How to align YouTube videos and other services with text in WordPress

Insert videos from YouTube and other services is very simple in WordPress you just have to copy the URL and they are activated automatically, they become in its player, the problem that I want to deal with today is that they occupy the whole width of the content, and sometimes we would like it to be integrated, with the text floating around just as we can do with the images. [19659003] And I'm not talking about videos always being aligned right or left with the text around, that would be easy with a bit of CSS, but decide on a specific entry if a video is on the right or left, with the text floating around .

Well, the solution is not to use the oEmbed feature that allows you to show the player just by copying and pasting the URL of the video, but using the code or iframe that we also usually offer these services and that at least YouTube does offer.

To do this, for example on YouTube, click on " Share "

Instead of sharing now, click on the link" Insert ":

What you get open a window where we already have the code iframe to insert :

In your WordPress editor switch to the HTML tab and paste where you want the code to appear iframe .

The code will look something like this:

Well, the trick is to modify that code iframe The first thing is to remove the width and height parameters ( widht and height ), then we will add the following:

With what the code would look like this:

If you notice, we have indicated that the width occupies only 50% of the available block and, this time , we have indicated that the video is placed on the right ( float: right ) of the content.

Do you want it to be on the left, because it just changes right by ] Do you want the video a bit bigger or smaller? Change the width percentage.

What we got is exactly what you are seeing here on the right, which the video is to the right of the text, and it surrounds it by its left .

It is the same as we could do with an image, defining its alignment with respect to the text, but in this case a tad more complicated, modifying these parameters in the same code.

And that's it, that you align it well, I hope you liked the trick ito.

See Word, Excel, Powerpoint and PDF documents on your website

 viewer office online

A WordPress you can upload any type of Word file, Excel, Powerpoint or PDF files and then link them so that your visitors can see or download them but and if we offer to see them directly on our website?

I do not mean offer a link to the Google Docs previewer which we already saw it, but directly embed the document on our website, within an entry or page.

There are several ways to get it, and one of the most immediate is using Google Drive technology specifically its preview script, to do it. The process is very simple.

Open your function plugin or file functions.php and add the following code:

The only thing you have to customize for this code are the parameters widht and height so that they fit the width of your WordPress theme, which in the example are set to 550 and 650, those of my personal blog .

With this step we have created a shortcode which we can use in our WordPress editor to show – embedded – all the document formats that the Google Drive viewer can display that is: PDF, DOC, XLS, PPT, PPS, etc.

To display a document we just have to use the shortcode in this way:

[verdoc href=""]

And what we get is that our visitors can see directly and l document on our website …

 see document embedded in wordpress

Yes, I know, some are already thinking about that " Vale Fernando, it's cool but Is not there a plugin that does the same ?, that makes me want to touch code ".

Well yes, for the more miedicas there is a super plugin called Google doc embedder that comes to do the same.

As in the previous code, it offers a shortcode in this case of type [gview href=""]but to make things easier you also have a button on the visual editor that makes it even easier to use.

NOTICE : this publication is from two years ago or more. If it's a code or a plugin it might not work in the latest versions of WordPress, and if it's a news story it might be obsolete. Then do not say we have not warned you.
