Anyway, my Youtube videos are not showing up in my blog. They only appear as links. Please help. Thanks! The blog I need help with is lenasaywhat.wordpress.com. August 3, 2011 at 9:18 pm #671532 thesacredpathStaff You have to use the wordpress.com youtube shortcode to display youtube videos here. August 3, 2011 at 9:19 pm #671533 thesacredpathStaff We also need a link to the site you are talking about. The site linked to your username has been deleted. August 4, 2011 at 5:16 pm #671641 goodgroundpressMember I noticed in “support” that it needs to have “watch” in the link. However, when I try to put in a video from a channel, like the UN’s (http://www.youtube.com/user/unitednations#p/u/5/vW6jvIFnyY8), which doesn’t have “watch” in the URL, it doesn’t work. Help!
