Dan...a new twist has been noticed on the board since you've changed over. When I click on a link within a post to be directed to another website, instead of opening a new window in my browser, I leave the HH forum and am redirected to the linked web page in the same browser window. Not good, huh???? :hammer:

Yeah, I noticed this one too. A bit unfortunate. Why does this happen on some sites and not others? Why isn't it just the same across the board, that a new window opens?

You can avoid leaving HH by right clicking on the link and selecting 'open in new tag'

Awesome. Sounds easy enough. Thanks for the tip. :)

OK, to insert a video into your post, you want to press the "Insert Media" button ---> media.png

 

When the box pops up, just paste the URL (NOT the embed code) from whatever video you want inserted in your post.

 

For example, here is the link for Mike Reno - Chasing the Angels on YouTube:

 

But here it is when I use the "insert media" button:

This is what I get even after following your instructions, hence the reason I still have to use links :doh:

You've got one too many "http://" in there. When you paste the info into the box that pops up, make sure you've only got one "http://" in there.

That was why I could not post links, images or insert media because when you copied the url, the http:// would add on to the one that is already provided in the pop-up.

So now I have to delete one of the http:// from the pop-up and everything then works!!!!!

Thanks again for clarifrying that :tumbsup:
