Embedding Media in Text

With the Sporty content management system (CMS), you can embed media such as tweets from Twitter, videos from YouTube, audio, and photos from Facebook into any text area such as your News articles or your Text Widget. This method supports over 1,000 different media sources.


To embed audio, click Site Settings then Documents and Audio.

Click the Upload Button to import your audio clip.

Once uploaded, you are able to copy the audio’s URL. Simply click the black button to bring up the pop-up box, and then copy the URL.

Once you are back in your text box, click on the audio icon in the widget toolbar. Paste your copied audio here.

Your audio clip is now embedded into your text.

Paste this link into your text and the Tweet will appear.
