  5. To add the Youtube wall to your site, you can use the shortcode [getYouTubeWall] within any page or post. Advanced WordPress users could also add the function call directly to their theme to use the widget outside of a page or post (more on this below)

Shortcode Usage

To output the Youtube Wall configured on the settings page, simply use the following shortcode anywhere in a post or page within WordPress:

[getYouTubeWall]

To output a Youtube Wall configured with custom settings, you can define the settings on the shortcode like this:

[getYouTubeWall channelid=”xxxx”]

[getYouTubeWall videocount=”5″ videoid=’xx,yy,zz’]

The full list of shortcode settings:

api_key
channelid
playlistid
videoid

tiletext

If you are using multiple walls on a single page, then each of your shortcodes needs to have a unique ID.

Advanced Usage

For those of you who know your way around a WordPress theme, it’s possible to embed the Youtube Wall directly within your theme using the wordpress function do_shortcode. This will allow you to put the widget anywhere in your theme, even outside of a post or a page.

To do so, use the following PHP code anywhere in your theme.

<?php echo do_shortcode('[getYouTubeWall]') ?>
