Example Codes For Forums Post Lesson

For Videos:
Example of full embed code from youtube
Using one of my videos for the example:

This is the whole embed code you get from youtube.

<object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/i9yTtRnHXw4?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/i9yTtRnHXw4?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>

Now, here is all the code you actually need for the above video:
Compare the two to see what you can take out:

I took out everything from <object, to the word <embed. Make sure you leave the < infront of the word embed, and take out the last word in the upper code </object> along with the brackets.

<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/i9yTtRnHXw4?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed>

Obove code is size width="640" height="385"

Now that you have done that, you can change the size to fit your needs:
Follow, campare previous edited code to next example and see size change:

Now a smaller size width="440" height="300"
Make sure you don't take out the quote marks or the = sign

<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/i9yTtRnHXw4?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="440" height="300"></embed>

You can change the size of a video to fit your needs. 640 is the most popular size for a forum video post, 440 by 300 is a good size for posting on your personal page.
To post a video on your page, copy the embed code and paste it into the commentary section of your post. The video will play above your post. Same applies for larger pictures.
For Pictures
Example of html code for posting larger pictures to your post or in the forums:

<a href="http://acrossing.net/ashadi/files/2010/10/mother-nature-new1.jpg"><img title="mother nature new" src="http://acrossing.net/ashadi/files/2010/10/mother-nature-new1-650x493.jpg" /></a>

Seem confussing,,,,,,,well don't worry........This is html code needed for wordpress sites like blogger and works on this site. Now if you do not have access to a site that uses html or don't know how to get the html, for now don't worry, we will figure out a way for you too later. For now please feel free to email me your image and I will get the html code for you and post it back for you to copy and paste into your post. my email is ashadi9895@gmail.com
and I do not mind doing this at all for any of my poet friends here on this wonderful site. Later maybe we who are doing the ins and outs info for you can get with Papa and find a way to get a text editor on here where you can get the html code......but don't let all this worry you it is really a simple thing...........

ok back to the code above for pictures......again you can change the size of your picture to suit your post needs. Change the width and heigth the same as we did above for the video code. For pictures on your post I would recoment a size of (width="540" height="385"). The height size will be more flexible to change on your page then the width. too wide and your picture runs over into the menu selection on the right..

I will show you examples of these code videos and images in the forums page.....just follow the link back.
I hope this helps you all.......let me know if you need help.....I am happy to help with what I can........love asha

Thanks for the direction and advise so kind of you to take the time.



your welcome dear, its all part of Papa's angels on the in's and outs of op........let me know if you need any help........love asha



ApaqRasgirl - you're a kind and generous soul to invest your time; it's much appreciated; I need all the help I can get; are you certified:) Regarding poetry and the OP site I'm light years away from the rest of the community members, with my skills, postings, uploading videos, etc. It might turn out to be a full-time job - well maybe we can find sometime in the stimulus package to help get me through:) Thanks and love you back...BTW your work is incredible.

Huh, you lost me at Youtube, lol. I would love to view what every you are showing us.



follow the link to the forum page where I started the lesson. Just trying to explain to everyone how to use the codes. You can see what the codes I posted do on the forums page.....sorry but they will not show up in the post and the code will not show in the forums...........I know its odd, so I had to use both for this lesson...........thanks for checking it out........love asha

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
