New You Tube Embed Code - AAAGGGHHHH

  1. Not needing help as I found a work-around.

    You Tube have changed their "Embed" again. it has an iframes html tag and produces a blank post when used as per normal WordPress protocol.

    I ended up finding an old video I had successfully posted and, cut and pasting, changed the old you tube url code (the bit after the "v=" for the new url code and that worked.

    It seems a bit long to do something that was simple but at least it is a way of getting it to work until the WordPress Wizards give us an easier way of doing it.

  2. Actually, you can now embed a YouTube video by simply pasting the URL into your post.

    See this for more info:

  3. Thankx for that. My problem is that I am extremely old and set in my ways - I missed this change when it came out :(

    Memos to self - must keep checking WP updates and must learn to change :)

  4. You're welcome!
