Youtube links in signatures?

So I had a Youtube link in my signature, and everything looked fine when I previewed it in my profile. But then when I previewed a post, it showed the link as an actual video, not just a link.

Obviously it's not appropriate to have a whole video in your signature, so I removed the link entirely. How I can insert a Youtube link without it automatically turning into a video?

Re: Youtube links in signatures?

Hmmm.

Maybe try using html.

< a href="link to video" >description of video< /a >

Omit the spaces after and before the angle brackets when you do it.

Re: Youtube links in signatures?

Ok, let's see if it worked...

Edit: It did. Weird, because in the post preview it was still showing the video. I checked and it converted the HTML back to BBCode anyway, so I guess the video showing in signatures was only in preview mode. Strangeness.

The YouTube link only, remove the Addf link before it.

Re: Youtube links in signatures?

My sig shows as a video in preview all the time, but clearly does not show as a video when I post. Just forum weirdness.
