Embed + Text

The Embed + Text widget embeds an oEmbed-supported web resource and a text block to the left or right of it. Examples of oEmbed-supported resources include those from YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and Slideshare.

Accessing the Embed + Text widget

You can also get to the same editing interface by clicking the blue edit button at the top right corner of a Home page, Feature page, or About page. For more information, see Selecting and Formatting Widgets.

Once you are editing the page, click on a grey "+" to reveal a new undefined widget. Next, click on the blue "+" to the left of the widget to open up the widget menu, then choose the Embed + Text widget from the list of Standard Widgets. You should see the options in the image below.
