One other tip:

This forum has some built in software that parses links for certain sites. What the heck does that mean? Well it means, for instance, if you post a link to a YouTube video, it will automatically embed the video here without any special coding needed.

Just copy the link from YouTube and paste it in your message. Once the message is posted, you should see the video right within your message so there's no trip to the website necessary.

This automatic parsing works similarly for other sites, but YouTube is the biggest one that comes to mind.

If you DON'T want it to automatically parse, be sure to click the GO ADVANCED button and deselect the "Automatically parse links in text" checkbox. This is the same place where you can upload file attachments or disable smilies...

If you have any questions, feel free to post them or message me.

Go Blue!
