Media from sites like YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud, and Prezi can be embedded into pages and posts on your Expressions site.

Embedding Media into Pages and Posts

  1. Login to your Expressions site and go to the Dashboard.
  2. Depending on where you want your embedded media to show, either click on Pages or Posts.
  3. Either create a new page or post, or edit an existing one.
  4. In the upper right side of your editor, click on the Text tab.
  5. Place your cursor wherever you would like your media to appear.
  6. Now you'll need to get the embed code from the website where the media is. Most websites have a "Share" option, giving you a choice of copying a web link or an embed code. To embed media in your Expressions site, you'll need to copy the embed code. Below are a few examples of where you can find the embed code on different websites:
    1. YouTube

    2. Vimeo

    3. SoundCloud

  7. After you copy the embed code, go to your Expressions page or post, and make sure you are still in the Text area.
  8. Paste the embed code into this area.
  9. Save your changes, and go to the public side of your site to make sure your media embedded correctly.
