Hi Woodscooter,

Can you tell me how to go about inserting a Youtube clip into my posts? Its the entire box which I want to be visible in the post, and not just a link to click onto. Thanks.

Aasha ;D

Above the text box, you should see an icon that looks like a short strip of film, like 2 frames. Just to the left of the thought bubble that's sitting there separately. Click it and paste the youtube url in the pop-up box:

Sorry FBM, but I could only manage to insert the url link and not the full video clip into my post... :confused:

Are you sure you copied the full url? Just a minute...

OK, Aasha, I checked on what you had done and fixed it for you. When you copy and paste the url, be sure to include the "http://" part. ;D
