundcloud tag - now working

    Never used the soundcloud BBCode tag before; from rerading article at soundcloud, I should be able to simply paste full url using the BBCode tags to embed. This is a test ...

    It doesn't work anymore. :-( I think SoundCloud must have changed their code and/or policies.

    SoundCloud has frustrated us and other forum administrators over the years. What we've noted is some addresses work, some don't. For example, this works below. Can tell you your first code insertion is correct, the second one incorrect. All you have to do (in theory) is insert the web URL between the BB Soundcloud tags. Biggest problem we note: some addresses work, others not, but why... that's the mystery.

    Mark, this what you had in mind? This is the address in your opening post. Found some new instructions and this code below is a temporary test, and I'll need to write new instructions and/or check that the new coding won't break everything that works which is pretty much assured. Part of the reason Soundcloud is such a mess for sharing in Forums using BB Code (most of them).

    EDIT: this code/example has been deprecated.

    Scott, neither of your soundcloud inclusions work for me. When I mouse over the Soundcloud box, the pointer stays the same (does not change shape to indicate a link). And clicking does nothing. I am using Firefox, if it matters.

    Assuming it's because you don't have Flash installed. I'm assuming it requires that. If you can't see the big MP3 player at the top of this page then that's the issue.

    Aha... Believe we've successfully back-hacked this to get it to work. Note Mark's opening coding was not originally working but with the change, now is. Wow, what an... uh, amazing version of this song we've chosen for a test.

    So the coding for this simply uses the SoundCloud web address (commonly called a URL) between the soundcloud BB Code tags as follows:
