    Herman,
    On the posting options, go to advanced. You will see the poll option. It will explain itself there.

    Thanks Don, I tried without success. So I'm looking forward to advice and help. Thanks in advance.
    (starting a new thread I don't see going advanced)

    Hi Herman, I have tried this too. For new thread it automatically goes into advanced, but when ticking the poll box and submit, and then filling in the boxes - it then just gives a list - not a poll. Has anybody ever managed to do one ?

    Righto Amin, is there a simple way to embed a youtube video on the forum. I've looked at a few howto videos on (youtube) to find how to do it in a V bulletin but to no avail. I've fluked it once and now i've tried and tried but it beat me. Surely it isn't that hard, but for the life of me I can't figure it.

    Thanks

    Hi icon,

    just click on the <Embed> button beneath the youtube video, copy and paste the code from youtube into your post here, and remove the leading 'object width="480" height="385"' code with angled brackets, and end '/object' in angled brackets.

    <param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/FatHLHG2uGY&amp;hl=en_GB&amp;fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/FatHLHG2uGY&amp;hl=en_GB&amp;fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed>

    Hope that helps

    Cheers

    Brian

    Another way is to copy just the code including and between the
    PHP:
    <embed>
    and
    PHP:
    </embed>
    tags.

    Well, it's a mystery Amin. Because I did exactly those steps this morning - and no poll. I just tried again and it's worked !

    Aside from that, the Jing application is great, not come across that before.
