Topic Wiki

If your video is not embedding, see if your link starts with "https" - if it does, change it to "http" and it will work.

If a video isn't embedded you should assume it may be inappropriate for some people.

How do I embed a Youtube video?
Click the "youtube" button on the second row on the furthermost left side.
You will now have the words: [youtube][/youtube] in your editor.
Now, copy and paste the youtube video id (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0&x=y) in between the middle brackets in order for it to look like this:
    [youtube]oHg5SJYRHA0[/youtube]
and leave out this part of the link: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v="

Or you can paste the you tube link, highlight it, and then click on the "YouTube" button. this will encase the link in the youtube tags,
Now just click "post" and you're done!



How can I search if a video has been posted here before?
This is not foolproof, but it's a good start.
Search for the youtube ID (youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0)

Tough situation. Best not to put yourself in it in the first place, but once there it's hard to ask for anything else. Just going to be awkward.

Same can be said about many tough situations.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

They have a very interesting series of videos going here, but this one was particularly interesting to me, especially the part where they explain that the torch of the statue of liberty was damaged in this incident, and never opened to the public again since that time.

The outdoor portion? The torch was open after that.

I don't believe there is an indoor portion to the torch. Maybe you mean the crown, which is currently open to visitors?

the Torch? No. The torch, accessed by a narrow 40 foot ladder, has been closed to the public since July 30, 1916.

I havent been there in 30+ years but recall the stairs to the torch.

ETA: Guess it is correct.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
