how to post things like videos or pictures into a forum thread - Thursday, May 27, 2010 10:11 PM ( #1 )
I visit this site on a daily basis and I love going through the forums. Yet at times I find my communication skills lacking considering I do not know how to post things like videos or pictures into a forum thread. I realize I'm about to get at least a few posts mocking my internet savvy but i'm hoping for that one post to get me on my way to being a worthy and know-how poster on forums. Any help would be greatly appreciated and this thread could be used for future purposes to help other new people who are as horrible as me.

Thanks for any help given.

don't feel like a "pathetic internet user" because of these things, these are common things people don't know actually.

So I guess what you're wanting to know is how to embed videos and put pics in your posts? That's simple enough. Just need to use html tags.

For pics: [img][/img]
Just poste the link of the picture between those two tags.

For youtube vids (i'm not entirely sure on how to do any other than youtube):
[tube][/tube]
And just post the url for the video between the tags.


Oops. Look like somebody beat me to it as I was typing lol

    If your having trouble it may be the browser you are using. 
    Try using another.

    The Chrome Browser seams to work the best.


    As far as images and videos it's [img] http site ur l[/img]


    Make sure there isn't any http(s)

    [img] tag does not work for me, perhaps it is my browser
