    Adding video / articles to blog

    Asking for a client, is there plans to duplicate the video embed functionality to the blog section ?

    Also ability to auto populate a screenshot and metadata of another site (article) to share on the blog section?

    Hi @domokune,

     

    Yes! We definitely have plans to add the same sort of video support in the blog that is available on the website.  I don't have a timeline to share at the moment but it's definitely on the list.

     

    As for "auto populate a screenshot and metatdata of another site (article)", are you talking about being able to paste a link to an external site/article and having the image/caption/etc. show up in the blog post on your live site?  Just want to make sure I understand what you're looking for.

     

    Thanks,

    Hey @cstrasia,

     

    Thank you for the confirmation.

     

    Yes, almost like a share function on many social media. Instead of having to go and clip out images / meta data, it would auto populate the information for the poster/blogger.

     

    Thanks,

    @domokune, great, thanks for the clarification.  That functionality is already in the plan!

    Thank you, please update once the timeline becomes available.

    Re: Adding video / articles to blog

    Checking back to see when the functionality to embed a video into a godaddy blog post will be available.

    Re: Adding video / articles to blog

    Following up with others on this question. It was addressed originally in August. It is now November. This seems like it should be an easy solution. Any timeline yet?

    Hello,

     

    I still don't have a timeline for video embed in the blog but it's in the top 3 next features we're working on.  We're finishing up some work / testing on the social sharing right now.  Then the next 3 things (currently) are Commenting, Scheduling/Custom Publish Date and Video. 

     

    Thanks,

    ChristieS

    Re: Adding video / articles to blog

    All,

    Due to unforeseen circumstances our work on Commenting has been pushed out.  On the upside, this means we're currently working on being able to schedule blog posts to publish on a date in the future (and set a custom date in the past).  Once this is complete we'll be working on adding video to blog posts in the same way it's support on your website.  

     

    Once it's ready you'll be able to click the green "insert" icon in the blog manager and "video" will be included where "image" and "divider" are currently.

     

    Thanks for your continued patience.

    Hi @websergeant,

     

    We ran into a few things when we tested the custom date setting so we're working on getting that wrapped up.  As far as I know video is still planned to be next. 

     

    thanks,

    Adding video to blog is nearly finished and will be released in the very near future.

    Re: Adding video / articles to blog

    Great news!

    Re: Adding video / articles to blog

    Ambiguously vague of you to say. Thanks for the update that can be interpreted based upon each persons personal idea of what "very near future means". Why even bother with an update if you aren't going to provide any details. You could at least say 90% complete, in final testing, or something that would provide a little more clarity.

    Re: Adding video / articles to blog

    The ability to add a video to a blog post has been released. If you haven't published your GoCentral site in a while, you might need to do so before you can add video to your blog post. If that's the case, you'll get a notice in the app letting you know what to do.

    Re: Adding video / articles to blog

    Excellent news. I'll give it a go this afternoon!

    Re: Adding video / articles to blog

    Used the video add feature in the blog.  The video shows in website edit mode, but not when published.      Instead, I see this.  Looks like it should be a warning, but even this image is incomplete.  I have videos present in the motion section of my site that work fine.

    Re: Adding video / articles to blog

    Good Morning,

     

    I am attempting to add a video to a blog post I am creating and thought it gives me the option to select a video and it populates a blank video box but it doesn't give me an option to upload a video.

     

    I have the ability to add the video link but that is all it does in the post. I am not sure exactly what else I am suppose to do. I have no other options available except to delete the option for the video or cancel the whole post. I have published my site after the video option was given.

     

    I believe something is not right. and the last inquiry that was sent on this was not answered.

     

    Please review and response. I will be following up on this.

     

    with many thanks,

    Hi @RLHdaisy,

     

    It seems you got as far as entering the video URL in the sidebar after inserting a video section in your blog post. Once you do that, the blank video box should be replaced by the video player. If that's not happening, I'll likely need to get some more info from you to troubleshoot, such as the video URL you're trying to insert. Feel free to private message me with the URL so I can check it out.

     

    Thanks,

    Susan
