    Hello again,

    I have a form field that users fill with a YouTube URL, how can I copy the code after ?v= to another field so that I may use that new field to pass as a parameter later?


    All YouTube links have https://www.youtube.com/watch?v= then the video ID like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrGw_cOgwa8

    How can I copy the code after ?v= which would UrGw_cOgwa8 into another form field so that can use that field within an email?

    In essence I am creating a new link and I would like to use the above as a parameter in the email I send.


    Thank you again for being so AWESOME!!
