How To Post Videos on WordPress


The Minister of MOM recently had an issue trying to post video to our beloved new site so I thought I would make a quick write-up for all ministers:

  1. Copy the embed code from your Youtubes, Vimeos, YouJizzes
  2. Start or finish writing your post
  3. In the Add New Post screen, look for the Visual and HTML tab to the right of the post entry area
  4. Click the HTML button, don’t be scared of any of the weird symbols
  5. Put your cursor where you want the video, typically above or below the post text
  6. Hit return and move your cursor to the empty line
  7. Paste the video code
  8. Now you can click Visual again to see your regular post or click Publish if you’re done with your post.
  9. Sit back and wait for the comments to pour in on your hilarious video post.

    Awwww, i started the video at work, turned it off cause the ‘Smells like teen spirit’ was arousing suspicion, and then just came back to it, and you tube yanked it. It was ‘very unusual coreography’ though.

    “…very unusual choreography.”
