Am I barmy – hee hee…

Hi All,

I’ve been off  the blog-train for a bit, but see that now there’s a new interface for the editor… however, I cannot figure out how to post YouTube content. I switched to “Classic Mode” (and promptly lost my post – boo hoo)…and I used that to put in the URL for my video in yesterday’s post, but alas, on some browsers it just shows up as a link instead of a video.  Does anyone know what’s going on? Is that feature no longer available on the free version of WordPress?

Any insight would be fabbo or just ducky!

    Huh? What changes? I never pay attention. Maybe none of my posts ever go out…no, not true. I had a couple of likes.

  2. WordPress head honcho: Everything working well?
    WP techs: Yes – except for the last few changes we made, but its okay
    WP Head Honcho: Well don’t just sit there, CHANGE IT AGAIN.

    Note: I can post youtube vids but cannot copy / paste anything into the post now. So much for writing my first draft in Word.

    I dislike the new editor! It formats funny, loses edits and I can’t seem to find the relevant links anymore.

    I’m afraid it’s a step backwards…. Matt!!!

    I usually just use the embed code and bob’s your uncle.

    I don’t know if it’s free — I paid for the privilege way back when — but if you go into the Ad media tab and click on the thing that says “From YouTube” you can search YouTube for the video you already have the link to …and then you check the box and insert it. Of course there have been times when I couldn’t find the video for which I already knew the link …

    Still works as far as I know. I quit using the new editor last week, though. It ate a post and I was done with it.

    OK. I thought it was just me. They can’t help themselves on the tweaking here, can they?

    Who knows, it’s been all sixes and sevens on here recently with the WP features.
