Author Topic: Posting external images, links and videos  (Read 625 times)

External Images - These are the ones that you do not attach to post.
Code: [Select]
[img]place the exact link pointing to the image right here[/img] Example:
Code: [Select]

Posting Links - Click on some link and it takes you to some page or whatnot. If you want to open in a new window, right click the link and then select open in new tab.
Code: [Select]
[url=no quotes link goes here]Put your text here that will lead to your link[/url]Example:
Code: [Select]
[url=]Put your text here that will lead to your link.[/url]
Posting Videos - It will not do every site out there but it sure does a lot!
 Just get the link that you see in your browser address bar and paste that directly into the post without any added code and the video automatically will be the video once you post it. No need for code.

Hint: On youtube it will be everything in the link BEFORE the & symbol if it is not working out correctly for you. Hint: Play with the link style and you will know what I mean. Try even one for 'no cookies' or 'do not show other videos at the end'. If you find the correct link to post all this extra stuff do share! (I haven't spent tons of time trying to do this)

It will do:
College Humor
Google Video
Local streaming of popular media formats wmv,avi,flv,mov,mp4,ra,ram,rm
And many 100+ more!

The "Select" you see in the examples allows you to click on that word and it will highlight as a select all and you can then right click the highlighted areas to choose 'copy' of the example for you.
