Video - Using Embed Codes

Having rich content like videos is a really effective way of engaging with visitors to your site. We've made it really easy to enrich your pages of content with this media using what we call embed codes. They are short codes used to embed the rich content inside of your text.

There are 2 different ways of including video
vimeo: (A video hosted on vimeo)
youtube: (A video hosted on youtube)

Here is an example video embed code {youtube:Km0zLsaTsE}

In the editor the embed is shown, on the front end of the site the corresponding media will be displayed.

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.

YouTube or Vimeo.

For YouTube and Vimeo videos, the video must first be uploaded the their platform. Then 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).
