Due to my lack of WP knowledge, I’m having a hard time getting all features to work right for me. As a reference, i have “Using WordPress” by Triss Hussey. I think it is based on a 2.9 version of WP. So that might be part of the problem.
Okay, part of the problem is solved. I was not removing the hyperlink, now the video works, and i assume other media will also.
However, i still cant resize the video in the post. I think earlier versions had an Embed Media Button in the POST editor that allowed you to resize embedded media. I do not see it in Version 3.3.2. So how do u resize embedded media in a post?
