Drum

Start by going into Youtube and finding the clip that want to link to. When you have the clip on screen, highlight the entire contents of the address bar at the top. Then press control & 'c' to copy it. Then come back to the place in the forum where you want to post the clip. At the top of the box into which you type your comments etc there are a series of buttons (B, i,u, Quote, Code etc. etc), click on the one marked 'URL'. When you do this, '[url][/url]' will appear with the cursor flashing in the centre of it. Now press control & 'v' to paste the link. When you preview this, the link should appear in blue. Alternatively, you can use the 'youtube' button in the same way as the URL button.

Good luck.


Steve.

Thanks to all. Works now. Next question is how do you show you tube page in a post rather than the link to youtube page

Click on share (on the you tube video you have wish to embed)
Click on more options
Tick Long Link
Press Ctrl and C (this copies the link)
Go to the post on the Forum and press Ctrl and V (this pastes the link)
Now highlight the link you just pasted on to your post and click on the youtube icon on the thread post and it will add [youtube][/youtube] to your link. This now works like below (which I fixed on your post about the KSPB world champions) 8)
