Offroad VW based vehicles have problems/insights all their own. Not to mention the knowledge gained in VW durability.

Seems like we need a YouTube tutorial as well. I couldn't figure out how to embed a video in my post. I remember BigDave explaining it in a thread somewhere, but couldn't find it.

Youtube is easy. Copy the URL from YOUTUBE, paste it on the thread/post you want it, highlight that URL then click on the youtube icon at the top of your post ( under the "B" bold icon) and it will put the youtube on each end of the url. Some youtube links just won't take the youtube link. This help any?

If you are logged into youtube, the url is different. Trim it and change prefix if necessary to resemble above.

^ that is more or less how a working youtube link should work. the part that says "?vHJAKNLSF" is the bit that links to the video you want, sometiems there will be a = at the end of that lump of letters followed by maybe =ref or =adsf or some other junk, delete it up to that point so it looks like above, and you are good.

Hey everyone, just got a new phone and the new photobucket ap is not what the old used to be. What are people using now? Still photobucket? Or am I a dinosaur?

i am waiting for Tapatalk to work again.... i haven't tried photobucket with my phone and i am not sure where my digital camera is, haven't used it since the trip to Utah/Arizona.

photobucket should work, heck maybe there is an app for it.

The links you posted that I have seen all run together with no gaps, needs a space between them end [/img] and beginning of next [img] (or url) starting the next link.
You can still drag select and open the highlighted URL, but simply adding a space between the links should fix it and make the pics show up or at least be clickable.

Maybe this has already been covered but we used to be able to post here directly off our computers but that does not seem to be an option for me now. Since I it seems that I cannot access Photobucket anymore to post and don't have Tap-a-talk is there any other options than going onto another storage site like Photobucket?

tapatalk is just like using photobucket just another hosting site but it doubles at forum poster.
I use a school computer and they blocked Photobucket so i started using thesambas photo hosting and embedding them from there still have to comply by size limits but it works and the its on another vw site so share the knowledge.

Lee, when posting a new post hit the attachment link, select the pic (insure proper size before this step). once selected then hit upload and place it in your post. Still able to post pics. When posting using a off site picture it isn't a part of STF and if you move or delete it in its place it will disappear here, if uploaded here then it stays with STF. Only downside is that it does eat up space, small but still there.
