Posting videos and embedding web pages in posts

Unread post by FieldMarshall Ober » Mon Jun 27, 2011 8:12 pm

The new platform gives us the option of using buttons in the post frame to add a working video or a working web page. Note - Each button has instructions that will appear when hovering over the buttons to help you select the correct link to copy and paste.

Video can be added by copying the url from the top of the video's page and pasting it into your post. Once its in, highlight it with your mouse and click the Video button above (Picture of a camera). You must use the http:// portion of the url.

For YouTube this is what you would copy over: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGmOrsmljY8

Working web pages can be embedded into posts also using the Web button on the bottom row next to the Email button. Just copy the url from the top of your webpage and paste it into your post, highlight it and click the Web button and it should embed when posted. If it is too short change the second number in the code from a 100 to a 600. Change this text in your code web 100%,100 to this text web 100%,600 to make taller. You must use the http:// portion of the url in your code.

You know, I've been meaning to ask how people embed those youtube videos in their posts...

I might as well ask here as well, how does one quote somebody starting off with the "soandso wrote:" and then the quote?

I know I should know, but I'm relatively new to the forum type stuff (ok, it's almost been a year :shock: ) but I still haven't figured it out...

No Problem. Up in the post frame there is a quote button, (two buttons to the left of the 'H' Button, in between them is the spoiler button). Just type in your quote and highlight it with your mouse and click the Quote button and when you post or preview it should be in a quote box. The spoiler button (blank page button) works the same way.

Still trying to figure out how to make tables using the table button. :sickie:
