Cascade Tip of the Month: Introducing the YouTube Rotating Widget

It’s springtime on campus, which means colorful flowers, Frisbee in the Sunken Garden, tour groups galore and new web features! Many of us use widgets to highlight certain content on our pages, and YouTube widgets are a great way to showcase great video content. But how do you pick which video to feature? The YouTube widget we all know and love now has the same functionality as a rotating widget, and can feature up to five videos at a time*! Creating a new YouTube rotating widget—or adding videos to an existing one—is simple:

  • Create a new YouTube widget folder.
  • Edit the widget file.
  • Select the green plus sign to add additional videos.

Happy editing. And happy #wmInSpring!

*Note: the rotating video widget feature is currently available for www.wm.edu, business.wm.edu and law.wm.edu. It will become available for education.wm.edu and vims.edu in the coming months.
