  • Embedding Help

    I've seen some folks around the site that don't know how to use some of the embedding tools and stuff, so I figured this might help....I'm going to demonstrate through pics how some of this works

    First, make sure your advanced editor is showing by clicking the underlined A






    Let's start with links:

    Type whatever word you want to be linked and then highlight it



    click this button



    paste the link, and then click OK

    if you've linked the wrong thing, highlight the text that's linked and click



    more to come

    Pics MUST end in something like .png, .jpg. .gif, etc....even if you copy/paste from imgur or google images, it won't work unless you open in a new tab




    copy that link and then paste it here and uncheck the "retrieve" box

      as of now, gifvs don't seem to work, so just remove the V and see what happens

        It usually works when you remove the v.

      Videos are a bit more complicated an there are two buttons

      the video button and the youtube button


      or



      the video button works for more types of videos and the youtube button works for just youtube videos....the youtu.be and m.youtube items are wonky and I'll try to explain later...but first I'll show the video items

        for youtube embedding you only need the code at the end of the video (same with twitter, instagram, etc)

              and the last for tonight, twitter

              take the tweet number

              so here's the first tweet (shamelessly using a WtW tweet from JayhawkLifer )



              and then the tweet number



              and then over here

                  This reminds me, I was going to post a quick how-to for chat on the hoops board. Thanks!

                  You can also just click on the downward arrow on the right of a tweet, click copy link and put it between the tweet brackets - no need to break out the tweet number:

                    I found out by being lazy. I always look for the path of least resistance first, then tweak as needed. ;-)

                    Interesting, same on Instagram?

                    I don't think streamable works like that

                    Not sure about instagram, as I have never used it. Also never used the streamable brackets.

                  I know this doesn't have anything to do with embedding, but while we're on the subject of getting stuff to work, I still don't have commenting; This is what appears under every post for me:
