The answer to your first question can be found in this post (Steps 1 - 11 for Photobucket). Subject: Posting Photographs... How-To

That is a little bit tougher.

I personally use the "YouTubeShort" button at the top of the post window.

Here is an example:



Your shortened YouTube link will look like this:

Code: Select all
[YouTubeShort]http://youtu.be/NBXvOR1giZ4[/YouTubeShort]


If you look at the shortened link on the YouTube website, it will look like this:

Code: Select all
https://youtu.be/NBXvOR1giZ4


Our forum software has issues with the https so in order to embed the video in a post you need to delete the "s".
