Kitkat, several times I've wanted to put up a YouTube link here in LAL and had to put it on KK instead because I can't get it to work on LAL.


Please can you explain how to do it on this forum since it's obviously not the same method on both.

Thank you.

Hi Stardust,

(I have moved this post to the Info section, as it may be of help to others with the same query.)


Here is a randomly chosen YouTube video link: 
Code:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XhautBu7cl
 
On Krazy Kats forum (Forumotion-hosted site), you would simply insert the whole link into the YouTube tag in your posting header and it's all done for you.
Just slightly different here on LAL (FreeForums-hosted):

Same link - BUT instead of inserting the whole link into the YouTube tab - you actually only use whatever comes after the = .
So for this link:
Code:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XhautBu7cI
   you delete everything that comes before the equals sign (=) and you are left with 2XhautBu7cI.  Highlight this and then click on the YouTube tab (which places the YT code either side of your link)

 Voilà!

Click the  'Preview' tab before clicking 'send', to make sure it has come out as it should.

This is what you should get in your post:

Thank you, Candlelight, KK. I wish I'd asked you earlier.

I'm not over keen on your choice of link/photo you put up as an example though.

It's unfortunate that that's the one that shows on the cover, but it's actually quite an interesting vid to watch all the way through.
