Iframe with youtube in elgg 1.12 and 2.3 for users blog custom pages


How to make iframe tag with youtube link available for any user's blog custom page , as for example the iframe example below:

<iframe width="420" height="315"




I found very old plugin (https://github.com/joker-x/elgg-iframe/blob/master/views/default/elgg-iframe/js/test.html) which seems that could fix the issue but it is rather old and not working on elgg 1.12 where I need it.

I will need the solution for elgg 2.3 in near future as well.


Can you suggest me how to achieve it  (either upgrading the joker-x plugin or any other simple solution)?

Best regards,
