youtube links

Post by winston_the_cat » Thu Sep 11, 2008 12:11 am

Hello

How do I use the youtube button correctly - so that the youtube clip frame actually appears and is playable in the post itself, instead of just creating a hyperlink? So far, i inserted the url between the youtube open/close commands. Didn't work,

thanks

I think it's coz you were putting [youtube] link [youtube], like that. You need to close the space between the link and the [youtube] jobby at both ends.

I think. :-?

Thanks all, I've figured it out now. I was taking the link from the wrong part of the youtube page...
