Put a YouTube video in your boat ad

Hey everybody. Today I've been working on a new feature for the site: embedding YouTube video in classified ads. Users can now add any video from YouTube to enhance their listings. We're hopeful that video will help our users buy and sell even more effectively.

Check out a sample here: http://www.tradingdock.org/680

You will see the "YouTube Video URL" field when you place your next Trading Dock ad.

The video will be embedded in the ad below your ad description. The YouTube URL should be in the form of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABCDEF123456, as shown in the URL box underneath your video's YouTube description (the letters and numbers after the equal sign are the important part that identify your video).

If you encounter problems or need help posting a video, please contact us with the feedback form on the Trading Dock homepage. Let us know about any bugs you find so we can patch them up right away.

Matt
