BB Code
BB code is a set of tags based on the HTML language that you may already be familiar with. They allow you to add formatting to your messages in the same way as HTML does, but have a simpler syntax and will never break the layout of the pages you are viewing. The ability to use BB code is set on a forum-by-forum basis by the administrator, so you should check the forum rules when you post a new message.

Below is a list of the BB code tags you can use to format your messages.

I set out to find a way to create a W3C-compliant YouTube BB code tag, and this is what you see here. Regular/HQ Title: YouTube BB Code Tag Name: youtube Replacement: HTML Code: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v={param} Example: [youtube]zlfKdbWwruY[/youtube] Description: Embed a YouTube video. You only put the video ID in between the BB code tags (NOT the full URL!). Embedding must be enabled for the video! Use Option: No Image: HD Title: YouTube HD BB Code Tag Name: youtubehd Replacement: HTML Code: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v={param} Example: [youtubehd]R7yfISlGLNU[/youtubehd] Description: Embed an HD YouTube video. You only put the video ID in between the BBCode tags (NOT the full URL!). Embedding must be enabled for the video! Use Option: No Image: Important Note! A link to the YouTube video is displayed if the YouTube video fails to load. There are a variety of reasons this might occur: - You didn't properly enter the video ID between the BB code tags. - You don't have the latest version of Flash. - You are using Firefox and have a conflicting extension (AdBlock, NoScript, a Greasemonkey script, etc). - The video doesn't allow embedding. - You have some other problem on your end (corrupt browser install, spyware, virus, etc.). - YouTube is currently having a problem.
