Youtube videos:

First I’ll post this image:

The text surrounded by the red is what you need to copy+paste to post a video. You don’t need to check “Include Related Videos”. The Youtube code has updated over time, so you’ll get a different code now. For example this one:

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe>

  • Changing Size:
    The “width” and “height” you see can be used to change the size of the video. Youtube also does this for you by changing the numbers in the custom section. For entries, KYM uses a width of 425 for stand-alone vids, and 300 for vids placed next to each other or in tables. So the following code:

<iframe width="300" height="233" src="" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe>

Will change into:

  • Editing certain features:

You can give you video certain features like autoplay or replay. To do this, place a questionmark (?) behind the Url in the embed code and follow that by one of the following codes.

  • Autoplay: To make your video have autoplay, add autoplay=1 behind the questionmark. Autoplay is only allowed on your profile wall! Nowhere else!
    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe>
  • Start at certain point: To let the videos start from a certain point, add start=X behind the questionmark. With X being the start of the video in seconds. So to start the video at 30 seconds, use:
    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe>
  • Loop: Some videos already loop themselves, but in case they don’t you have to add loop=1 behind the questionmark. This creates:
    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe>

These features can also be combined. To do this, you have to put a “&” between each code feature. So for example:

<iframe width="500" height="500" src=";autoplay=1" allowfullscreen="true"></iframe>

Will create a 500 by 500 video in autoplay starting at 40 seconds.

Not everything you’d like to know might be added here. If you want to know more about textile, feel free to ask. You’ll be answered as fast as possible.

Also be aware that some codes may not work on the forums, but do work on entries, and visa versa.

I noticed we didn’t have a few other things in here. So…

If you want to create a 2 column list, you can use:

To get:

  • Some Stuff
  • Other Stuff

This is typically used for the sources on entries, but can be used in the forums as well.

[1]some link

[2]some link

If you want to create a divider line like I just did above, you have to include a new line, a series of underscores (However many you feel like “_________”), and then another new line before your next paragraph.

If you want to make the text of your paragraph very small, just include a space before your first letter. This is more or less a glitch that you can take advantage of, but nonetheless it works.

Want to play DDR? Need to use arrows? gives you:

↑ ↓ ← →

Need to erase something? Want to strike through a sentence? Just put minus signs (“-”) on both sides of the sentence.

Also note that for most textile features like (bq.) or any strikethroughs, starting a new paragraph will end/ignore the textile, so in some instances it becomes necessary to use the HTML versions.
