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

Last updated by vlad.vuk Comments (2)


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,
