Title: you tube links
Post by: Rob47 on September 03, 2019, 09:59:42 PM

I have two small videos on you tube I wish to post but although various links appear on the tube when I paste they do not appear as hyperlinks.
Any advice please?

Long standing discussion.  Check out the thread on forum improvements or summit (also a bit buried).


...The links should show anyhow*, just not able to show the actual video window like on other forums.

*"Share" on youtube "up and right arrow" or elsewhere and paste the link into the thread.  Don't try and modify afterwards because the abiity to show videos is disabled here and will drive you mad trying to work out how not following usual forum / SMF protocal!

Bob,

Also but if you know where it is on youtube, and you're not logged in you can usually always go back and copy the long address at the top and paste it into a thread "URL" etc.  Sometimes it converts into something shorter, sometimes not, but it's usually a sure fire way to get back to the same page.
