Sorry guys and gals but I'm having trouble adding youtube videos. When I go to 'insert youtube video' I place the url and ID into the script line but only the text is displayed on the page after preview.

Here's a YouTube URL (mostly). What you want is the part highlighted, everything from "v=" to the first &::

...youtube.com/watch?v=zORv8wwiadQ&feature=player_embedded

Putting other stuff in will make the button malfunction. Yes, the buttons are a little over-sensitive to inputs they don't expect.
