  • Subscriber button layout has two options, ‘Small’ and ‘Full’. In which ‘small’ doesn’t show the channel icon whereas ‘Full’ shows the channel icon before the subscribe button.
  • You can show or hide Subscribers count using the option available.
  • You can change the Subscribe to channel text to change the text before the Subscribe button.

Once you are done with the necessary changes, click on Save Changes.


This method works only with oEmbed videos. These are the videos that are embedded into a post without using iframes. You can directly copy and paste the URL of the video you want to embed in the blog post directly. Just copy and paste the URL and wait for a second to show the thumbnail in the post editor.
