Embedding: the basics
Content can be embedded into a project section using two methods:
Paste the share URL
Not all share URLs can be embedded as we need to include specific code for each source. Contact the Support Desk if you need something added [support@onwritetrack.com].
Paste the embed code
Not all sites provide embed code (HTML tagging)
Using the embed code allows you to control the width and height of the iFrame in which the content is embedded. The width and height are contained in the code, and ca easily be edited.
Go to the Insert menu and open the 'Embed media' item
Paste the share code or embed code and then click the green 'insert media' button
