Board tips including posting YouTube videos

Post by stuphoto »

If you have any board tips please post them.

I will start with a quick YouTube video posting. Done on my Android phone.

Start with I find a YouTube app video I would like to share.

And touch the Share tab.

I now get this screen and touch the Copy Link tab.

Now I open up the Castanet Forums thread I want and touch the reply tab. Sorry no screenshot for this.

Above the reply box you will see some options including YouTube.
Click on this

This screen should pop up

I then touch the screen and have this blue bubble pop up.

I may have to move it between the ] and [ brackets.

At that point I tap the bubble and it gives me the option to Paste

Of course tap that tab.

It should then look like this

At that point you can either touch the Preview tab like I do and confirm I did everything right.
Or the Submit tab.

I imagine there are other methods but this works for me.


I hope this helps

Pro tip: if you put admins on your ignore list, they can't bug you with their warnings about breaking rules!
