Quick way to embed video on your WordPress blog

Underneath your video on YouTube, you should see a “share” tab. Click on “embed”. It will give you a chunk of code. You don’t need to understand that code in any way…just copy it.

Go to your blog post you are working on in WordPress. You will see two little tabs on the upper-right side of the text box where you are typing. It will default to “visual” but click on “text.” Simply paste that embed text anywhere you want it, and boom, this should work. You can hit “preview” to see if it worked right before you actually publish the post.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your
    post seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure
    if this is a formatting issue or something to do
    with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post
    to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem
    solved soon. Thanks
