Very dangerous allowing all users to be able to insert html.
Why not just install the [Youtube] bbcode mod?

That someone might potentially insert malicious code. That it is why it is advised not to enable HTML and why it is at NO by default.
If you want the mod for adding Youtube then I can post it here.
I have it on my own site and it is used on almost a daily basis.
The mod gives you an extra button on the posting box that you use in just the same way as the other bbcodes.

ok, is the BB code easy to do? I think you remember what I am like!! willing to give it a go though.

regarding the html, I had the default tags allowed plus "embed" for youtube clips, I set "allow html" in the configuration and in my profile, putting the embedded youtube code in worked for me but other users cant see it, just the code.

From what I recall it was an easy mod to install. I will get it off my desktop PC tomorrow and email it to you as for some reason I can not get attachments to show here. I just tried to attach an image of my posting box but it would not do it. On my laptop at the moment.

Sorry but I have emailed that many folks over the years that I don't have your email address now. If you still have mine then it is unchanged.
If not then here it is so it can't be harvested j.hatch(at)tiscali dot co dot uk

I will power up the desk top in the morning and await your email so that I can send it to you. I will try first to add it as an attachment but at last try it was not working. I have sent a message to Dave to that effect.

Reply and the required mods sent to you.
It requires the Multi BBcode to be added first.
