When I copy/paste a link I get the link name.

How do you guys turn the links into pictures and vids (with the play button ready for launch)?

Thanks,

To post a photo, click on the Picture icon (circled in red)...

...which will launch this dialog box:

Then paste the full link to the image into the URL field. Alternatively, you can just manually type
tags around the URL.

To post a YouTube video, click the YouTube button (circled in blue) and then paste the 11-character video code between the tags, all on one line. The video code is the bit that comes after "v=" in a YouTube URL, as highlighted in bold below:

Or put [ I M G ] (without the spaces) before the url and [ / IMG ] after the url...

e.g. for this avatar inspiration (charlie & the chocolate factory)
