How to use the internetz

Post by Turdacious » Thu Feb 06, 2014 1:49 am

An IGx guide for those who need it.

Youtube videos:

1. Copy the address of the youtube video; in the box for text on IGx click the 'youtube' button; place cursor between the [youtube][/youtube]; right click on your mouse; click on paste. If you place spaces between the brackets, your link will not work.
For example, will not work, but if you remove the spaces on both sides of the address, it will work.

2. If the video is not working, remove the s from the https: in the address.
For example this will not work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B64vHLuUkio
This will: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B64vHLuUkio

3. This address will not work: http://youtu.be/iWkX30rUrsg
Often you can copy the title of the video and the name of the uploader in the youtube search box. Click search, and find the video again. Usually the address for the same video will be different after you do this, and will work.

4. Use the preview button when posting to see if it works (Note-- this will not work for powerbears using ipadz.)

If you want to search this forum but find the search function absolutely useless, do this:

Go to google. In the search field type "<your search words>" site:irongarmx.net

To post youtube vids, place a space between the address and the youtube buttons.
This won't work: [youtube]youtubeaddress[/youtube]
This will: [youtube] youtubeaddress [/youtube]
Examples are below:
