    I hate to sound like a Dummy on here, but I am a newbie and still can't figure out how to embed a YouTube video on here. Can someone please explain it to me, in layman's terms, how to do it. Thanks in advance!

    Go to the Full Editor (Click on Quick Reply, then Full Editor).
    You will then see a youtube button - click it. Copy your Youtube link into the gap between the 2 sets of tags and delete the "S" from the HTTPS at the beginning, if you were logged in when you copied the link.

    Simples :)

    Yes. Youtube links from your iPad youtube app won't work though. Open youtube in a browser instead and take the link from there.

    Thanks, I think I figured it out (remove the S for sure).
