In a marketplace created with Sharetribe, you can edit up to four pages of content, to better describe your project and explain to your users how it works, what are your terms and privacy policy.

You can edit the content on these pages and even add pictures or videos.

Please note that this doesn't apply to listings (learn more about this here) or emails (as this is restricted by most email providers, only to static content pages.

Add a Youtube video to a content page

Unfortunately, there is a known issue with Youtube videos and the text editor. We do our best to improve that feature.
Meanwhile, here is the workaround to add Youtube videos:

  1. Log in to your marketplace as an admin.
  2. Go to your Admin panel, then "General / Static content".
  3. Edit the page you want to update.
  4. In the toolbar, click on <>("Edit the HTML content") to load your content in HTML, a more technical view.
  5. Go to the Youtube page of the video you'd like to embed.
  6. Click "Share" then "Embed".
  7. Copy the code displayed (it starts with "<iframe..."). You can also change video size and other settings if you click "Show more".
  8. Go back to your content page with the HTML content displayed.
  9. Look for the place where, among your text, you'd like to add your video. Add a new line.
  10. Paste the code you copied from Youtube.
  11. Click "Save and Replace". Your video should be embedded.
  12. You can center the video and/or add more content. When your content is OK, click "Save" in the upper left corner.

That's it! Your Youtube video is now available on your content page!

Add videos from other services (Vimeo, Wistia...)

If you want to add videos from other services, they must provide an embed code.
Follow the instructions above by adding your provider's embed code instead of Youtube's: it works with Vimeo, Wistia, and tons of others!
