Having tried (incorrectly) 3 times to embed a youtube video into my web easy site, I now have 2 questions:

1. When I preview the site, the video comes up 3 times in 3 different places. How do I remove this from the web easy - the code is not visible to me.

2. How to I correctly embed a you tube video in easy web.

Thanks.

Yes..As ehymel said, your question is not clear. Please explain your problem. At least provide a link to your site.

I have the same question.

If the video has been embedded three times (incorrectly, as to position, and size) on the page, why can't I see the code while in webeasy.

Of course, I can see it in the html that webeasy generated.

Thanks.

I'm just trying out webeasy - looking for a wysisyg web authoring program that is easy to use.

Yes, I can clean it up with Dreamweaver (I could even do it in Notepad if I had to), but any changes made to the html code don't port back into webeasy - I don't think.

Which means I can do no further work in webeasy since the changed html code is not there.

Thanks.

To hopefully make it easier for you guys to figure out what's going on here, I copied the .ALB to dropbox.

If give me an email address, I can give you access to the dropbox folder and you can download it to your pc, or I can even even mail it directly to you - it's only 48K.

Other question regarding embedding this youtube video:
How do you resize the embedded video so that it fits the space you would like to put it in?
Change the html that you embed?
Resize it using the handles in webeasy?

Thanks.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with webeasy.

If you can edit in notepad, meaning if you have the knowledge to edit code directly, then that's probably your best bet. Historically wysiwig editors tend to generate excessive, messy code that drives me nuts, and I have to fight the editor to get what I want instead of just writing exactly what I want and getting it.

yep, If you can do that manually, then try it. That is the best thing

Yup, You are probably right about the sloppy excessive code.

I was hoping to use Webeasy, which has gotten some good reviews, to do a couple of small, non complicated sites.

Dreamweaver 2!!! here I come. Or may notepress.

Thanks.

I personally use Aptana Studio. Version 3 is technically still in beta, but I've been using it for a few months now and it works great. You can find it here. I have no affiliation with aptana, just for the record.

Professionals use developed tools, not betas.
I'm amused that you would confuse me, or anyone else in this thread, for a professional web developer.

Aptana studio is free, open source, and well-developed. If you don't want to use a beta version, there are earlier version that are non-beta.

As a professional myself in a completely unrelated field, I respect your expertise and opinion as a professional web developer. However, not everyone, particularly most who come to this forum for help, needs to use professional-grade tools.

I think DreamWeaver is the best...I have never heard about that software provided by ehymel.

ehymel,
How is that software friend? Why you stopped DreamWeaver? Did you experience any disadvantages, bugs, impossibilities, or something else? Please let us know. And why you think it is better than DreamWeaver?

I haven't used Dreamweaver for about 10 years now (right around the time Adobe bought it from Macromedia). Once Adobe bought it, first version or 2 was buggy so I abandoned it. 10 years later I'm sure it's great and bug-free, but I cannot really comment on Dreamweaver.

For myself, where the web is an avid hobby more than my profession, I wanted something free. I found Aptana when I dabbled in Ruby on Rails a year or 2 ago. I didn't stick with Rails, but aptana stuck as my development platform. It color-codes my functions, supports php perfectly, offers sftp uploads, gives me shortcuts to my classes, etc. Works for me.

If you already have and are using Dreamweaver, I won't be able to offer any compelling reason to drop it for something else. If you're looking for free software that helps you with a hobby, then Aptana Studio is one of many out there that fits the bill.

Happy New Year to everyone!

My bad... I'm thinking about another product called HomeSite. Not even sure this is used anymore.

I did dabble with Dreamweaver briefly, but got busy with other parts of my life. When I came back to web development as a continued hobby, I didn't look again.

Just setting my own record straight...

HomeSite? Yep, after 2008, I haven't seen this!!! It has added to the History!! It is now in the museum I think!
