Embedding pics and videos

Postby stringbean » 2:28 pm, 9th July, 2012

Just to let people know that they can embed videos and photos in messages using bbcode.

People are free to post anything that they think people will enjoy or think is relevant to the club. Any abuses of this will not be tolerated.

Photos
These need to be hosted on a website like flickr or Facebook:

You were trying to embed the page that has the photo. Right-click on the photo and select 'Copy Image URL' (or similar). Then paste this into the img tag:
