Embed utube video?
I found the bar with all the media options, but when I put a youtube url in it just makes it a link.
I also tried a self edit with the outer brackets, but this too just shows up as text.
Here’s the coding. You have to go into the Coding mode of the post.
I had problems with it too
[youtube=http://PUT THE YOUTUBE LINK HERE]
Not working still. I went into html tab, and did the advised above, clicked on preview and only text is showing.
Can you show the code?
I’ll take a look again at mine …
Youtube shortcodes should work exactly as before.
Ok, when comparing the code to previously embeded video the html view font appears slightly larger (more spread out) than looking under “visual.”
I have tried a series of different things.
I began with the new button (this just creates a hyperlink to youtube)
I tried to put the “embed” link from youtube in with the new video button, no go
I tried to go straight to html, and add [ ] around the page of the video – with youtube=(my video page was inserted here) – as seen above
(I just added spaces in the w’s , the closed full link is what I’ve been trying to put on the blog)
That’s odd. I just tried your YouTube link (after closing the space). I hit Preview and was able to play the vid (PhotoShop music vid of a large woman being un-larged).
Did the same thing and the video showed up also.
It’s a conspiracy against me! LOL
I believe you all. I’ll keep putzing with it I guess.
I’ll check back here in a bit.
Oh, now it’s working.
Don’t be running away with the magic wand. I’m sure I’ll have some other issue shortly;)
Just so you know, preview would not show the video. I had to republish and view the site to see it.
