I'm not able to add links to sites or Youtube videos when commenting in forum topics. What am I doing wrong?

To know what you are doing wrong we would have to know what you are doing?

There is a link icon in the header of the reply box that allows you to paste or type an URL.

 

http://www.flytyingf...topic=87392&hl=

 

Copy the address of what you want to link and paste it then click OK as I did^^^^ above for a test.

Can also copy and paste directly in the text as http://www.flytyingf...topic=87392&hl=

 

I'm barely computer literate, so am only guessing that it is a setting on your device. Are you on a phone or computer?

 

or it may be the http vs https protocol setting in the link dialog box does not match the URL ?

"Are you really that lazy?" - really?  I have shared vids on this forum before.  Im telling you, all your suggestions I know about and have tried - they are not copying and pasting.  Using the link icon at the top of the message box isn't highlighting the OK button.

 

But thanks for your help.

 

 

 

Maybe an administrator could help with getting videos shared to the forum?

First, Jay, I'm pretty sure flytire's signature isn't meant for you.

 

Second, send a PM to steeldrifter.  He's the only one who can go completely into your account to see if you have a mis-keyed preference or permission.

 

If you open your own account page, you might see something that's causing your problem.

 

Personally, I don't use the link button.  I pushed it to see if it worked, and it does for me.  So, there's no site-wide reason you shouldn't be able to post.  But I just copy and paste directly onto this reply box.

So here’s how you post a video.

 

If you just copy and paste the link you get the URL.

 

https://www.youtube....h?v=TKtmlVMgWPU

 

But if you remove the “s” from the “https” you get the video.
