We love to see videos! Cats being cats, dogs being funny, breaking news, inspirational uplifting videos, and especially videos of anything happening in the area!

Now, it's even easier to upload many types of videos to the site. Simply click on the Video Button in the Editor above:


The Click on the "Provider" Drop-down Menu Item and select the source of the video. If you have questions, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.!



In this case, I'm uploading a Vimeo video from this website:


When I hover over the upper right-hand corner, the Share button lights up and I click on that:


When I click on the Share button, this url appears. I can highlight and copy the entire url, or I can grab just the unique identifier at the end of the link:


(Note: if you grab the entire url, enter it into the URL box below the Provider in the Editor above. Make sure to not have 2 "http://" showing or the link won't work)

Once you've got the ID entered, click Insert (don't forget that part!) and your video link will appear in the Reply box like this:
[video width=425 height=344 type=vimeo]41271653[/video]

And appear in your post like this!


Now if you wish the change the size of the video displayed, feel free by entering new values in the respective boxes above "Provider" in the Editor. There is a maximum limit of 800 pixels wide for any image on the site so don't go bigger than that, and keep in mind that bigger may mean it loads slower or is fuzzier/more grainy.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post them here, PM us, or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. anytime!

Here's an example of a YouTube video, and putting in the whole url, as opposed to just the unique video identifier:

1. Find a fun video you wish to post:



2. Highlight and copy (Control C on a PC computer, or Command C on a Mac) the URL at the top
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4U_z7v0Vl4

3. Click the Drop-down arrow next to Provider, scroll down and choose YouTube:


4. Delete the 'http://' from the URL box below the Provider box (it's only meant to be an example to show you what to put there, if you leave it and enter a 2nd 'http://' with your copied URL link, it won't work properly)


5. Enter the URL of the YouTube video. One important point: You MUST DELETE the 's' after http:// or the video will not be visible! Click Insert:


6. Voila, your video appears below!



If you want to save the extra trouble of having to delete the http:// from the URL box, just enter the unique video ID. In this case, that would be c4U_z7v0Vl4 (everything after the 'watch?v=' in the YouTube URL link).
