Pinned topic [ACTION NEEDED] IBM Electronic Support Community Blog is Corrupted.

‏2012-07-31T17:22:14Z |
My blog - https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/blogs/IBMElectronicS upport/ is not happy right now.

I just published a blog article - https://www.ibm.com/developerwor ks/mydeveloperworks/blogs/IBMElectronicSupport/entry/totd_sw_prod_comp_reports1?lang=en - and lost all navigation on the first page plus the previous 9 posts.

The second page looks OK - https://www.ibm.com/de veloperworks/mydeveloperworks/blogs/IBMElectronicSupport/?sortby=0&page=1&maxresults=10&lang=en

Any ideas? I can't even edit my latest post to fix this issue or delete the latest post.

Thank you,

    Hello Patrick,

    I have repaired the blog posting, which fixed all the related problems with the blog. This is actually a common problem; developerWorks is using an older version of Lotus Connections, which requires the old embedding code from youtube. (In youtube, after you click "embed", check the last checkbox in the options list -- "Use old embed code").

    This is what I put in your blog post to reference the video; if you need the dimensions changed, you edit the source directly or let me know and I will do it.

    <object width="420" height="315"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/ULWPfBxne5s?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/ULWPfBxne5s?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>

    Marking this as fix - the blog's code issue with YouTube has been manually repaired and I now know what to do to prevent this from happening again.
