    The 'how to" thread

    This is probably not the right place to post this. But I can't find the right place.

    So I'd like ot know how to post youtube and facebook videos, so that the video shows up on the page, and not just the link.

    Also, how do you tag someone in a thread?

    I can’t help with FB videos but, I use my free subscription to YouTube to view and copy the link. If I don’t use my sub. the link has to be clicked by anyone wanting to view it. Not sure what you mean by “tag?”

    1) Under non-political forums you will find a self help and advice sub-forum.

    2) Using the film icon (present in the upper control bar when you are forming a post/reply) you can paste the link of a video. You may have to change the ".m" to ".www" in that link to have it behave correctly (that is an Apple thing).

    3) I have no idea what you are talking about.

    I don't do FB but with youtube, just c & p the link to your response box, highlight it and then click the little blue box above the response box...next to the last on the right...video box will come up...paste your video link into it and click ok and click reply button...

    To tag someone, just quote them and they'll get a notification...

    Thanks for that, and the other replies.

    As far as tagging goes, on other forums, you'd just use the @ symbol, then their name, and it would tag them. They'd get notified without having to quote them.
