Using Material From Our Site
We’re flattered that you would like to include our stuff in your web site, article, or letter to Grandma. We want to help the community as much as we can. There’s just a few things we need to clarify first.
Our work is copyrighted.
- You may not use our work for commercial purposes without our express written permission
- You may not alter, transform, or build upon our work without our express written permission
- You may not syndicate our posts via RSS
- You may not copy/paste our work into your site to “help the community”
However, we love helping the community, so we’re willing to grant you license to use parts of our work to help others. If you’d like to include a short summary of one of our articles in your site, please include a link back to the original post on our site, prominently disclose that we are the author, and do not use more than 25% of our post.
If you find our work on any other site, please email us.
If you’d like to automatically copy all of our new posts, please read our posts on plagiarism first. We know you think you’re helping the community by getting the word out about our material, but we don’t want our content copied without our permission ahead of time.
How to Use Our Videos in Your Site
If you’re using WordPress v2.9 or newer, all you have to do is put the YouTube video URL on a line by itself, like this:
To get the URL when you’re watching one of our videos, just click in the video itself. YouTube will launch in a new window. You can also check out our full list of videos in our YouTube channel.
Preview your blog post, and you’ll see that WordPress automagically converts that line into a nice video player.
If you’re not using WordPress v2.9 or newer, let us know what web software you’re using and we may be able to point you to a guide on embedding YouTube videos.
