Virtual events, educational sessions, and meetings are becoming more popular in today's society. If your organization has video content that is for members-only, or even a more specific group of users (e.g. Newsletter Subscribers), follow the steps below to embed the video on your website and lock it down to specific users.

Step 1: Create your page or article

Create a members-only static page or blog/news article, and lock it down to logged-in members with benefits or specific group(s).

  • Create a new blog/news article - To restrict the visibility of an article, put it in a blog category that is locked down (either to members-only or a specific group).

Step 2: Prepare your video & its settings

You'll need to upload your video to a video hosting platform prior to embedding it within your Novi page, such as YouTube. 

Additionally, you may choose to lock down visibility on the video platform, so that users can't share the video URL with others who can't access the Novi page.

Step 3: Add your video to the page/article

Now, you'll want to add your video to your Novi page or blog/news article.

  • Get the video embed code from the video platform, and/or check out this article for information on embedding responsive videos.

  • Copy the embed code and paste it into the Source Code of the page/article on your website. To learn more about editing frontend content, including how to access the Source Code, check out this article.

  • Save your work, and done!

*Please note that the video may not appear if you're logged in as an admin. To confirm that the source code update is working properly, log out or view the page incognito.
