Using the shortcode in a template
I’m trying to display a Youtube video on the front page of a site that utilises the front-page.php file and so for the time being is a template. Can you tell me what syntax I should use to achieve this? I’ve been trying to use
<?php echo do_shortcode('[embed_youtube src="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJ0E3aqGbIU&noredirect=1" width="340" height="220" class="youtube" id="youtube"]'); ?>but no video displays although the container is present.
I am hoping to use custom fields in the future so that I don’t have to update this page for my client, but that will also require the use of the do_shortcode. Would the code remain the same.
Also, when this is output, the iframe has an allowfullscreen appended to it, is there a way to prevent this? In fact is there a list of other parameters that can be used?
Thanks for any help you can give.
