[YouTube] Minor issue with profile editing

Postby TooMuchSource » Thu Dec 03, 2015 9:04 am

I can't seem to enter my YouTube page into my profile information. I'm usually met with a "The field “YouTube” has invalid characters." error. I played around with the names I could put in, and I found out numbers will trigger this error while standard letters are fine. What do I do? Is this only happening to me?
Do I really need a signature? Really?

Hmm.. That's inherent to Phpbb i think. Maybe you could try with an URL shortener ?

I don't know how that'd work. When I put in any name, for example 'Paul', I'm brought to the URL 'https://www.youtube.com/user/paul'

I don't think it's a URL problem, since the name is just added to a pre-defined URL. 'https://www.youtube.com/user/*name*' More like an entry problem. I just can't enter numbers in without an error popping up.

But, like I said, this is totally not important at all. Very minor. Just me being weird. ;)

Hey 2sauce,

You have to add just the identifier at the end of the URL and not the entire URL.
However, the YouTube profile field is currently broken in phpBB3 and whilst I could fix it manually, I'd rather wait for an official bugfix from the phpBB3 team.
