Unable to cut and paste video from youtube straight into my blog.

  1. I have always just cut and pasted youtube videos into my blog using the address given by youtube but I am no longer able to do this as I get a message saying I have to use some kind of shortcut instead of it just being added automatically. It still says on the help advice that I should be able to do a simple cut and paste. Please could you help as i don't understand the message that I am getting.

    The blog I need help with is patricia1957.wordpress.com.

  2. Thank you. This is the message I am getting as soon as I try to cut and paste.

    Please use Ctrl+V/Cmd+V keyboard shortcuts to paste contents.

  3. I would bother fiddling with any of this because I know that simply using the youtube shortcode on a line all by itself like this example below works every time:
    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxu7eZrPUyQ]

  4. So if I type it in directly rather than cutting and pasting but with the brackets round it that will work? I'll have a go.

  5. At last! Thank you so much! I will be able to do that every time now! You are a STAR!

  6. You're welcome and best wishes. :)
