Hi Folks!

I have added a modification, so that you can show a YouTube video in your post without leaving the forum.

In the post editor, you will see a "youtube" button above the message window, underneath the "Font size:" setting. Simply enter the URL (address) of the video, for example

Highlight the URL by drag-selecting and press the youtube button. This will place the YouTube tag at the beginning and end of the address:


Note that you will have to edit any existing posts if you wish the video to appear.

This will display the video in your message when previewed or submitted:

Hello Dave,

This facility is not working. I have used the URL button instead to display the address as a hyperlink.

Hi Rob.

Did you highlight the YouTube video link then click on the "youtube" button, as it seems to have embedded the video on this post correctly.

What your link should show is: "[youtube] reference...[/youtube]"
