    I tried clicking on the add media button and did the “insert URL” and all it does is insert a hyperlink. I also tried pasting the youtube URL into the text editor on a page and it just shows up as a non link???

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks, Joe

    That’s what I did but it did not work. I did figure it out though, it needs to be the youtube “Old Embed”

    What is that?

    Are you using visual editor or text editor?

    Using the text editor I put in the url from youtube and after saving and looking at the website the link just appears as text. I am able to get it to work with the old embed so I am ok for now
