But I’m not sure where to access the HTML for individual pages. I have created a “Video” page for my site, but can’t figure out how to resize embeds from YouTube. The usual dimensions I use for my blog (which is not a WP blog) are 345 (width) and 244 (height); this results in a properly un-obstrusive “thumbnail” embed that can be made bigger if the reader wants, but it also allows for several videos on a page, which is what I’d like to do here.
Is this possible on Startup WP? I should note I’m using the free version of the theme.
So when editing a page or post you’re probably going to be in Visual mode by default. Look top-right just above the editor textarea and you’ll see the button to switch to Text mode, which is essentially the HTML editor mode.
One thing I’d note to those who read this: the “video code” referred to is the full embed code from YouTube (in which you should also make your preferred width and height adjustments; at least I did). Plus, I was initially using an old IE build, which is NOT gonna do it (at least it wouldn’t for me) — Firefox did it wonderfully.
