…one man's contribution to the Weeeeerly Wild World

WordPress and Youtube

It doesn’t work for me straight out of the box.

I click on the Add Media button on the Add New Post page, select Insert Youtube, paste in the video’s URL, it displays some previews, I select the one I want… when I go to Publish, and then view my Post… nothing – the video isn’t there.

I have to manually fix it. Here is how:


Edit the post in Text view.

Find where the Youtube url is (CTRL+F will help sift through the code), and add in “” after it.

That is until the WordPress team get around to fixing it so it just works.
