Hi all,

Just a brief tutorial to explain to you all how to add youtube videos to areas around our site including: News, Achievements Guides, Cheats, Reviews, Forums and just about anywhere you can submit info.

Here are the codes you want to learn to use:

Add a YOUTUBE VIDEO
1. Go to youtube.com and browse for the video you would like to embed in our website.
2. Copy and paste the Exact URL from youtube.com into any form
3. Your code should now look like this:
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKV1eyGrzPI

4. To embed the movie into our webpages just add the following tags.
5.
Code:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKV1eyGrzPI[/youtube]


Add a IMAGE
1. Find the exact location of the image you would like to display from your browser.
eg. http://www.360-hq.com/images/icon_disk.gif
2. To add this image to any page of our site submit it like this:
Code:
[img]http://www.360-hq.com/images/icon_disk.gif[/img]


I will update this tutorial when i get more time. If others have more to add please feel free to reply..

cheers,

hobbs

Very nice man should be useful around the site. A few more I can think of would be for urls, bolding, and underlines..

Add a URL
Try this one for a word for word link like this:
http://www.360-hq.com
Code:
[url]http://www.360-hq.com[/url]


Add a Custom URL
This one for a custom link title:
My Custom Link
Code:
[url=http://www.360-hq.com.]My Custom Link[/url]


Add Bold to your Text
This for bolding:
Code:
[b]Bolded Text goes here[/b]


Add Underline to your Text
This is for underlining
Code:
[u]Underlined Text goes here[/u]


Add Italics to your Text
This is for underlining
Code:
[i]Italic Text goes here[/i]


Add Quotes
You can quote anyone in the forums, and even other websites. Just make sure you put who you are quoting, and if from another topic or website quote who and link back to it with a url after.

Lists
This is a list
    Item 1
    Item 2
    Item 3
Code:
[list]Item 1
Item 2
Item 3[/list]


Add Color to your Text
Tip, you can add basic colors, aswell as using Hex Triplets!
This is for color
Code:
[color=green]color[/color]
or
[color=#008000]color[/color]


Add Size to your Text
12 is the basic forum size, larger is bigger, smaller is smaller.
This is for Size
Code:
[size=15]Size[/size]



You can now use bbcode outside of the forums too, for places like My Blogs, achievement guides, etc (News is next to get the bbcode treatment)

For an example of a youtube video in an achievement guide here it is
Call_of_Duty_4_Xbox_360_Achievements-414-guides-3700.html#Mile_High_Club

Would be great to see some more bbcode usage around the site, and this will help out anyone with any questions!

If you have any questions feel free to ask


Best Regards,

If anyone finds some interesting youtube videos all you have to do is post the LINK to the youtube page with the new tags around it as explained above..

It will be great if you find a guide you think might be useful.

feel free to give it a go.. It works the same in your BLOG! Smile
