YouTube Video Gallery Added

Post by RoadWarrior » Sun May 07, 2017 2:57 pm

I have installed an extension to the site that will allow posting of YouTube only video's in the forums. You will now notice a Videos option in the action bar (beside FAQ).

To post a video:
1) Copy the YouTube URL
2) Click the Videos link above
3) Click the New Video button
4) Paste the YouTube URL into the "Enter Video URL" box
5) Select the appropriate category from the "Select a category" drop down.
6) Click submit

You will see your video and the title of it appear in the gallery.

You can also access the Video Gallery page here:

Please make sure you select the proper category...the default seems to be HHR. As the page grows, it will get large fast and to find videos will be based on category....

I would also suggest we use it to post X rider member related content rather than the YouTube interest of the day....things that we want to keep for posterity... just a thought but it's your forum!

So.........what is a "You Tube only" video?

I'm not too savvy here. If I want to post a video I have to post it to You Tube first then copy it to our web site?
I've never posted a video anywhere.

Well, sort of. The add-on only takes YouTube URL's. Many people will post their video's to YouTube anyways because it is easier to share all around.

You don't have to do this, but the add-on only recognizes YouTube
