I had mentioned previously that we can now prettily embed YouTube videos here at our new home, as I have recently added the [youtube] tag. Here is an easy tutorial on how to embed a video, using the button above the composition box (where you type your messages).

First, copy the URL to the video and paste it into the composition box:

(In this example, I the video was linked from the channel page, and has ‘&feature=channel_page’ after the video ID.)


You want to highlight and delete the ampersand (‘&’) and anything after it:

(We only want to have the URL to the video ID.)


And then hit the Delete or Backspace key so that this remains:

(Depending on where on YouTube you copy the URL from, you might actually be starting after the step above, because your video URL may not have the ‘&...’ text.)


Next we want to highlight the entire URL:

And unlike how things were at ProBoards—there’s no advertisements here (and we have the explanation line below it, because I do not think anyone was aware that you could double-click the video). ;)

As always, use the contact links below my post or on my profile if you have any questions, or I an assist you in any way.
