WiscWeb - WordPress UW Theme - Embedding YouTube Videos

The following document will walk you through how to embed YouTube videos on Pages and Posts in WiscWeb.

Embed YouTube Videos on Pages

There are two ways in which you can embed YouTube videos on Pages: using the Embed Content Page Element or just Pasting in the URL. 

Embed Content Page Element

The Embed Content page element currently supports YouTube. For this, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to YouTube and find the video you'd like to share
  2. Copy either the URL for the video or the share link that is included just below the video
