Post Posting Images and Youtube Videos!!!
As per Mike Ward's request, we are now able to VERY SIMPLY embed Youtube videos here on the Soup! Just a little coding and we now have a new button above the text box called "youtube"

When you visit a youtube video, it has an 11 digit code in the URL. Highlight, copy, and paste that code into your text box on the Soup. Example, you want to embed this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPRD89rcHXc . Only copy the 11 numbers and letters at the end, so: fPRD89rcHXc will be your video in the text box on the Soup. Highlight the code and click the youtube button. This will add the code tags and YOU'RE DONE!

Images are similar, except you need the ENTIRE URL for the image. Most guys already know how to do this, but if you're new to phpbb, here's how to do it: Find the photo you want to embed in your photobucket, or flicker, or snapfish (non-passworded photo sharing website), or other website. Example: http://www.seeinstripes.com and you want to copy the image at the bottom of the page. put your arrow on the photo and right click. If using IE, you will have to select "properties" and then highlight the image URL and copy. If using google chrome (recommended), right click and select "copy image url." Go back to your message box on the Soup, cilck the 'Img' button above the message box and paste the URL between the two IMG codes. YOU'RE DONE! You can do this as many times as you want. This is how my reports have a million photos sometimes! 8-)

If you have any questions, too bad.

Below are the examples of the two above tutorials:

Post UPDATE TO POSTING IMAGES
Unlike the OLD soup, the NEW soup has ATTACHMENT capability. Members can attach a file like a picture, or anything else to their post. This is a good way to post pictures without having to share them with the ENTIRE WORLD like you do when you post them to photobucket or snapfish, etc...

Below the message box is a section appropriately entitled "upload attachment." All you have to do is click the "choose file" button and you will open a new window that shows your computer. Hopefully by now, you know how to navigate to the various drives and folders and files on your computer. Select the correct file, hit "open" and then hit "add the file." It will be posted in your message with a green border.
