[Solved] Syntax for YouTube-tags?

Post by Barbie » Sat May 14, 2016 9:11 pm

I messed around with this forums' syntax for YouTube-tags: neither [yt][/yt] nor [yt][/yt] works... Where can I look up its syntax?

Things can be so easy sometimes... Thanks! :tu:
(It is logical also: if I use YT tags, the host name youtube.com should be given implicit. So only the ID of that object is needed.)

I think Shade tweaked the tag. Because other phpBB forums I visited use indeed the full url.

I changed the tooltip of the yt-BBCode. It says now: "YouTube: [yt]Video-ID[/yt] (Insert only the ID of the video, not the full address!)"
Hope it's more clear now. :)
