I tried to follow the posted instructions on how to embed a video into a page and neither the copied embedded code nor the direct url link worked. I'm using boldgrid.

Hello happycamper, and thanks for the question.

I'm glad to see you were already able to find the guide we had on how to embed a YouTube video in the Builder.

It seems like you might have missed the first step needed, which is going to YouTube for the video you'd like to embed, clicking on the Share tab below the video, and then clicking on the Embed link to grab the correct URL format, so the video can be remotely embedded into your page.

It looks like you were also missing the opening less than symbol < in the iframe code. So that's why the code was just displaying on the page in plain-text. Here you can see the changes I made for you:

Before:

iframe width="600" height="300" src="

" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

After:

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/ style="color: red;">embed/gwbcNIRnWYE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>

I'll also be sure that article gets updated to point out a bit more clearly that you need to get the correct Embed URL from YouTube for it to properly work.

Please let us know if you have any further questions at all.
