I am trying to do the opposite! I have the 'embed flash into posts' box unchecked, but still the link is embedded and the usual picture with the white 'play' arrow is in the post. I just want the url to appear. How do I manage this, please?


Edit: Please ignore, I have found the correct box and it has worked!

I now have a new problem! If the url of the YouTube link is posted, that is fine. However, if the link is included in BB code, so that it just says, Click here, the whole box appears as if it is embedded. Any ideas how to change this? I have trawled through Admin, but can't fathom out how to do it. Of course, if I disable BBcode it works, but I don't wish to do this as people use it for other web site links.
