hey paul,

i noticed when i made a post about pedal power that i couldn't embed a youtube vid in the post.

i post on some other fora and there you can copy paste a youtube video into your post and surround it with [youtube]blahblahblah[/youtube] (or press the youtube button. Like you would do for an image: [image]blahblahblah[/image] or link: blahblah....

didnt you activate this function intentionally or just didn't get to it/think of it/thought it worth the effort?
(i know maintaining a forum takes a lot of work)

because i think that instead of only linking to a video, also being able to put it in your post would be nice.

i am assuring it is possible with the type of forum your using, since you also have the youtube vid featured on top, but i am more familiar with the phpbb format.

Yeah, I've tried that too.  Oh well. 

I do know that the new forum software supports embedding youtube stuff.

And I think our wiki supports it too!
That's a very big dog. I think I want to go home now and hug this tiny ad:
