Cycling Experiences… Sidebar Video ~ YES!

Sidebar Video I’ve wanted this since I began blogging with WordPress.com [November 30, 2008]. Now I have it and I’m really happy about it. I found how to on the WP.com Widgets Forum in this thread [ Images and icons- Coraline ]. Thanks to the contributors and especially panaghiotisadam, a WordPress.com Forum Volunteer,  who tells us how to do it. It is more technical than I understand, you I am able to have my YouTube Videos play in my sidebar. The history on this is a matter of security concerns for WordPress. I respect that and only hoped that one day I could. That day is today! This is the code in my text wizard:SB Video ShortCode I will rotate video periodically. Jus select play to begin watching in your browser. I hope you like this feature.

  1. Well, the sidebar video has stopped for some reason. My testing says it is not a sidebar problem, nor is it a browser problem. I’m trying to pinpoint the source. Hopefully, I can resolve. Thanks!

  2. Maybe this is the issue [posted on the WP.com forum by me]:

    I hope this helps.

    I verify my blog works with 6 browsers. One of them–SeaMonkey displays this message: “No hotlinking please.” If that is what we are doing, I do not know. I certainly do not want to “steal.” I have sent an email to gigya asking for assistance. I signed up to use their services yesterday. Their coding will work for WordPress.org blogs–not WP.com blogs.

    I’m awaiting their contact.

    1. The exact cause of the problem has not been given. Here is a comment from one of the WP.com support staff:

      Not sure what’s up with gigya shortcodes yet, but we’re looking into it. Keep in mind it’s a 3rd party service. We need to dig a little to find out what’s causing the trouble.
