OK,OK,OK... No one is "in trouble". LOL 😆
Just wanted to give the influx of new guys to logistics of posting a link, image, or a video on this site to make it "live".
If you are going to post a link, you will see the paperclip 📎 icon as you type. You hit that and paste the copied link and it goes "live" when you publish your post. If you just paste it in the body of your post, when you publish, it stays as an inanimate piece of text.
To embed an image or a video, hit the plus symbol and paste the link there - then publish or update.
Hope I haven't confused the shit out of everyone. 😁
