To insert symbols into your submission you will need to use one of our tags. Doing so will ensure that your video is diplayed correctly on the LabTube website.
For example: If you wanted to use the Greek letter β you would simpy use the tag [gb/] in place of the Β symbol.
If you wanted to use superscript you would use the tags [sup] and [/sup]. Eg. [sup]2[/sup] would become 2

Yes, you can. To build links within your Video description, we ask that you use a set of custom square bracket  tags so that your link will appear correctly on our website.

These tags are:

  1. [url]

  2. [link] - The website link that you would like the user to go to.

  3. [name] - Refers to the text that appears on screen.

Take a look at the examples in the table below to learn how to put together square brackets  to correctly build a link.

ExampleHow the link will appear on LabTube
Example[url][link][/link][name]LabTube[/name][/url]How the link will appear on LabTube
Example[url][link][/link][name]LabTube Account[/name][/url]How the link will appear on LabTube
Example[url][link][/link][name]LabTube Following[/name][/url]How the link will appear on LabTube

Each link should have a [url] tag at the start and a [/url] at the very end. Insert your link between the [link] & [/link] tags and the text you would like to appear on screen between the [name] & [/name].

We suggest you copy & paste one of the link examples above and edit the link and name to your preference.
