To add a YouTube movie to your posts it's now a bit different. We've had to implement this because the other method left the site open to people posting links to dodgy sites.

So to post YouTube movies you now do this...

1) Start a new post/thread.

2) Click the
button (it's where the image posting buttons are in the 'post new thread' interface)

3) Enter the name of your YouTube movie.

4) In the middle of the [yt] tags, enter the last bit of the YouTube url (the little bit with the letters, so if the URL is

, then you just enter the xhuAiWLsiiM bit)
The YouTube video should now appear in your posts.

Cheers, Mike. Think I've got a few 'guide' video links to alter now, haven't I?! ;) :p

Cool new forum look, btw. I do admit to finding the main forum board text a little small for me to read, though. Thank you 'Ctrl' and '+'! :D And I'm probably just being dense o_O but I can't find anything on the main pages that, like previously, says how many PMs you've got or if there are any new ones in your inbox. I can only see what PMs I've got once I go into the PM section of my 'Profile'. Is that how PMs are now meant to show?

Not too sure about pm's Joanna, I'll see what I can do. They should appear in the 'Member Login' box on the left, but they aren't for some reason. At some point this will hopefully be fixed.

Yeah, just had a look there and can't see anything on PMs. Thanks, anyway, Mike!

There is actually quite a few problems with it in Internet Explorer which I've just discovered. I'll try and fix them but my advice is to use Firefox.

I didn't actually mean you Joanna, I just meant people in general ;)

PM's notification should be seen on the left now, I think I've fixed it. At least in IE.

The Explorer problems are aesthetic by the way. The header doesn't stretch the full way across the screen. I'll fix it soon.

Yes, I thought it was a bit odd you were advising me to use Firefox. ;) :confused:
