  • I know how to put a video on a blog page…

    How do I add text so that it shows up NEXT to the
    video… not underneath it?

    I have created the info as a jpg but would prefer
    to just be able to type it in and have the two
    show up side by side…

    The video is 420 wide so there’s a ton of room
    on the page…

    I do not have sidebars and the page is 920 wide
    Using Flexibility 3 theme

  • You can use div tags to float the video left or right

    <div style= “float: right;>video here</div>text here

    so, is it as simple as putting that code into the post
    and inserting the youtube embedded code

    <div style= “float: right;><iframe width=”420″ height=”315″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/Lhbhic0bHgY?rel=0″ frameborder=”0” allowfullscreen></iframe></div>then, enter my paragraph over here…. do I have to do anything else???

    I just tried this and the video didn’t show up… the text floated left which was fine…

    Thank you kindly for your help 🙂

    Instead of using Iframe install this plugin
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/vipers-video-quicktags/

    and then you will be able use shortcodes for videos

    <div style= “float: right;>[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lhbhic0bHgY[/youtube]</div>Your text here

    You are BRILLIANT!!!!

    Thank you so much your directions worked
    Big hugs to you
