    Please forgive me if I’m asking a much-answered question. I’ve searched the forums but can’t find this info.

    If I were to invite my visitors to embed You Tube videos in their comments, would they be able to? And, if so, should they use the “embed” code?

    Thanks.

    I’m fairly certain it can’t be done. The html allowed in comments is very limited.

    No, they wouldn’t be able to unless the template supports code in the comments and even I have my doubts that the “embed” code would work.

    No themes here at WP.com support video or images in the comments. The best you can do is leave a link.

    Thanks, everyone. Back to the drawing board. :)

    And thank you for the heads-up on addthis, justjenifer!
