New forumers are so spoiled... back when I was a new comer, we had to walk uphill in the snow for 3 miles, to and from school, just to learn how to use a smiley.

:D

Great guide!

Take this YouTube URL as an example:

_http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CR8logunPzQ

Copy ONLY what's AFTER 'watch?v=' (highlighted in red)
:)

So it will look like this - [I will use youtubewide since the video is widescreen]

[youtubewide.]CR8logunPzQ[/youtubewide]

Click 'POST REPLY' rather then filling out the Quick Reply box. Then on that page scroll below 'Preview and submit' and you should see 'Upload Attachment'
