    How do I add a video or embed a tweet to a blog.

    I spoke with the online chat support about adding a video to a blog and they said I cannot. I find this unbelievable. I am currently operating a sports blog so embedding videos and tweets is crucial. How do I do this. Thanks.

    Hey there @geno8771,

     

    In this circumstance, the CSR you spoke with was correct. The blogging feature on GoCentral is still fairly new and they are constantly developing new features, but embedding videos and tweets into the blog posts is not a functionality that is available yet. It is on the drawing board, from what I understand.

     

    If that functionality is required at this moment, you'd be better off on a CMS like WordPress.

    I find this absolutely absurd. This website is VERY LIMITING. What a disappointment GoDaddy! 

    This is frustration I can't use disqus, I can't embed tweets, really what the heck am I paying for?

    Has this been updated by chance to anyones knowledge?  I find this pretty crazy, for a company that hosts websites, the inability to embed a GIF or video being not possible.  I also created a site for blogging, but if something so simple doesn't work, I'll be switching to wordpress for half the price.  

     

     

    Hi @ajcasey1. Thanks for posting and sharing your thoughts with the GoDaddy Community. 

     

    Our product development team is aware that this is being asked for in the GoCentral Website Builder, but we do not have an ETA as to when this would be available. I recommend looking into our Managed WordPress hosting as you would have these capabilities with your blog.
