CMS developer nz | Custom Development NZ | wordpress design nz

When it comes to websites content, video and media are some of the best ways to keep your audience engaged and to spend longer interacting with the content on your page, often you will find that your website may become rather large if you’re posting videos directly from your WordPress dashboard. Fortunately adding a video is a simple task that most novice content creators and web admins can do on their own.

Follow our quick tutorial below, and learn how to Embed simple media like Youtube into your articles. If you need a hand, please get in touch to see if Embed Web Design can manage your website content for you.

Step 1.

Your first step is to find a video that you’d like to Embed, if you have a youtube channel, navigate to the video you wish to Embed onto your website.
Down by the title of the video, on the right of the screen, you will see the options to Thumbs up, Thumbs Down, share, save, or 3 dots. Click the Share button.

Step 2.

Once you have clicked the share button, a popup window should appear, you are going to want to select the “Embed” button.

This will then pop up a second window where you can copy the Embed code to your clipboard. With this code you can also adjust the height and width of the video, the video will attempt to maintain aspect ratio when being inserted into your page, so making it too large may add unnecessary black space to your page. I recommend using 100% for width and 450px-600px for height.

Step 3.

Once you have the Embed code, go to your WordPress page/post, and click either select the post you want to edit or click Add New to create a new post.

Inside your post click the “Text” part of your editor (if you’re using classic editor) and paste it into your editor. Once that’s done, you have successfully Embedded a Youtube video into your WordPress website if you click “Visual” or publish/update. your video will appear in the position you’ve added it.

If you want to put your video in a location where your editor cant publish, get in touch, and Embed will help you Embed directly to your template.


Results-Based Difference with

Happy Customers

Dolphinz Swim School had an existing Joomla-based website that needed a refresh and various security updates. Brett is one of the few Joomla website builders that we could find. He was able to get our website up to date without having to do a full rebuild and all the time and money associated with that. He provided a cost-effective solution for our business and understood our needs well. We would recommend Brett's skills and service to any business that needs website support.

We are in the business of Engineering Services, for the Food Manufacturing sector, when it came time to advertise our brand online we engaged Brett Ransley to guide us through the inner workings, of the world wide web. It was important to me that the website reflected our workmanship, and I couldn't be happier! Brett really took the time to get to know us and understand our business and brand, once the website was launched he continued to tweak and edit the content to set a standard we were all proud of, he has continued to support us over the years and often provides updates and suggestions as new technologies and software becomes available, this keeps our page looking Clean and Fresh, reflecting on our food manufacturing & engineering standards. I would recommend Brett Ransley, to any business. Thanks, Brett.

Brett created a simple straightforward solution for us, using Magento, despite the limited amount of products we were still able to create online sales & integrate our eShip plugin. Early 2021 we changed our systems to WooCommerce & WordPress, Embed managed to launch the website in under 1 week and we had our first order the day of launch! Great work!
