Adding youtube videos to your posts

2) Click embed below the video
3) Tick the "use old embed code" box
4) Copy the code after ticking the box. You can now post your youtube video.
Adding/Uploading Images To Your Posts
If you want to add an image to your post that is stored on your computer without leaving the post you can do so. First click on the Insert Image icon as shown below:
A screen will then pop up with the options to Add from url, create album and refresh. Along with the folders (albums) from your yuku image storage.
If you already have albums in addition to the Avatar one, you can skip this step. If not, or if you want this image to be in a new album, then click the create album as shown above and it will open up a box below with the same fields that you would see if you were creating a new album while in your image space: Album Name, Album Description, Album Tags and a drop box for Who Can View.
You need to give your album a name. Anything you choose. You can add a
description or tags if you like but it is not necessary. Finally, choose who can
view this album. Your albums are connected to your profile, so if you choose
'everyone' then anyone that looks at your profile can also look at your images.
If you select 'only me' that will make your album private. But of course when
you post an image it will show to everyone.
When you are done, click on the Create Album button as shown in the above image and you should see this next:
Your new Album is now showing next to your Avatar one. Click on the new Album to open it and you will see Add from URL, Upload, and Refresh:
Click on the upload button:
Then click on the Browse button to search your computer. This will open up the standard dialog box for finding a file on your computer.
Choose the image you want from your computer and click on the Open button.
When the image appears in the scroll bar and you see the "imagename.ext" uploaded message, you can click on Add more if you need to add another image. If you are through, click the Done button.
To put the image in your post, just click on it and you will now have the image in your post.
