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....
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tdfqa41K8k​

  • delete the http:// part at the beginning
www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tdfqa41K8k​

  • 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
