Experimenting and Funny as Well

I’m trying again to figure out how to actually embed a video in Joomla.  Actually, I’m contemplating a redesign of my website — it’s been a number of years with it looking exactly the same, and changing back to WordPress which I found easier than Joomla, but I need time to think about a new design.  Actually, I would love to hear from any readers about what they think would be a cool design that honors the sense of adventure and science fiction and rationality, plus be an easily navigated site.

But right now I’m going to try to drop in this hilarious Eddie Izzard video that Walter had linked on his blog.  I don’t do karate any longer.  A kick from a white belt who was also a full back on the Rio Rancho high school football team sidelined me for months with separated ribs.  I saw the kick coming.  I blocked it perfectly, but body mass and inertia beats perfect form and training every time.  It was as if my arm wasn’t even there.  He ended up catching me right under my ribs, lifting me into the air, and crashing me against the wall.  He then stood, shocked and stared at me as I hunched over my aching chest so I kicked him in the cup.  Then I fell down in a heap.

But I digress.  Let’s see if this works, and you can enjoy the incomparable Eddie.  (I’m trying this again using an Apple command that I hadn’t really paid attention to before.)

    Well, that didn’t work. When I try to use embed video in Joomla it won’t embed. It will just form a link. So I tried this the way it works in WordPress — don’t link, and put on a separate line. That doesn’t work in Joomla either. Yeah, Joomla and I are not simpatico.

  • MelindaS says:

    Nope. Still didn’t work. Yeah, I hate Joomla.

    [url][/url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uJqW9O6aW0 this might work like this ? the youtube url

    I’ll copy the URL you sent, Vincent, and see, but it just won’t embed a picture like on other people’s websites. I really, really hate this platform. It’s just way to confusing for tech morons like me. Uploading photos to Joomla is enormously time consuming and then half the time I can’t find where Joomla stored them. I know Facebook is an evil empire, but it makes things so easy for people.

    I want to change back to WordPress, but I should have a redesign of the site before I do that, and right now I don’t want to spend the money for a whole new look. *sigh*

    I’ve been trying to sign up with Triberr, and even there I can’t find the URL for the RSS feed on this blog so I can’t finish signing up. Sorry to bitch on a Wednesday morning. I just hate trivial crap that pulls me away from my work.
