I'm trying to insert a youtube playlist into a page using the following code

<iframe width="853" heigh![t="480" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=<ID-REMOVED>&amp;hl=en_US" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe][1]>

for some reason, even when the ID is there, it comes out like this

Sorry about the text, it's by the client. Never really worked with wordpress before. I don't see a place to insert code or anything. Wat do?

I think this answers your question, the WordPress automatic paragraph input is messing up the raw html

Placing google maps into a wordpress page using the wordpress page editor


If you are trying to embed a youTube video you can just paste the link directly in the editor. For example, pasting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ in the editor will automatically embed the video on the page.

Here is more info on embeds.


You are placing the HTML as visual whereas you should input under the Text fieldenter image description here
