I'd like to be able to embed vimeo vids in my pages. There are two modules that say they do this, the vimeoembbed and vimeoservice modules.

I have installed them both. awesome. But what do i do next? The documentation says you can use short codes. but what is the format for the codes?

Ideally I'd like to use the vimeoembebd module, because thats all i really need.

This is what i have tried: [vimeo clip_id="2805235"] [vimeo id="2805235"] [vimeo id=2805235]

Nobody used the vimeo modules?

Ok, i looked at vimeoembed on a fresh install. It gives me a new tab - vimeos on the main horizontal nav,

adding the config to mysite

// -- MUST HAVE--
DataObject::add_extension('SiteTree', 'VimeoDOD');
// it says VideoPage in the readme, but that won't work unless you create the page type
VimeoDataObject::add_video(2805235, "Test Video");

I can now go to a page and choose a vimeo in a new tab content->vimeo using a drop down

I poked about in the source and then did this in my template:

<% include VimeoObject %>


So no short code but its working. groovy. Obvious once you know.

Further investigation into the vimeo service module

There isn't a button i don't think. The short codes only work on the gallery page.

adding this into site confg gets short codes working elsewhere

ShortcodeParser::get('default')->register('vimeo', array('Page', 'VimeoShortcodeHandler'));

format is [vimeo id=2805235]

just posting this incase anybody else isn't quite sure what to expect from the module. Obvious once you know.

More self rescue

I reworked the vimeo service module down to bare basics and made a simple shortcode module that has a button. so basicly i used the youtube module and this one and stripped a bit of code. works for me.

thanks for this module!

Just two issues:

1. In the readme you write: call the directory "vimeo". It needs to be "ssvimeo", like in the list below in the readme.

2. In the editor_plugin.js is a pathing issue. In Tinymce the image "V" is not shown. You need to change Line 17.

image : 'vimeo/images/v.png',


image : 'ssvimeo/images/v.png',

But then, it works like charm! Nice and helpful module :)
