What is a Video Component?

You can add videos to your website with a Video Component. Once videos are added with the Video Component your video will be displayed on your website. 
 

To get started with adding content to your Video Component, click on the green “Edit” button to the right of your Video Component. See "What Are Page Components?" if you are unsure of the process up to this point.
 

Creating a Title for your Video

To create a title for your Video, use the arrow to the right of the blue “Component Header Options” to reveal these options. Check the box to “Show Component Header” and place your title into the “Header Text” field then click the green “Save” button. This will place a bold title over your Video on the public side of your page.

Video components also have an alternate method of adding a slightly smaller title. To enter a title this way, simply place your title in the “Video Title” field.
