YouTube BBCode (Adding YouTube Videos to your posts)

Post by Muad'Dib » July 5th, 2009, 1:29 pm

Here is a quick addition to this forum that im just now finally getting a change to document for you.

When creating a new post, you should see a new "BBCode" called "YouTube", right next to "Font color". Please see the following screenshot:

Now let me explain how to use it...

First of all when you press the icon for "YouTube" it inserts the following into your posting area:

Code: Select all

[YouTube][/YouTube]
Within the bracketed text, this is where you insert the ID of the YouTube video you want to post.

For example, lets say you would like to link to the following YouTube video in your post:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOwdR4fQTlQ

At the end of the url is the id of the actual video. So using this one as an example again, its everything after the "v=" so: "gOwdR4fQTlQ" is the id of the video.

Now that you have the id of the video, you just need to insert it between the brackets of the YouTube bbcode, and thats how you add the YouTube video to your post.

Here is what it will look like when making the post:

Code: Select all

[YouTube]gOwdR4fQTlQ[/YouTube]
And here is what it looks like when you submit the post:



I hope that helps and you find this mod usefull.
If it feels right, then STROKE it!
You're lucky that hundred shot of CAPS LOCK didn't blow the welds on the forum!!
