Inserting videos and maps

Learn how to easily embed different content to your Voog site.

How to I add videos to my Voog site?

Begin by adding a '€˜Movie'€™ content area to your Voog page from the '€˜+Add'€™ menu.

You will see a new field appear in the content area titled '€˜Insert dynamic content from any modern web app'€™. As you click on it, a new window will appear where you can insert your video URL.

Once you paste the URL into this field, a preview window will also appear under the tool. If the preview displays the correct video that you'€™d like to add to your site, click '€˜Insert'€™ and it will be added to your website.

Alternatively, you can also add a video to your Voog page from the text toolbar. To do that, you'€™ll first have to be in the '€˜Text'€™ content area.

Then, click on the movie icon on the toolbar, enter your video URL and a preview of the video will appear under the toolbar. Click '€˜Insert'€™ to add it to your text area.

NB! We suggest embedding videos from such sites as Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Metacafe etc., as opposed to uploading them to your '€˜Files'€™ menu on your Voog site.

Streaming videos from a dedicated host always guarantees that the video quality and streaming speed will be as good and fast as possible.

How do I add a Google Map to my site?

Begin by adding a '€˜Map'€™ content area from '€˜Content'€™ menu to your website.

Then, proceed to the Google Maps page and open copy your maps embed-code to the clipboard, paste it into the Voog URL window that opens up when clicked on the '€˜Map'€™ content area titled '€˜Insert dynamic content from any modern web app'€™. Select '€˜Insert'€™ and the map will be added to your page.


Alternatively, you can also add a Google Map to your page from the text toolbar. To do that, you'€™ll first have to be in the '€˜Text'€™ content area. Then, simply click on the map icon on the toolbar, enter your location address and when the location is found, just click on '€˜Insert'€™. We recommend to use this method if you need to change the size of your map - just add the map from your text editor toolbar, click on it and drag it's size like a picture.

By the way, you may also select the map mode from the upper-right side by choosing either '€˜Map'€™ or '€˜Terrain'€™.
