I have read the FAQ'S and watched the video regarding uploading a video from You Tube. However, I uploaded one according to directions, but it still has the "html"(?) characters on either side of the name. I don't think they should be there but I'm a real novice at this and am afraid to remove them! I want to upload more videos, but need to know the answer to this before I proceed!

As always, thank you so much for your assistance, and especially your patience!

Hi Lynn,

The code was in the main view of the editor. With any third party embedded object like youtube videos you need to enter then in the Source view. There is a Source button (first button on the top left of the editor) that changes the view to a source code view. Before I click that button I usually go the the area on the page where I want to place the object visually and add a string of 8's 88888888888888 so I can place the code exactly where I want it once I go into Source view. Then I click on Source and find the string of 8's and replace it with the code

I went ahead and did that for you on the Harken Back page.
