The panel is just above the entry box where you type your post. Now furthest button to the right.

Now I'm even more confused after trying to find what your talking about :irked: !!

Nope I don't see anything you described :banghead: . Maybe it's because this forum is not one of my sharing sites for YouTube?

You're probably using the silver profile instead of the other one... orange something or other... this is what is looks like

Now I'm having issues sharing pics from The Wall concert because they are from an iPhone and they are PNG and not IMG, can I change that?

PNG files will work fine, see below:

Or do you mean that you are trying to upload directly to this website?

Which also seems to work, I don't have an iPhone to experiment with but it seems an odd format for a mobile device, JPEG is the norm for digital photos!

Well it looked like an iPhone but if not it was similiar. Sometimes when I would have issues sharing a pic here I would have to load it to Photobucket and then just copy/paste the IMG link. When I try to highlight the IMG one, the one pic I finally got to Photobucket, I will left click to highlight and just get a 'copied' reading?? F'ing computers :hehe: .

Tex, you know how to insert and image and a URL, right?

Above the text box you click on either Img for an image or URL to insert a link to a web page.
Well also on that line of buttons, and next to Font Colour is the Youtube button.

You click on that, and then you should see [ Youtube][/ Youtube] in the text field. Then you just put your 3EXRPxC-5bE in between the brackets.

It should now look like this inside the text box.
[ Youtube]3EXRPxC-5bE[/ Youtube]

Here's a step by step (7 simple steps):

1) Go to Youtube

2) Load the video you want to show on this forum

3) See this address as an example (dont go to it... :D ): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48rz8udZBmQ

4) Just select the BOLDED part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48rz8udZBmQ

5) Paste it in your post as below:

48rz8udZBmQ

6) Highlight it with your mouse (click and drag from 4 right up till Q)

7) Click on the YouTube button you see above your post column


YES, I am jobless right now...the power just went out in my office and I'm on my trusty laptop. :D

BTW, I TOLD you to not go to that address! :blush:
