  • Stupid Question….

    Can someone teach me how to add youtube videos to a thread?

    I know I should know this but since the site was redesigned, nothing seems to be working for me except posting dumb questions like this…. thanks.

    Depends what you're trying to do it from. From my PC there's an "advanced" reply tap that takes you to some choice of little boxes and one of them is for adding video. From my iPad, there is no way that I am aware of except to manually surround the YouTube link with video] [/video] tags.

      If I open up the Advanced Editor Window and select the "Insert Video" option, it never works. Not sure what I`m doing wrong.

        It works for me except that it always wants to put the video at the beginning of my post regardless of where I've set the cursor.

        But if it's any consolation, I can't ever use the "image" option. It completely locks up the page anytime I try to use it. I have to enter any pictures manually.

          Ernest - the text to put into the URL box you get when you hit "insert video" should be from the "Share" selection for the youtube you're trying to insert. Just copy and paste - works every time for me...

            Hey, I have pointed out that "camera" icon to the left top of the post field isn't functioning as it should. You must open the A icon (advanced editor- and middle button on the right side) and use the image icon within there. Hope that helps. The fix on the list is to make both of those buttons function the same. D

              The image icon is the one I'm talking about. It opens up the dialog box and then just freezes. I have to refresh the page to close anything. Been doing that since the switchover.

                The <insert video>button right next to the image button always works. Paste the complete link from the video page and click ok or whatever the affirmative is.

                        Too much Autotune. Obviously Ms. Underwood can't sing and her producer is trying to trick us into thinking she can....
