YouTube Videos now embedded

Postby Ken » Thu May 24, 2012 1:32 pm

I've added a new feature, allowing you to embed YouTube videos in your posts.

Because of how it works, there are TWO buttons for YouTube videos.....YouTube is for the full URL, and shortyoutube is for the newer YouTu.be url.

You MUST use the shortyoutube button for this URL

Code: Select all

http://youtu.be/MMGiwuURpTY
Your post should look like this!!!!

Code: Select all

[shortyoutube]http://youtu.be/MMGiwuURpTY[/shortyoutube]




So...how do I do it?? When you post...there is BB Code buttons for B(Bold), i(Italics), IMG (images)....there is now a button for YouTube.

Step 1. Either

A) Swipe the link in the URL, but you want the whole thing

Code: Select all

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMGiwuURpTY
B) Click the SHARE button. But also check the LONG LINK button. The COPY the URL in the box on YouTube.


Step 2

In your post...click the YouTube button.

Step 3

PASTE your URL. The Best way at this point, is just use CTRL - V at the same to post. Or you can right click, Paste.


Your post should look like this!!!!

Code: Select all

[YouTube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMGiwuURpTY[/YouTube]

If you did it right.....you'll see this
