    Hi there,

    So far this plugin has been great. I really like how it handles Youtube channels, displaying the channel image and description.

    What would make it better, is if it could incorporate a channel subscribe button with subscriber count, similar to what can be generated using the Google tool (https://developers.google.com/youtube/youtube_subscribe_button)

    <script src="https://apis.google.com/js/platform.js"></script>
    
    <div class="g-ytsubscribe" data-channel="GoogleDevelopers" data-layout="default" data-count="default"></div>

    Would this be possible?

    Thanks!

    I can add it to the idea list, but it’s not really a priority. It’s not a YouTube specific plugin so people use it for all sorts of URLs.

    You could custom code this as part of your own link template though:

    Thanks, unfortunately I am not a coder, so custom code isn’t an option. I hope you’ll be able to support extended YouTube link features in the future. Perhaps an additional field to enter the “channel ID”? That can be used to generate the subscriber button.

    Thanks anyways!
