Post subject Embed a video in my club's homepagePosted 09 Jan 18, 19:49
I've found a video that gives an overview of Toastmasters. I'd like to post it on my club's e-s homepage but don't see a checkbox for that. Am I to assume it isn't possible to do this with e-s? If not, how do I put the video on the page?

You can add embedded video - use the icon on the editor button bar 'insert/edit embedded media'
But I would NOT do that on the home page which you want to be short, brief and to load quickly
It's best never to have more on a page than can be read without the user having to scroll - most people won't bother and Googlebot will mark you down. In particular, the front page needs to be short, snappy, and load quickly so it's a bad move to include video, maps or a contact form on it. Use it to attract their attention and lead them to content on other pages
You have multiple pages to work with. You can also add pages if you need

I think I'm missing something here. I know what button you're talking about (with 2 grayed-out buttons between the smiles button and insert/ edit embedded media), but I don't see it when I'm editing a page that I created. I want this video to be visible to the public and I don't see how to make a page that has access to this button.

Thanks for the detailed answer, but it seems I've failed to make myself clear.
When I am making a new page I can't see the menu that has the "insert/ edit media" button. Nor do I see the accompanying buttons for (for example) "bold," or "copy," or any of the other buttons immediately above the text box I'm presently using. Is there a way to activate this menu when I am editing a page?
