Can someone please tell me how to post a YouTube video to my RapidWeaver blog? Can I post a YouTube video to any other RapidWeaver page besides blog pages? Can I have multiple YouTube videos playing in the same area?

Chapter 1: Adding YouTube videos


You can post YouTube videos on all pages, not only blogs

1.1 How to add the videos


1. Let's say you want to add the following video to your RapidWeaver webpage
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuoTuL1we_c

2. Copy the "Embed" you find on the right of the video you chose. For the video I chose it is:

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/BuoTuL1we_c&rel=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/BuoTuL1we_c&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>



3. Go to RapidWeaver and the page you want to post the video to (any page you want)

4. Paste the code you copied from the YouTube site (the whole code you find under Embed)
where you want it to display

5. Once you added the code to RapidWeaver select it and go to "Format", "HTML" choose "Code". Publish the page and you’re done.

6. Done, you will see the video appearing in Preview

1.2 Example


Here’s how it will look on your page (Katie Melua - Spider ‘s web)
