I have a post on my main post page which says “heres a cool video” and then the video. My problem is that on my main post page it does not show the video. I’ve went into settings and reading and checked the box to show full post but the video (from you tube) still is not showing. Can someone please help me?? I’m sure there is something obvious that I’m missing. Thank you The blog I need help with is pinkertonslife.wordpress.com.
