    BBcode is just a fancy name for the tags on the forum that let you do stuff like bold text, add images, links, etc.
    HTML:
    Examples: this makes stuff bold and this makes stuff italic
    STR now has the ability to embed Vimeo videos within posts using BBcode.

    Here's how:

    Vimeo URLs always a code at the end.

    For example, the vimeo URL, http://vimeo.com/2892672U

    PHP:
    means you use [vimeo]2892672U[/vimeo]
    Here's what that code does . . .

    [vimeo]2892672U[/vimeo]

    If the video is non-work friendly, remember to say so on the thread title by adding "NWF" or "not work friendly" to it.

    If you're looking for the instructions on embedding youtube, that's over here.
    Enjoy :beer:
