Using Embed Codes - Adding Videos, Flip books & Audio

Having rich content like videos or documents viewed as flip books or even audio files are a really effective way of engaging with visitors to your site. We've made it really easy to enrich your pages of content with these forms of media using what we call embed codes. They are short codes used to embed the rich content inside of your text.

Copy the embed code from the { to the } (including the {}) from the relevant sub menu in the media menu on the left hand side of the page (Or for galleries - under the school life menu). Paste the copied embed code into your content where you would like it to appear, and save.

When you look at the page you've added it to on the site you'll see the rich content embedded on the page.

Here is an example embed code {type:name}

The different types of embed code are listed below: (Including 3 different ways of including video)
vimeo: (A video hosted on vimeo)
youtube: (A video hosted on youtube)
video: (A .flv video file)
doc: (A flip-book document hosted on issuu)
mp3: (An audio file)
gallery: (A photo gallery)

Adding a Video



To add a new video go to the Media menu on the left hand side of the page. Select the submenu item "Videos"
Then click the green "+ Create Video" button.
A new page to add the details of your new video will appear.
Enter the title (required) and description (optional) for your video, these details are not shown on your site, they identify in the list each video you upload.

The drop down field labelled "Type" allows selection of the different types of video embed.
Upload File, YouTube & Vimeo.

If using a upload file, it can be browsed for on the local computer by clicking "Choose File" (it must be in .flv format)

If using Youtube or Vimeo the website address of the video on YouTube or Vimeo needs entering into the URL field below the type field. (This field appears when the relevant type is selected).
Click Save, and your video is added to the system.

The list of videos is then shown, the embed code for the video is shown in the row for each video. Copy this embed code and paste it into anywhere in the Schudio CMS where there is a content editor and your video will appear there.

Documents don't have to be embedded, they can also be linked to directly so they open in a full window rather than embedded. Copy the link field from the list and paste it to be the link URL (don't forget to set the target as New Window). You can see more about adding links here.
