Text box only

Hello all,

I tried to post a video in the "show your work" forum after reading the how to's. All I get is a text box and pasting a YT URL into it reveals {url] link [/url} the { & } so it doesn't show up as a link.

Under the text box I see;

Some forums have a post 10 before you can do certain things does that apply here. I did try the FAQ's but couldn't find anything.

Cheers

Re: Text box only

J.M., the system should automatically parse a YT URL and embed a player.

The shorter YT "share" links generally work better, but the full YT URL should do the job too.

Make sure it's just the link with no embedding code or anything else.

Can't show you here as this is the Announcements board where video embedding is turned off intentionally.

Please try it again and contact me by email (chris at dvinfo dot net) if it's still not sorted out.
