Yeah the youtube field is only accepts the id of user on youtube for contact..i don't think it knows to automatically do use channel...
but I checked out your youtube.
You can just use nateart as youtube field and it'll link to the same channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/nateart

Then because it's youtube it's listed under Contacts, when people click on Contacts under your avatar they'll see a youtube icon that will link to your channel.

You could always add a link as part of your signature (I think I recommend up to 3 links in your signature) so in total we have website 3 custom links and 3 signature links so 7 should be okay... as long as people don't try to like post 50 links in the signature i am okay with that.

I just noticed NateArt just joined in using this feature as well..yeh
Cool idea - thanks!
I have a YouTube channel, but it keeps telling me that the url has "invalid characters"
It opens in my browser, but not from here.... ?

Nateart, please update your custom urls. Previously i wasn't checking for urls and users could enter anything which i thought was bad so i changed the type of urls to be actual urls so it does more validation... as a result your urls are deleted ..sorry about that.
Please update your urls.

The contact thing doesn't seem to go to my facebook page - that's ok, but I update it more than my website... may revise that one

it's the same with facebook you have to enter just your id instead of the whole link
like my facebook is https://www.facebook.com/trandoductin
I enter trandoductin for the facebook field.

Edited so that when you're viewing private message, the custom links show up properly just like how when you're viewing posts.
Also when you click on a member. It'll say Custom Link 1: then the link with text description (for 2 and 3 as well if you have them). so we don't show all 6 fields used to show 3 links but just show the the 3 links to make things friendlier.
