    When I add a YouTube block and paste in the YouTube URL to a video, the thumbnail appears. When I publish the page and look on the live site, however, only the URL appears. Any ideas?

    Hi there,

    Which page can we see the issue?

    Let me know 🙂

    I thought I’d submitted this in the private info box. Sorry if I missed that — pasted it again.

    Are you using the block element module for that?

    I wonder if that’s the issue.

    Can you try a YouTube embed block in the regular content and see if that works?

    Let me know 🙂

    I am using the Youtube embed block.

    Can you first try disabling all plugins except GP Premium and GB to eliminate any conflicts?

    The YouTube block is a WP core block so it should work.

    All plugins except GP Premium and GenerateBlocks have now been deactivated.

    Can’t seem to replicate the issue on my end.

    Can you do me a favor, start a new page, and simply add a YouTube block in there and see if that works?

    Thank you for your ongoing assistance.

    OK so I started a new page and added a YouTube video three times.

    1. YouTube block – worked.
    2. YouTube block within a GB container – worked.
    3. Youtube block within a GB grid within a GB container – worked.

    The third option is exactly what I am doing with the footer. Could it be because I am using the Elements module for the footer? Would that explain why the video isn’t showing?

    Test URL in private information.

    Thought we fixed this issue before. Will take a closer look.

    Thanks!

    Seems to be an issue with WP not rendering youtube videos in the do_blocks() function. We could integrate a fix, but it feels like it’s not really our place…We will think about this some more 🙂

    Any update on this additional thought, Leo? If the answer is no, can you suggest the best way to reach out to WP and how to explain this problem?

    Hi there,

    Did you use the Block Element to replace the Footer ?
    What happens if you hook the block element in before_footer ?
