Images just need img tags around the url...
[img]http://imageshack.com/image.jpg[/img]

You can add a size as an option in the first tag to resize images...so..
[img size=500]http://imageshack.com/image.jpg[/img]

You can add the img tags manually as above, or, If you look at the toolbar above the reply box when making a post, 6th from the rh end, the green square, is the button that will add the img tags for you automatically, a provision to enter the image url and optional size appears when its clicked, paste the url in, press insert and it will put it in the reply box.

Youtube videos should automatically embed just by pasting the url in. If they dont, use the 3rd icon from the rh end to add video tags, or add the tags manually as follows...
[video]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIoftXmHRSw[/video]

Which will embed it

If you want to link to youtube rather than embed, then it needs url tags around the url rather than video tags.. so
[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIoftXmHRSw[/url]

will result in..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIoftXmHRSw

Again theres a button in the toolbar to add links, 5th from the rh end, the round green thing next to the ebay tool.

Hope that helps. :up: :cool:

I don't think you can embed Ytubes vids using the secure url so you need to remove the 's'.
This wont embed
[video]https://youtube,com/^[/video]

This will work

Your video isn't embedded using the video tags.


Bellow is the same video wrapped in video tags and I'm pretty sure it wont display.

above wrapped in video tags and the 's' removed.
