Forum Notes

Thought I'd start a new topic to explain how we can use certain elements of our forum:-

You now have the ability to include youtube videos in your posts directly and not just as a url link.

To use this functionality identify the Youtube video you wish to include the link will usually be of the format:-

Code: Select all
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTrrQ9TDMY4


Simply take the unique video code after "v=" so in the example above it would be "fTrrQ9TDMY4" and then use the youtube tags:-

Code: Select all
[youtube]fTrrQ9TDMY4[/youtube]


You will then have the video embedded into your post.

Regards.

Here's a couple of basic tips for the gang:

To Quote somebody I'm sure we all know to use the 'quote' tags [ quote ] useless advice [ /quote ], although without the spaces. To have a name attached to the quote use:

[ quote="Bopomofo" ] useless advice [ /quote ]

which gives:

Bopomofo wrote:useless advice


Don't forget the "" marks around the name. Similarly, for URLs you can use:

[ url=http://bcttt.com ]The Best Tri Club in the Known Universe[ /url ]

which gives:

The Best Tri Club in the Known Universe

If you really want to dig further there's more description of codes here

I've taken the decision to disable links in signatures temporarily whilst I get my head around the spambots... very clever they really should just concentrate their talent on something else instead fo spam I'm sure they've got good IT brains... :ninja:
