Cascade Tip of the Month- YouTube Captions

W&M Cascaders, embedding a YouTube Video in the content of a page or story is an easy and powerful way to engage visitors. But often the poster frame and the placement in your page do not provide enough context and the impact of the video is lost. Not to worry, much like content images, your videos can now include optional (but highly recommended) captions. For example to embed a small, left-aligned version of the W&M holiday video in your page with the caption, “Enjoy this musical greeting from William & Mary students.” you need only type the following in your editor:

{{youtube:small:left|MbtyALJGahk, Enjoy this musical greeting from William & Mary students.}}
