Embed using Share

You may notice a Share icon displayed on social media content. Sharing is another way of embedding third-party content on your site.

This example uses a YouTube video:

  • Pause the video at the point you want to start it on your site
  • Select Share and check the box for Start at, as required:

  •  Choose Embed:

  • Copy the script
  • Add a WYSIWYG and paste the copied script into Source:

 You will see the iFrame in the non-source view:

  • Save a draft and check the embedded content is working as expected. 

This is how it displays on the draft page:
