Support » Plugin: WP Advent » Youtube & URLs

  • Hi there,

    are there any means to implement a youtube video in the calender? By just entering the URL it just ends up with the mere youtube screen without any play function.
    Thnx in advance

    I don’t quite understand the question – I just embedded a youtube video in a sheet on my test system and it worked fine.

    Are you using any plugins that might mess with the embed code?

    Thnx for the quick response.
    I also tried to embed a video as well as an ordninary link but failed. In the calendar it just prompts it as a “pic” without any function. (play resp. forward)
    So since it seems to work at yours it might obviously be an unfortunate interaction with another plugin on my site.
    Any hints to go after it?

    Thnx anyway

    I deactivated all other plugins but the embedded URLs in the advent calendar don’t forward. Not using the calendar the URLs on the site and the Youtubes are working fine. Any idea what the issue could be withe the calendar or does it need an additional plugin?

    I’m not entirely sure. You say that Youtube embeds work fine in normal posts and pages? That’d be pretty strange, because internally the calendar sheets are basically the same as those.

    Yes, xactly. normals posts do fine, the calendar just promts ist as “graphics” – No funktion at all. No clue why :/ Any editing or testing idea?

    I can’t quite reproduce that problem, sorry. Do you have it on a public webpage somewhere so I can try to see what’s going on there?

    Certainly, just try my “test-one”

    Thanks for your effort
