    Idiots guide to Posting Media on a Forum and other How to's

    Alright, I've been meaning to post this for a while and keep forgetting.
    A lot of people aren't as web savvy as some of us. I get that. Well still if you don't know how to post a Video or Link
    I'm gonna try to help you.


    First off. If you are on your phone in Mobile mode (blue skin to the forum) CHANGE IT NOW. It's worthless and limits so much you can do.
    Scroll to the very bottom of the page. find the FULL SITE link and click it. You are welcome.

    Next.... I have a photo on my computer or phone I took. I want to share it with all of you....
    Go to https://postimg.cc/
    Upload your pic. You don't need to create an account. Just upload it.
    Click the blue share button for the drop down menu of options. Click direct link
    Copy the link that includes the .jpg or other file type at the end https://s13.postimg.org/bwcp3w9uv/si...mushrooms2.jpg
    In your message click the picture frame (to the right of the red X but before the movie clip)
    a menu will pop open. Make sure you select "From URL" and then uncheck the box below it about retrieve remote file
    Click Ok
    Tada. Dinner is served



    Next how to insert a YOUTUBE video
    Go to your video on youtube. If on your phone and you see something looking like this (usually from youtube in a mobile browser)
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=...&v=sf6LD2B_kDQ
    NOTICE THE M.youtube = mobile. This WILL NOT WORK on the forum
    Your best bet is manually edit the URL. ALL YOU HAVE to do is remove the M. Leaving youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=sf6LD2B_kDQ
    Your URL will not embed.
    IF you see something like https://youtu.be/sf6LD2B_kDQ
    THIS WILL NOT WORK. This is a shortcut. Open this up in any browser and you will get the full url OR the Mobile url which I just showed you how to fix.

    NOW that you have the working URL. We want to Embed the video, so it plays within the thread and people dont have to click to go to youtube to see what you posted.
    As mentioned above. Click the movie icon next to the picture icon on the menu bar.


    What else would you like to do.
    How about changing a title after you post it because you misspell something.
    Click Edit Post. Go advanced. Correct your title.

    If anyone has any other questions. I'm always a PM away...

    How about embedding a Tweet? Can you do that you or do you need to just capture it as an image then upload it?

    Good question Brun... If on a desktop as I usually am I just copy and paste. that way I get the tweet, time, and links or what not.

    If on a phone I would screenshot , and post as a pic just like I did for the other pics.

    Or the easiest way is just link to the tweet. On desktop. Click on the individual tweet and copy the url
    https://twitter.com/d1baseball/statu...68046197432320

    If on mobile. Click the down area next to the twitter name (right side of screen) Click copy link to tweet.

    If you want to capture it because you think it will be deleted. ALWAYS screencap it.
