Ticket: YouTube username not saving in Wyvern module prefs

When I add a username to the “username” field in the Wyvern module prefs and hit Save, the page refreshes and the username field is blank again. Can’t get it to save anything.

Hi Tim, what version are you running?


Tim Print

Wyvern Video 1.2.1 EE 2.5.2

I’m trying to use it as a stand alone video field.

I wasn’t 100% sure about installation. I put the whole ‘video’ folder from ‘plugins’ in ‘system > expressionengine > plugins’.

Is that correct for a standalone field? The docs talk about moving it for WYSIWYG fields.

That’s probably unrelated to the username saving issue though.


BoldMinded (Brian)

The video folder should go into the /themes/third_party/wyvern/plugins folder, and its only needed if you want to use the video dialog in the Wyvern fieldtype, otherwise it isn’t needed.


BoldMinded (Brian)

I can replicate the inability to save the username, will look into it.

Tim, open the helper.wyvern_video.php file and go to line 361, you should see this:

'settings' => serialize($data)

Change it to this:

'settings' => json_encode($data)

That should fix it.

Works perfectly. Great support. Thanks.
