I have a YouTube video on a site's homepage, but when viewing the site as an unknown / non-logged-in user, it's NOT showing up at all.

And when viewing in admin / a logged-in WP user of the site, it DOES show up.

What could be causing this? Other than using some 3rd party theme / plugins, is there any built-in Wordpress functionality that could be causing this issue?

Here's how I'm embedding the video on the page:

<iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/8D0pwUeody4"

And here's the site in question: http://www.canadiancooperator.coop/en/

I'll continue to look in the theme's / plugins' settings just to be sure I haven't overlooked anything, but if this is a known issue please let me know.


Things I've checked:

  • Tested on different browsers (Chrome [+ incognito], Internet Explorer).
  • Disabled AdBlock on domain / altogether.
  • Tried the [embed ...]youtube.com/...[/embed] approach - didn't show on both.

Regarding the Theme and Plugins used that may have something to do with this:

  • Theme is: Vantage (Premium) by SiteOrigin (Version: 2.4.4).
  • Plugin: Page Builder by SiteOrigin (Homepage uses a SiteOrigin Editor with the above <iframe> code).

Edit 2: It could very well be something to do with the SiteOrigin theme / plugin, I've tested a new posts in plain HTML (instead of using the Page Builder tool) and sure enough it displays the iframe/youtube video in incognito tabs fine now.


Apparently only using the youtube URL in the SiteOrigin Editor is enough:



That being said, this means you can't configure anything on the youtube container (width, height, allowing fullscreen, etc.)

  • That is enough because WordPress auto-embed feature, no because SiteOrigen plugin.
