Soon we'll be adding the ability for you to embed videos (eg. from Youtube, Vimeo, etc) and maps (eg. Google maps, Bing maps) to the pages of your website.

If you need this feature now, please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we'll activate this feature on your website as a priority, for free.

Once we've enabled this feature on your websites, here's how to use it!:

1. First you need to look at the Youtube Video or Google map you want to embed and find the "Embed Code", which looks something like this:

2. Now go to edit the page or your website that you'd like to add the video/map to, and click on the 'Edit HTML Source' button in the text editor, which looks like this:

3. A window will pop up showing the HTML Source of your page, something like this:

4. This is where you'll need to paste your Embed code. If you're page is simple, like the one above, you can paste the embed code in the appropriate place on the page.

But don't worry if there is lots of HTML code and you can't see the place on the page where you want to put the video/map, just paste the code at the very top (before all the HTML code!) and you can move it later.

5. Once you've pasted your Embed code, like this:

Click the green "Update" button at the bottom of the HTML window.

6. You'll now see a placeholder for your video or map along with the rest of the text etc on your page. When you save the page, check the page on the front end of the website and your Video or Map will display in the position of the placeholder! You can re-size the box to fit nicely on your page, or click and drag it to move it further down your page:

For extra options, such as flowing text around your map, click on the grey placeholer and then click on the "iframe" icon in the text editor buttons:
