Urgent video help

  • Author

    I purchased the video upgrade and have added a video to my media library. The video is there in the library, and plays perfectly.

    But when I try to paste the short code onto a page I’ve created, it’s not working. Every time I click the play button, it opens up the *image* that has been inserted above the video (?). I can’t figure out why this is happening.

    Help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you so much!

    The blog I need help with is theunfashionistadiaries.com.



    Can you please give us a link to the post or page displaying the problem?


    Yes :) here it is:


    I’ve even tried to insert a YouTube link but that’s not working the way it should either :/ really confused…

    Thank you! :)



    Looks to me like you left the Image tag unclosed. First, go to your Settings->General and select the tickbox that says “WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML” make sure it’s ticked. Save that and then go edit that post. Doesn’t matter what you do, just change a comma to a period or whatever and then hit Update. That should close that tag and prevent this problem from happening in future.


    Thank you for the quick reply! I don’t seem to have that tick box in my settings-general though… :S


    You have enclosed the video in code and bold tags, and made the whole thing link to this image:

    Switch the page editor to HTML, delete everything below the youtube video link, and just paste the shortcode for your video:
    [wpvideo 9z74UHKm]

    By the way, the option raincoaster mentioned is in Settings > Writing.



    Thank you SO much!!!



    By the way, gorgeous blog.

    And yes, panos is right. I always get it wrong, but it’s very important to tick that box.


    Thank you!! Glad you liked it! It’s not really active yet but will let you know when it is- should be soon, now that all these lil problems are getting sorted out! :)

    I will be sure to fix that…
