Embedding a youtube video in WordPress is as simple as just pasting in the link to the video in your editor. There’s also a oembed specific field type in ACF if you want the frontend form to just have a single inputfield specifically for a youtube link (or any other oembed compatible url like twitter, vimeo etc)
I think I’ve got the same problem as ngtrian.
Somehow I’m not able to embed a video in a front-end form.
In the back-end it works fine, but in the front-end it shows the link.
Ive also tried it by clicking the “Add Media” button, but in this case it shows the link within the [embed] [/embed] tags.
Is there something that I’m missing with creating the acf-form?
I’m using the following code:
$options = array( /* (int|string) The post ID to load data from and save data to. Defaults to the current post ID. Can also be set to 'new_post' to create a new post on submit */ 'post_id' => 'new_post', 'form_attributes' => array( // attributes will be added to the form element 'class' => '' ), /* (array) An array of post data used to create a post. See wp_insert_post for available parameters. The above 'post_id' setting must contain a value of 'new_post' */ 'new_post' => array( 'post_type' => 'odin_page', // This is my own created post type. 'post_status' => 'publish' ), /* (boolean) Whether or not to show the post title text field. Defaults to false */ 'post_title' => true, /* (boolean) Whether or not to show the post content editor field. Defaults to false */ 'post_content' => true, /* (boolean) Whether or not to create a form element. Useful when a adding to an existing form. Defaults to true */ 'form' => false ); acf_form($options);
Thanks for your help!
I think what’s happening here is that since WordPress does not load the automatic oembed detection/conversion scripts in frontend you wont see the “transformed” video from pasting an URL.
I’ll assign @elliot to this issue to see if there’s anything that can be done.
He’s rather busy tho so it might take a while to get a response.
