[resolved] embed youtube video in widget? (2 posts)

    Is it possible to embed a YouTube video in the widget? When we enter just the video URL we get the URL displayed in the widget space. If we use an embed code which works in the body of the page, we get nothing in the widget space. The embed code we tested is like this:

    [embed width="300"]http://youtu.be/aaNBmVw0t4Y?rel=0[/embed]

    Should this work in the Advanced Text Widget, or do we need to look for another solution?

    It appears that the [embed] shortcode is treated differently by the WordPress from all the other shortcodes. I added a support for it and it seem to be working now. Try version 2.0.6
