    I haven't tried this...but I know how to copy and paste here...it's just a matter of using the film reel icon and then paste the link in the box provided.

    Obviously just doing a copy and paste of a high-lighted headline is not going to do it.
    When i reply to a thread i see nowhere in the body where there is a "film reel" or "film strip" or "paper airplane".

    Could someone go over this again for a computer numbskull.
    Right click on the Youtube video you want to post. One of the options will be " Copy Video URL " . Left click on that which will copy it. Go back to your post and left click the little video strip in the top selections. Hit control and V to paste it. Done......

    In the reply box, click on this icon:

    Then paste the video link in the pop up box

    This is embarrassing.
    A right click on the Youtube video, a left click on the copy url code, a return to reply to thread and there are no film reels, video strips or paper airplanes in sight.

    At the bottom of the bottom of the GSResources reply to thread page there are "Posting Permissions"
    BB code is on
    Similies are on
    {img] code is on
    [video] code is on
    HTML code is off

    Could the HTML code have anything to do with this?

    I am on my laptop, Windows 10 , Firefox.

    Are you not seeing a bar along the top with symbols on it ? The video clip is the second from the right........

    Absolutely no bar with symbols across the top when i return to the post.
    The bar doesn't show in "quick reply" or "go advanced".

    I am deciding that some sort of voodoo is involved.

    Thanks for have patience with this.

    That is weird... The only thing I can think of is something is different in your settings......So I went in to General settings for a look.... The only items I can see that might affect what you see are under " Miscellaneus settings " On mine the " Message Editor Interface " is set to " Enhanced Interface " and the " Forum Skin " is set to "v84 Default Style ".... and " Enhanced Attachment Uploading is set to " Enhanced Attachment on " ....... Not sure if that effects what you are seeing or not but maybe worth a look.....

    settings
    General Settings
    You want Message editor interface to be Enhanced- Full WYSIWYG. (What you see I what you get). make sure to save. This should give You back the toolbar with the film strip.
