I think I may have figured out the issue. There was apparently a conflict with the bbcodes (that's what goes around things like links and images and stuff so that the system knows how to display/process them). I believe that I've fixed it now, but feel free to test it out.
There is now also a "media" button on the right side of the editing window toolbar. You can use that to embed a bunch of different things...full list here: http://s9etextformatter.readthedocs.io/ ... bed/Sites/

FYI. Windows 10 has a nice built-in screen recorder (captures audio as well). I just used it for first time to record the winner for the Pigskin Parlay Lucky Losers contest winner.

Here is the not-too-professional end result: https://youtu.be/GMZFvGLPKUA

Press Windows + G keys to get to the recorder.

Also, I am leaning toward Vue instead of Angular for the next generation of user interface. Angular is considerably more powerful but a bitch to learn. Vue seems more flexible and easier to get started with. Will make final decision after finishing the Udemy Vue course.
The other major player is React which Facebook uses and is fairly popular.

If you were a loser in the Lucky Loser contest, you now have a second chance to win. I left out a player who lost in a tiebreaker situation back in week 8. I will be adding him and spinning again later this evening, probably just after watching the Coach Fish Show.
