how do you insert YouTube videos in a post?

Looks to me that the folks here at WA have your question covered.

hi, just wondering... do we have the right to share other people's youtube video in our website?

I would say yes. They have an embed link for that very reason. Also, when you embed a link onto your website you are giving the other person traffic. That's the entire purpose of YouTube.

Keep in mind you aren't claimimg it as your own. You're just using it to supplement your information, and perhaps share something you like.

Thanks for answering! :)

Can you take a screenshot of what you see on the youtube channel and put it above in your question?

This is the post: http://findingthedoor.com/help-with-low-self-esteem
I think it is better this way...using the url instead. This way I will not need to install another plugin.
Thanks,
James

Does it work when you put this code in your textarea? <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/EzQQOMW3DQM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Been wondering but I don't think I'm there in my training. Great question!

no idea

I did that on my site yesterday for the first time and it was pretty easy. The url is on the Youtube page (address bar or in a link box under the video). Simply Copy & paste it into a blog post. If it is part of an article, above the post box is an icon that looks like a chain - click on it and add the url there. If I can do it - you can too :)
I'm sure Marion's tutorial has much better detail. Just wanted you to know it's not difficult.

That is what I eventually have done. I have had websites in the past using the embedded code. Do it that way put the video right in my website. This was before YouTube was purchased by Google.

Hi Marion,
I thought you had a training on it. Thanks for being always ready with an answer.
James

I wrote those posts before I qualified for writing training modules (during my first three months at WA).

it is very easy one click. Go to the address bar and copy ad paste the URL go to your website/blog ad make sure you are in html mode and paste the address, job done, it is not necessary to embed it

Thanks.....that's the answer I needed. They don't have an embed code listed on the video. All I could get was the url. I'll give it a try.
Thanks,
James

At the bottom of the video click on the "Share" tab them go to embed. Copy the HTML and then Paste it in the "Text" part of your blog post. Make sure its not the visual. Hope this helps :)

No embed code available.

What's the link to the video?

Wordpress is asking for a update on my website, but they caution to do a backup first. Are our sites backup done by Site Rubix? Do I need to do a separate backup?

James

Welshy has a great tutorial on Dropbox, or you can install WP backit up plugin for free

You can also use this https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/backup-wordpress-to-dropbox-tutorial which is also recommended by Kyle!

Training from Kyle https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/how-to-back-up-your-wordpress-site-using-tools-export

Like Kristy I also use WP Database Backup. :)

Thanks Kathy,
You are always a life saver....and always there. Much appreciated!
James

You're welcome. :)

I think WA does back things up, but most people recommend a plugin. I use WP Database Backup and it's worked well.

Thank you

In reading the WP info they suggest 3 separate backups. I wonder if that is redundant or definitely needed.

Maybe this is something for the support team at Site Rubix.

Wow, 3 seems redundantly redundant!

Hi James. I like WP Clone amongst others. Just search under plugins and install. After you have activated the plugin, you will find it close to the bottom in your left margin menu. After that it is just one click backup and one click restore.

Have fun.

Thank you.
