Posting a URL

Is posting just the URL to a bike related website or You Tube instructional video not within the rules - when I attach
a url to a video in a post - a copy and paste - it appears in the post as a picture showing the beginning of the video rather than just the URL - should I be attaching it to the post in a different way ?

Use the link (chain) icon NOT the picture icon. Cut/paste link into the "URL" box and it should work. I hope that helps, but not sure that's exactly what you are asking. If you just want the link but don't want to embed the video in your post I believe you just cut/paste the link into the post without using the link icon.

Some things like YouTube vid's and such will come in as the actual video or picture instead of just the link you may have copied and pasted or drug over to the editor window.

In such cases, just use the linking tool on the editor bar and put the URL in the proper place and give it a display text. I'm pretty certain you can even just put the URL itself as the display text.

Pretty much what datlas already said.
