How To Add A YouTube Video To Your Site

Adding a YouTube video to your site is a great way of sharing additional media content to your users. You could use a video to showcase your products, or even talk more about your shop.

To add a YouTube video to your website please follow the instructions below:

  1. Log in to your Create account
  2. Click on "Content" on the Top Menu
  3. Click ‘Edit This Page’ next to the page you would like to edit
  4. Click the + icon in the bottom left-hand corner to bring up the Block Selector
  5. Select the ‘Video’ block and drag and drop it onto the desired place on the page. Before dragging it onto the page, you can click ‘Variants’ to select between various sizes of video
  6. Click the ‘Video Settings’ icon
  7. Paste the URL of your YouTube video into the ‘YouTube URL’ box
  8. Click ‘Done’ then and then ‘Save Changes’ to save your changes.

If the YouTube widget is not working

If you receive an error message (see below) on the video on your live site there will likely be something wrong with the URL inputted. Double check the YouTube URL to ensure that there are no extra characters or extensions that shouldn't be there. As a rule of thumb, anything appended after an ampersand (&) should be removed, along with the ampersand itself. You should also use the full link, rather than any shortened versions (so use youtube.com rather than youtu.be)
