I'm an editor in a wordpress blog I have embedded an youtube list with this code:

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=*********&list=**************************]

I want that the plalist has the sidemenu opened by defalut. How can I achieve that?

  • Have you tried using the modern OEmbed method of just putting the URL on a line on its own? You don't need to use a shortcode to embed youtube videos

  • A quick google later and I don't believe this is either possible, or a WordPress question. What you want does not exist and will require changes to youtube.com to be possible. You will need to speak to Youtube dev support

This isn't possible, youtube doesn't provide an embed with an open playlist. If it did, this isn't something that could be resolved from the WordPress end, as it's a Youtube OEmbed issue.

You will need to refer to Youtube documentation or their support channels

  • Ok thank you for your answer.
