    i have read the little ‘uploading youtube tutorial’ on the ‘write post page’, but when i put the URL in between [youtube= and ], and then click ‘upload’ nothing happens! The upload button won’t click properly and it is impossible to save or publish the thing. Does anyone know hwere i’m going wrong?

    If the Upload button itself won’t click properly, I’d say it’s probably a WordPress problem. I’d give them a Feedback and let them know.

    Some tips:
    -make sure there aren’t any spaces between [ or = and the words.
    -make sure that you’re using the right URL; not the URL of the page neccessarily (that can be one of two or three different ones). Use the URL in the box just above the box with the Embed code. It does NOT have the word “search” in the URL, as sometimes the page URLs do. Use the one in the box.
    -make sure you can still navigate around YouTube. If you’re finding that the pages won’t load at all, and you go to pages with YouTubes in them and the videos don’t appear, your cache is full. Clear it and do a restart of the computer if you can and I always find that this solves the problem. This sometimes shows up when you’re trying to edit and then for whatever reason you can’t get the rich text editor, but have to work in HTML. Clear things out and that should fix it.

    Hope this helps.

    Um, ‘upload’? Maybe after 10+ hours of coding and Radio Disney is making me brain dead but ‘uploading’?

    You click on Publish when you’re done writing a post to make it show up on your blog. Uploading is when you are uploading a picture to your blog.

    Hope this helps,

    Sorry, I’m on cold medicine. I should have caught that.

    You just stick the whole [youtube=blahblahblah] into the text box like making a regular post and hit Publish.
