    how to insert Youtube clips into your posts?

    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.

    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:

    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.
