• Videos page on your website


Adding videos

Once you’ve installed the app you can begin adding videos to your account. To add videos select Assets & Images > Videos from the menu.

All videos shown on your website must be hosted on a video hosting service, such as YouTube or Vimeo. The embedding code for the video can then be used to add the video to your account.

Use the ‘Create A New Video’ section to add the details of the video:

Enter the name for the video. Then place the embedding code for the video in the box.

Once you have finished inputting the information select create video.


Obtaining the embedding code

If you've uploaded your video to YouTube, instructions for finding the embedding code can be found here.

Please note!

YouTube does not provide embedding codes for YouTube Shorts. If you need to embed a Shorts video onto your website, you will need to replace 'shorts' in the video URL with 'watch' and then follow the instructions linked above for obtaining the embed code.

If you've uploaded your video to Vimeo, instructions for finding the embedding code can be found here.

If your video is hosted on another service, please consult their help guide to obtain the embedding code.


Managing existing videos

Videos you have already added to your account can be managed in the ‘Existing Videos’ section:

Here you can edit any of the details for the video, or you can choose to delete the video by placing a tick in the ‘Delete’ tick box. Click save changes when you are done.


Videos page on your website

The videos you add to your account will be shown on your website’s videos page. You can access your videos page through the URL www.yourdomainname.com/videos, where ‘yourdomainname’ is replaced with your actual domain name.

Your videos page, depending on your chosen theme, will look something like this:

To create a link to your video page in one of your website’s menus you will need to edit your link lists.
