In this video I’m going to show you how to add a video from YouTube into one of your WordPress widgets. You might want to do it to showcase your own work or your favourite videos in the sidebar. Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t support iFrame embed codes (for security reasons), which you’d normally copy and paste to your text widget. However, there’s an equally simple, if slightly hidden way of doing it. It took me the best part of today searching through forums, YouTube and WordPress support to find the answer. To save you time, here it is, distilled into a 4 minute video.
Don’t forget that all our podcasts are also available on a number of music services, and the videos are on our YouTube channel. Just click on one of the logos below to be redirected the service. If you enjoyed one of the episodes, we would appreciate if you rated it or left a comment.
