Insert a video into a post

  1. Find the Video on the Platform:
    • If your video is hosted on a platform like YouTube or Vimeo, locate the video you want to embed.
  2. Copy the Embed Code:
    • On YouTube, click the “Share” button below the video, then select “Embed.” Copy the provided code.
  3. Go to Your WordPress Post/Page:
    • In the WordPress editor, create a new post or edit an existing one.
  4. Switch to HTML Editor (Optional):
    • If you’re using the new block editor, you can paste the embed code directly into a “Custom HTML” block. If you’re using the classic editor, switch to the “Text” tab instead of the “Visual” tab.
  5. Paste the Embed Code:
    • Paste the copied embed code where you want the video to appear in your post/page.
  6. Switch Back to Visual Editor (Optional):
    • If you switched to the HTML editor, switch back to the Visual editor to see a preview of your video.
  7. Preview or Publish:
    • Preview your post/page to ensure the video appears correctly. If satisfied, publish or update your content.
