So to change that click my link which says "Edit options" in my earlier post. Near the top of the screen there is an antispam question which you need to answer (with boat) and then scroll to the very bottom. There there is a drop down menu - change this to wysiwyg. Save.

Should be fixed.

Cheers Neil got it and the spam question. Tx

NOTE - The new site update (Forum Update on Monday - Q & A) now means you can embed any youtube video by directly pasting the full youtube url into your post (no longer need to use the special YOUTUBE tags or work out the video ID).

Yes - this has been added. Here's what you need to know:

A typical vimeo url has a string of numbers at the end like this: ht tp:// m/channels/staffpicks/80209061

To embed, extract the numbers (video ID) and either wrap it in these tags: [ vimeo] [ /vimeo] (removing all spaces) or use the new tool on the advanced editor tool bar to add the tags. Then simply paste the number in between the opposing center brackets.

The video should render in the post like this:
