Testing a YouTube link in my post



Instead of using the video icon, which is for video that you have saved to your harddrive try visiting youtube and grabbing the object embed code for the video you want to display. This code can be found to the right of the video area and is titled 'Embed'.

Once you have that code just paste it into your post 'compose' box where you would like the video to appear!

Hope this helps!

It works beautifully Christy! Congrats on your new blog. I've been blogging since Oct 07 and don't know how to imbed a YouTube image...yet! Actually it's a total wonder that I even have a blog with my lack of tech skills LOL. Cheers!
