I have resolved this issue.

It has not been added to the wiki as of yet. The FAQ on the top part of the forum belongs to phpbb, so we won't be messing with that one.

I was having problems putting a youtube vid in http://forum.expressobeans.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=57802&p=862779#p862779
(El Topo/Martin Ansin art comments thread) and was getting a white box, akin to the one that appears up there ^
Upon changing the "425,344" to "640,385", all seems good to go :wink:
