Use of BBCode in Posts containing Youtube Video Links

Postby Mike Bracchi » 13 Aug 2015 03:12

Wotcha folks,

As we are now getting more members posting their music via a youtube link could I please ask that you use the BBCode to ensure the video is embedded so it can be viewed without navigating away from the boards .... this also goes for other youtube links that you share on the boards.

There are several types of youtube links that are applied to videos for sharing, the important thing to remember here is we are only interested in the 11 digit identity number contained in all types of youtube link.

........www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EFWVvDMpFM (with this type of link the ident number is always immediately after the ?v=)
........//youtu.be/o9fHKa92b-w

Easiest method of applying the code to the link is as follows ...

1. Paste the whole link into your message as you normally would.
2. Run your cursor over the 11 digit ident number to highlight it.
3. Once the number is highlighted, click on the 'youtube' BBCode tab above the message box (last tab on the right) to add the code to the ident number.
4. You will then have something like this .........Image
5. Finally, just delete anything that is outside, before and/or after, the two pieces of code you have added to the identity number just leaving something like this ....... Image

After you have finished your message just submit in the normal way.

This procedure may appear to be a bit fiddly - but after you have done it a couple of time it will become second nature when posting a youtube link .... and, it will save me a shed load of work editing your posts :wink:

Many thanks ....

Mike

Of course you can do all this 'by hand' too. Put the cursor just to the right of the '=' sign. Delete everything to the left. To the left of what is left, type [youtube] using the keypad (open square bracket; youtube; close square bracket); and [/youtube] (open square bracket; slash; youtube; close square bracket) at the end. Job Done.

(To the left of what is left? What a funny language we have!)
