I have made a custom BB code to allow you to embed Youtube videos directly into your posts. All you need to do is find the blue square with you tube in it on the tool bar when making a post. Click the blue square and then enter only the video file name in between the youtube tags. It should look something like this : {youtube}3ZrJB6OHI8M{/youtube}

The brackets will be different on the actual code. If I used the real brackets then you would see the video and not the example code.

Do you plan to put a text option tag as well. That way you could wrap could that would otherwise get interpreted and display it as the raw typed text. I believe that setting was avalible on the old BB site.

I saw

by the way many of the simleys in the editor are broken links
