WebsiteBuilder: How to Add a Video

NOTE: We offer two different versions of WebsiteBuilder. Our original implementation of the builder is the Classic Editor, while WebsiteBuilder Express Editor is the newest interface commonly found in the Foundation dashboard. It is not possible to upgrade a Classic Builder site to the Express Editor. The site will need to be recreated with the Express Editor. All new WebsiteBuilder installations will be the Express Editor.

In this article, we have provided two sets of instructions for each editor. Follow the instruction set that matches your WebsiteBuilder version.
