    When I put a youtube link in a forum post, the software turns the link into a full inline video. This is not always what I want because (a) it takes a lot of space on the page, and (b) its handling of links to times within videos i.e. using the &t=... format seems buggy.

    How can I just post a link as a link to a youtube video?

    Rather than just pasting the link into a thread, use the link icon.

    It is in the middle of the toolbar when you are entering a comment, From left to right you should see B (bold), I (italics), etc. It is the 7th icon, sort of looks like an oval chain.

    For it to work you need to first type in a name, heading title, etc. You can simply use "link", for example.

    Link

    Shade the wording you are using (such as my 'link', above), click on that chain icon, and paste in the URL (in this case, to a youtube video).


    Hope that helps.
