Answering the above poster question:
Here is an example....
The above is a Youtube url link. Check out what I did below.
[youtube ]45RTakFg_Pc[/youtube ] < delete » https://www.youtube.com/watch?v= « to here. And from the other end delete everything including the &. Then place the youtube tags... without the spaces i purposely put between the » [youtube ] url [/youtube ]
Note: A hide tag like this » [hide][youtube] url [/youtube ][hide ] is also use for easy flowing of the thread/pages.
Remember...no spaces between the words and brackets
See an example of a standard hidden input tag.
