You can view videos hosted on either YouTube or Vimeo in a window within your post. The process is simple. Place your cursor where you want the video to appear. Then click on either the Vimeo button or the Youtube button at the top of the page. This will generate teh following BBcode:

[Vimeo][/Vimeo] Or [youtube][/youtube]

To get the video onto the page copy the URL or web address of the video and place the address between the two hlves of the two halves of the generated code. The video does not appear in the preview window, but will appear whn the topic is posted. If there is a big demand, I can find the BBcodes needed to let videos from other hosting sites be incorporated into topics.

Photographs hosted on a remote site can also be embedded into a post. Just folow the same procedure describe above for the videos - click on the IMG button above and put the URL or web address of the video between the IMG tags.
