Video won't embed

  1. Hi,
    I just posted a youtube video link according to the directions and searched the help files. The link shows up as a link on the blog rather than as an embedded video. The blog is http://adhdchildren.wordpress.com/

    Thanks for your help.

  2. Don't use those instructions. Use the shortcode; it's the only thing that always works.

    [youtube=URL]

  3. I've tried the shortcode as well, and it also doesn't work. When I publish, the URL shows up (just as words, not as a link), but the video does not. Other ideas?

  4. Please post an active link starting with http:// to your blog.

  5. Thanks. That's what I suspected. We cannot help you here at WordPress.com with that site as it’s not being hosted by WordPress.com and we run on different software. This is the correct forum for your software http://wordpress.ORG/support/ If you have not registered a WordPress.org username account yet you can do so on the top right hand corner of the page I just linked to so you can post to those support forums.

  6. Thanks, I'll check it out.

  7. That's the correct support forum for you and you're welcome.
