(Note: embedded YouTube videos are not possible (currently) in this version of the SOS Forum.)
If you don't wish to show the actual URL in your post, you can use the UBB [ url ] buttons. This inserts a pair of tags in your post [ url ][ url ] and you paste your target URL in so that it looks as follows:
- Code: Select all
[url=http://www.bbc.co.uk]Link to BBC site[/url]
This displays as a clickable link without sight of the URL: Link to BBC site
Yes, the latter is not as elegant as the old forum, but that's how phpBB does things I'm afraid. The benefit is that it auto-converts URLs (the old forum did this badly).
Hope it helps.
