Yes I know this is in the wrong forum but it needs to be seen by at least 1 moderator or Dave.

After reading a post about how someone didn't know how to embed a Youtube video coupled with my own experience of not knowing how to embed a tweet, I think a thread should be created on how to do things on this forum. It would help raise the quality of posts on here and make the site look more professional to our newer members.

To those that don't know how to embed a tweet;

this is where you would put the tweet link

I think it would be great to find out some of the features that are available but no one ever sees as only a handful of people know about them

That Is a great idea! Also, how about adding a designated button near the "PREVIEW" and "SUBMIT" for attaching social media items (videos, twitter, or photos). It would be easier access for all users when sharing items they find off other social media sites.

Good idea Tempy! Btw to add youtube links all you have to do is copy and paste the link to to the youtube video. Also if you do a regular reply (as opposed to a quick reply), you can pull down a tool bar to add Instagram videos, Facebook videos, and upload an image:

Is it possible you could add this to the quick reply or at least some of the features.

All you have to do is press "Preview" (instead of "Submit") in Quick Reply box and you will be taken to the Regular Reply. That or click "Post Reply" at the top and bottom of the page.
