    Hiya! Love this theme. My site is http://www.kristysimchick.com - I'm trying to embed a youtube video but seem to be having some trouble - do I just put the embed code in the body where I write the text? That's what I did, but it's just showing up as text in the preview... I don't know css so if you could let me know as simply as possible that would be awesome.

    All you have to do is put the youtube url and not the embed code. Take a look at this: https://i.cloudup.com/stuiGrAXvB.gif

    It's not working and is just showing the link on the post. Perhaps because I'm putting it in Post instead of Page? But I want it to be embedded in a blog post and not a page. :/ Any other troubleshooting ideas?

    Many thanks,
    Kristy

    Try this: https://i.cloudup.com/xAtvISPnyr.gif

    Basically, paste the embed code on the "Text" view.
