Videos »CNNMoney Video

CNNMoney is the online home of Fortune and Money, and serves as CNN.com’s exclusive business site. It offers videos on market news, economic analysis, auto and technology reviews, personal finance advice, small business profiles, and conversations with important names in business news. You can now quickly and easily share videos from CNNMoney.com with just one link on WordPress.com.

Embedding with a URL

To quickly embed a CNNMoney video, simply copy the video’s URL from your web browser’s address bar while viewing the video:

And paste it on a line by itself in your post/page editor:

The rest takes care of itself. The video will look something like this:

Embedding with a Shortcode

You can also embed CNNMoney video using a shortcode:

[cnnmoney-video url=http://money.cnn.com/video/news/2012/10/23/n-presidential-debate-foreign-policy.cnnmoney/index.html]

Embedding with a shortcode and embedding with a URL both display the video in the same size and style. The difference is that the shortcode will still embed the video even if it’s not on its own line in the editor.

Troubleshooting

  • Make sure the CNNMoney link is not hyperlinked. If the URL is shown in your theme’s link color (as the second line in the screenshot below), then it is hyperlinked. Simply select the whole URL and click the “Unlink” icon on your Visual Editor toolbar.

    Once the URL is unlinked, you will see the link text in black.
  • Make sure to place the CNNMoney URL on its own line. This means there should be no character or whitespace before or after the URL/shortcode.
