Hey kids -

By popular demand you can now embed video in your forum posts:

There are three new tags you can use:

Code: Select all




The last is for google video.

Have fun!

Someone was asking how to do this:

For this youtube video, what I did was:

what you need to do is grab the part of the youtube url after ?v= and put it in the format below in brackets

Code: Select all


[youtube=425, 350, partAfter?v=]Title[/youtube]
[youtube=425, 350, pFbjE7NFmUI]Patty Griffin's Rain[/youtube]

Like so. You also need to remove all spaces between 425, 350, pFbjE7NFmUI to look like: 425,350,pFbjE7NFmUI[/code]
