Vimeo posts and post length

Can the admins correct this ..

When posting Vimeo videos on HWZ, get the post length limit message .. which doesn't happen when using YouTube links

Eg, wanted to post this [vim eo]217407298[/vim eo] but will get the 10char limit message :|

Can alter the post length check logic to ignore length check if detect vimeo tag? Right now think it strips the bbcode tag and finds the video ID length is not long enough

Tks

Will it work if you add a few words together with the url?

AFAIK, there is no embedded vimeo feature.

Aiyya that I know .. which is how I post now

What i meant is inconsistent behavior .. For both Youtube and Vimeo, the video IDs are both less than 10char, but when the length checker checks for vimeo, it excludes the bbcode [vimeo ]foo[/vimeo ] and only checks the length of foo. In YouTube case, it adds the [youtube ]foo[/youtube ] tags ..
