[Resolved] the_excerpt with youtube embed files

  • Does anyone have a good solution for video bloggers that want to use the_excerpt but also want their videos show up on the front page without the_excerpt stripping out the embed?

    Have you tried using the optional Excerpt field on the Edit Post page?

    After doing a little bit of research earlier today I found that Advanced Excerpt works well.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-excerpt/

    I enabled <param> and <object> which allows it to be pulled onto the front page if you use the_advanced_excerpt() – I hate making themes plugin dependent but it’s a quick solution.

    I also had to make adjustments to the style.css file to style it up.
