Exhibits Documentation A guide to building exhibits using Spotlight


The Video widget allows you to embed videos from external web sites onto exhibit pages.

Accessing the Video widget

To use the Video widget on a Home page, Feature page, or About page, navigate to your dashboard and select the page you wish to edit from the Curation sub-menu. 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.

Click on the blue plus sign to the left of the box to open up the widget menu, and choose the Video widget from the list of Standard Widgets. You should see the options in the image below.

Video widget and options

For this widget, there are two options. You can either drag a video onto the widget or paste in the video’s URL. The drag and drop option is currently not available, so you will need to paste the URL into the box. The video should display in the edit window immediately. Be sure to click the Save changes button to save your work.
