Attaching a video to your post

Post by Rescue Remedies » Sat May 31, 2014 9:16 pm

1 - You must first upload your video to a video hosting site such as YouTube, Vimeo, Photobucket etc
2 - Copy the url link for the video from the hosting site, and paste it into your post
3 - Highlight the url link in your post, and select the 'URL' button above the post

To hide the url wording and create a text link to the video, you will then need to follow this template, by inserting square brackets, /url and = in the correct places

Original link
(url)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RlwEvgf ... u.be(/url) **Replace ()s with []s**

New link
(url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RlwEvgf ... utu.be/url)Video: Fifi by the river(/url) **Replace ()s with []s**
