XF 1.1 Video display in post


Well-known member
I want to give my students a list of youtube videos
it will be awkward to have them actually display in the post as there's 10 of them.
How can I show a list of links without each video embedding?

You could use the 'Plain' BBcode but that won't give you clickable links, only the URL.

Another option could be to use a link shorting service.

you can also do this...

  • paste a link in the editor so it looks like this....

  • delete the http:// part at the beginning

  • highlight that whole thing...

  • and then click the insert/edit link button in the editor...
insert.edit link.png

  • ..paste the full link again in the popup
higlighted and paste linkl.png

it sounds like a lot but once you have done it once or twice it is really quick
