  1. How to post a tweet in VillaTalk VillaTalk guidelines ask that posters please post a link to tweets, rather than screenshots. This is because if a tweet is deleted due to legal issues, it also disappears from VT and we don't get into legal trouble. Here's how to post a link to a tweet. If viewing twitter in a browser, do this: Click the little arrow next to the tweet (see picture) and a drop down appears - select "</> Embed tweet" then go to VT and in your posting/reply box simply paste the copied link (ctrl + v or cmd +v, or right click + paste). Next, see what happens. Most browsers will automatically embed the tweet. If it doesn't embed, you may need to click the "paste as plain text" link as shown below (or you can paste via ctrl + shift + v in a windows browser which also has the same effect as the "paste as plain text instead"): If you are using tweetdeck to view twitter, then at the bottom of each tweet are 3 little dots. Click the dots and then select "copy link to this tweet" Then as per the above, paste the link into VT in your browser If you're using twitter for iPhone or iPad, then next to the tweet is a "forwarding" icon (an up arrow in a tray). Select that and choose “share tweet via” and then select the link icon for "copy link to tweet" And paste the link into VT as above. On Android, like on the browser, look for the little down arrow in the top right of the tweet. "Copy link to Tweet" (or "Embed Tweet" if there's no "copy link" option) and then paste it into VillaTalk. Please allow 2-3 seconds for the site to format your post and make the tweet visible before clicking on "Submit Reply". And a video (thanks to @Dick
  2. Ok with over 3000 posts now I think its time I learnt how to do this. I need instruction from scratch folks which will also help new members. Please advise in a way the non technically gifted can understand.
  3. How to embed YouTube videos In YouTube, click "Share" A link is displayed, copy this using ctrl-c (or however you usually copy e.g. right click + copy / cmd+c ). Note: If you want to start at a particular point in the video, click the start at box and enter the time, then copy the link - see image. To find out if embedding of the link you have just copied is permitted, click "embed" (do not copy the new youtube link it presents) If it says embedding is not allowed, then embedding on VT will not work and you can only post a link. Back in VT, use your browser's "paste as plain text" option. (ctrl-shift-v on most things, Command-Shift-Option-V on MacOS). If your browser doesn't have its own, use ctrl-rightclick Press return Click submit When it doesn't work, realise that you didn't do step 6
  4. I'm sure someone will tell me it's been answered somewhere before but after searching I can't find it. I have tried changing my avatar but can't work out how to do it. I've changed my profile pic which changes the wider banner on my profile, but the avatar stayed the same. I am afraid I will need idiot proof step by step instructions suitable for an old codger who never even saw a computer at school. Thanks.
  5. A guide to embedding Instagram posts. In a browser Open the Instagram post Click the three dots in the bottom right Click "Copy link" and then paste that link into your post
  6. Hi all. Next month as of the 9th June, I'll be starting on an interrailing tour of mid/West Europe. I'm starting in Berlin -> Prague -> Vienna -> Bratislava -> Ljubljana -> Milan -> Nice -> Paris Youth hostelling and all in the respective cities all booked and whatnot. But just thought I'd ask for peoples recommendations for interrailing travel, their experiences, how much kit/travelling stuff they took and the best things to do in said cities without spending too much. Cheers!
