Default Posting YouTube Videos

Bob has asked me to add the ability to embed YouTube videos directly into your posts.

Like this


When composing a post you will see a new button along with the other formatting buttons above the message editing box. This wraps the correct code around the YouTube link for you.

The Youtube link that you need is the short bit at the end of the URL after the =, as shown in red below.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KypwZsH2_M
or
http://youtu.be/9KypwZsH2_M

Copy and paste this piece into your post as below.

9KypwZsH2_M

Now highlight the text and then press the new youtube button, this will result in your entry looking like this.

[YOUTUBE]9KypwZsH2_M[/YOUTUBE]

You can also just type the [youtube][/youtube] brackets yourself and then insert the link between them.

If you got that right, this -> [YOUTUBE]9KypwZsH2_M[/YOUTUBE]

Will become this when you preview or post it.



If it does not work, the most likely reason is that you do not have the correct part of the Youtube link between the [youtube][/youtube] brackets.

PM me if you are having difficulty and I will try to help you get it working.

Have fun.
