    This morning I purchased and installed some software to extend our capabilities for embedding media into posts, including a couple of things that were specifically requested recently — Twitter and Hudl videos. We can now natively embed those items right into posts rather than just linking to them on their source sites.

    You just need to grab the URL of the item and enter it into the Media window to put it in your post.


    There are lots of other media sites supported in the new software so we should have plenty of options for this now.

    For those of you who don't know, THE BIG GUY stepped up to the money plate and purchased additional software so that we can have these much-needed extra features.

    Thanks @Godz40acres -- the Twitter embeds look really good. I like how it preserves all the links within the tweet.
