Embedding videos and other media

In order to embed youtube videos, follow these steps. For other types of embeddable content such as PayPal buttons, the process should be quite similar.

  1. Go to the youtube video page. The page URL will be something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RhEPK2dik0
  2. Click the "Embed" button.
  3. Uncheck the "Include related videos" box
  4. Type "520" into the custom width box
  5. Copy the code from the box, which should look something like this: <iframe title="YouTube video player" width="520" height="349" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/oHg5SJYRHA0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  6. Edit the article you want to insert the video into.
  7. Click "Toggle Editor" under the editing box to display the HTML code.
  8. Find the place you want to add the article to, and paste the HTML code there.
  9. Save the article and check that the video works properly
