Add videos to your Exhibition descriptions
Some galleries prefer giving a little more information about the artists in their Exhibitions, video samples of their 3d installation work, or just to help potential buyers get to know more about the show befor attending. You can use HTML Embeds to embed a video into an Exhibition page.
Most websites are built in part with HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). Many of ArtCloud's text fields can have their HTML edited to do specific things that the plain text editor (which allows you to just type text into a description box) cannot.
Where do I get a video embed code?
Video embed codes are not exactly the same as HTML. They contain a link or URL to your video, but using an embed code formats the video to appear on websites properly. Here are guides from two popular video sharing sources on how to find your video's embed code.
NOTE: Embed links cannot be acquired from video storage sites (for example, embedding a video using a Google Drive URL). They must be first posted on one of the platforms above to function.
Where to place your video embed code in your Exhibition description
HTML allows you to modify content in more direct and specific ways than the ArtCloud Website Builder can. However, we advise someone with a knowledge of HTML and programming to make these modifications beyond simple tasks like this one. You can modify the HTML in an Exhibition's description by navigating to an Exhibition's editing menu and clicking the <> button above the Exhibition's Description field.
Next, an editing screen will pop up. Depending on the amount of text in your description, you may see a lot of symbols that you don't understand. This is HTML! But as you look closer, you'll begin to notice something familiar - your Exhibition's Description! It's okay if you don't know what it all means. Just place your embed code beneath all of the text in this popup.
Now, if you visit that Exhibition detail page, you'll see your video beneath their description:
