Step One: Copy Embed Code from YouTube or Other Source

For YouTube Videos:

  1. Find the Video you want to embed, click "SHARE"
  2. Click "Embed"
  3. COPY the embed code from the box

Step Two - Paste the EMBED CODE into the SOURCE of your content editor. 

  1. In the Admin, navigate to the page you wish to place the video on
  2. Add a new Content Editor to the page or Edit an existing Item
  3. Click the "SOURCE" tab (this allows you to view or edit the content in code form)
  4. PASTE your EMBED code here

Step Three: Adjust the Size for the Embed

When adjusting the size for your embedded video, make sure that the width and height - underlined in blue in the image below - is appropriate for the area on your website in which the video will appear. "100%" for the width and "416" for the height are the preferred to have the video fit in the stack item for most pages when viewing them on desktop or mobile; however, you may have to adjust the height to something smaller if you plan to place it in the right/left column or in the columns within a three-column layout. For instance, the height can be:

  • "270" in the left/right column for a two-column layout,
  • "200" in the left/right column for a three-column layout, or
  • "315" in the middle section for a three-column layout

If you ever need to go back and adjust the width and height for your video, you can right-click your iFrame box of your video and select "iFrame Properties" to make the changes - aside from going into the "SOURCE" section to make the changes.
