The shortcode for youtube embed does not work.  It doesnt show up on the feature slider. 

See attached screenshot of settings and shortcode.

Hi,

 

The Shortcode wasn't designed to work in the Feature HTML area, as shortcodes are not HTML. The responsive video shortcode will work in posts/pages/contentboxes and most of the sections on PageLines. But that Feature options requires HTML and shortcodes are not HTML code.

 

Therefore, if you require a YouTube video in your Feature slider, you will need to use the embed code that YouTube provides.

Hi there, I thought I'd join this thread rather than start a new one - is that OK? I don't have exactly the same issue, so if it's not relevant then let me know and I'll shift it to a new thread. 

For about a month I haven't been able to embed any Youtube videos at all - the embed codes just seem to "disappear" from the post once it publishes. I've tried Youtube plugins, using the shortcode, everything. Yesterday I purchased the Pagelines Youtube plugin but that doesn't seem to let me drop a video within a post - it works as a drag and drop section. I'm at the end of my tether as Youtube vids are a huge part of what I do - if I can't solve it I'm going to have to move to a different theme that's non pagelines but don't really want to as I've paid up quite a bit for this one! Any ideas? Website is

It doesnt work with either shortcodes or embeds.   I did it both ways.   Here is the code I placed in the HTML section:

 

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="

Still does not work.

These are not related to the original issue posted by the topic creator. Therefore, please create a new topic regarding your issue.

 

FYI, the embed code for Features does indeed work.
