Adding link to my YouTube channel on these forums

Post by azn »

Hello, no matter which ID from my YT settings I put on YT channel in my profile it cannot properly redirect me to my channel.

What exactly should be written in that field?

the forums use standard bbcode I think so if you want to post a link you can with:

Code: Select all

[url=https://www.google.com]google[/url]
and it shows up like this:
google

so as long as you have the correct url for your youtube account you can type it in where I typed www.google.com and then the text you want to represent your link you should be good.

one thing to note is youtube's home page for your youtube account might not be the the correct link if your displaying your dashboard.

for mine it would look something like this:

Code: Select all

[url=https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB1TGkUuF_aIECLhep4X2pQ]minty_64[/url]

until a person reaches a certain goal you cannot have a custom url from youtube

Thank you but that's not what I've meant. I meant Youtube channel ID format in profile settings. Just cannot get it right.
