    Default baby-step guides for making advanced posts

    Hi all,
    I have seen one guide for embedding images into a post somewhere in a thread already but it would be nice if there were baby-step guides for things like embedding images, video etc. and I would also like to know how you can change an embedded link from the clunky address to a suave title when you stick it in a post.
    That's three things that I wish I could do but can't, I'm sure that there are more that I haven't thought of.
    I am sure that the information is there somewhere but it would be great to have it in the FAQ or somewhere obvious for us noobs that are more used to the intuitive apple GUI.

    Any thoughts?

    No worries guys, I'll try make some tutorials.
    In the meantime, if you want to do some research, look into BBCode - that's the language the form uses to construct posts: BBCode - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Cheers decryption.
    Had a quick look at the Wiki link.
    I can see that there is some reading for me to do in the near future.

    I can manage the embedded link, but I've wondered why the button above where one is typing the post doesn't do it automatically.

    I'd appreciate info on images and other things.

    Cheers,

    Whoops, I just managed to edit my whole post away by accident.

    Here is an image of some street art that I found back in '06.



    Let's see if I can embed some video next.

    Wahoo, success!

    Muchas gracias muchachos
