How To..... Post video's on the forums

Unread post by barryels » Fri Jan 22, 2016 1:14 pm

With the upgrading of the Forums during 2015 it became apparent that the old way of posting a video on the forums became redundant.

The following is an example of how to post a video since the "video" button was replaced by " youtube".

1. Select the "youtube" button at the top of your reply post;
2. You will see the following in your post: [youtube][/youtube]:
3. Open the video you want to post and select "Share" in youtube;
4. This will highlight the youtube Link address;
5. Copy the link from youtube and past it between the brackets of point no. 2 e.g. : [youtube]https://youtu.be/dcdz6qsE2jQ[/youtube];
6. The next step is to delete the existing link address from "https" until the character before the actual video code which starts with "d" above.
7. The link address will now look like this: dcdz6qsE2jQ; and
8. If you Preview your post the video will show like this:

Always be humble and understanding
