Video and project embeds in Make: Projects

Video and project embeds in Make: Projects

We’ve recently rolled out two new useful functions in our online DIY library, Make: Projects. The first is that you can embed YouTube or Vimeo videos in the introduction field of any project, and the second is that you can easily embed any project in its entirety anywhere else on the web. Check out the Soda Bottle Rocket project from MAKE Volume 05 to see how a vid looks in layout (with size=large and alignment=center). And check out the Wiki Syntax guide for the video embed code.

As for embedding a whole project elsewhere, all projects now have a handy Embed link under Formats. Grab it, drop it, and it looks like this:

We’ve working hard to fine-tune Make: Projects into a truly valuable tool for makers of all stripes. If you have feedback, let us know!

    Perhaps an obvious link to the full project page from the embedded module?

    Looks like the Make logo is intended to do this, but 1.) its not obvious and not everyone would think to click on the logo and 2.) the link behind the logo is broken, thusly:

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
