Add a YouTube video inside a live Q&A


We are releasing a new feature today for Dilmot.

You asked for it: Is it possible to embed a video in an iframe inside an answer or comment in Dilmot?

Yes, you can just copy the iframe code, for example, in YouTube, like this:

Pick up the embed code from YouTube video > Share > Embed option

Pick up the embed code from YouTube video > Share > Embed option

And paste it into the answer or comment in the panel of your Dilmot Q&A stream:

You can now embed a video inside an answer or comment within the Dilmot panel

You can now embed a video inside an answer or comment within the Dilmot panel

This example for YouTube would equally apply to other providers such as Ustream or Livestream.

Embed social network streams in your blog or website


Aggregating all your social networks in your website or blog, can help you to engage your readers and save you time

As a plugin in your blog

I have good experience using Twitget. It is a plugin for WordPress. You can download the plugin in this link: https://wordpress.org/plugins/twitget/.

With the new version of the Twitter API, 1.1., it is required that you obtain an API key in order to be able to grab your tweets.

Embed a single tweet

Another option is to choose the tweet you want and just insert it inside your post.
This is currently possible as a regular feature in Twitter. It will look like this:

 

This will work in a WordPress hosted blog as well. Bear in mind that not all iframes are allowed in the WordPress.com blog.

Add a Q&A section to your website using Dilmot


Having a Q&A can be a great tool to be in touch with your followers, your fans, your potential clients, you name it. Using

Dilmot.com

publishing platform it is very simple

Let’s say you manage a website for a music band, or for a writer, or a sportswoman, or an expert or celebrity. Or just for yourself. If you want to publicly address questions from your fans or visitors, it would be great to have a tool to let you manage those questions and answer in a simple manner.

Well this on-line tool exists and it is called Dilmot. Just open an account at dilmot.com and start managing your Q&A.

Dilmot is closely connected to the main social networks, so there are some things that you can do such as receiving questions that the users send with certain #hashtag. You could announce, for example, send your questions using Twitter with the #askSamantha. And everytime a tweet is sent with that #hashtag, it will be automatically added to the questions in your inbox.

Also, the users that send questions can identify themselves using their Twitter or Facebook accounts.

Using Q&A’s has proven to be a valuable method of creating content for your website and create engagement for your readers.

So, what are you waiting for? Get your account today, it is free :)

Using Dilmot inside a WordPress iFrame


If you have a blog or any site using WordPress as the content management platform, then you can easily put the Dilmot application inside a post or page. You just need to put it as an iFrame. The only caveat is that the default installation of WordPress does not allow to insert iFrames. If you put them inside the “HTML” version of the post the “iframe” tags will be eliminated when you save the post.

The workaround for this limitation is to use a plugin that allows you to do this. There are several good plugins, and we recommend using the iFrame Plugin, which you can download here http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/iframe/

This would be an example

[iframe src="http://put-the-url-here" width="100%" height="480"]

Hope this tip helps to find new possibilities for your WordPress. And remember that Dilmot also has good integration capabilities with Facebook and Twitter.
