Changes to YouTube & Flickr Video posting
« on: August 12, 2008, 09:55:54 »
All, I've changed the tags to be more clear on what to put inbetween them.

They are now YouTubeID and FlickrVideoID

I've included & modified my original announcement below:



You can now embed YouTube & Flickr videos in your posts on the forum.

YouTube:

Click the YouTube icon under "Change Color" and type in the ID of the video:

In this case, the ID is the part after the =

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n84BOIvOtk0

You would end up with:

Code: [Select]
[YouTubeID]n84BOIvOtk0[/YouTubeID]
[YouTubeID]n84BOIvOtk0[/YouTubeID]



Flickr:

Click the Flickr icon under "Change Color" and type in the ID of the video:

In this case, the ID is 2537463738

You would end up with :

Code: [Select]
[FlickrVideoID]2537463738[/FlickrVideoID]
[FlickrVideoID]2537463738[/FlickrVideoID]

Incidentally, the tag names are not case sensitive.  For those that prefer the keyboard to the mouse.

It's a drop down box to change the text color when you are posting.

I know it's on video. But what about photos?  I can't seem to post my flickr pics up anymore.  Just the link to it.

Use the [ img ] [ /img ] tag (without the spaces).

The 2nd button on the 2nd row inserts this for you, then you can paste your photo's link in the middle.

If you're using a PC, right-click on the picture on your flickr page and click Properties.  This will give you the URL to the actual photo file.  Copy that and paste in between the
Code: [Select]
[img][/img] tags.  If you paste the URL from the address bar while viewing your Flickr photo, you'll get the X.
