Elfsight plugin Yottie will help you to:

  • increase the popularity of your own channel
  • improve metrics of your website
  • entertain the audience on a website
  • promote your brand

1. Purchase Our Plugin on CodeCanyon

Visit CodeCanyon and type “Yottie” in the search bar. As we’re trying to install the plugin on a WP website, you need to choose the appropriate WordPress version. Purchase the item and then go to your downloads on Envato.

3. Customize YouTube Gallery As You Want

Choose Yottie in your sidebar and you will be forwarded to the admin panel of the YouTube video gallery. See greetings? For sure, you do. Now let’s create your first gallery!

First things first, you have to give the new gallery a name – anything you want. This name will be displayed only in the admin panel and it will be used for your comfort while editing, for example, several galleries. We remind you that you can display as many YouTube galleries as you want on one website.

Customizing Yottie parameters is what you should next. Set required sources, customize sizes, colors and UI – create your unique video playlist.

Save Yottie gallery

Don’t forget to save Yottie gallery

At the end of all adjustments save your gallery.

4. Paste the Shortcode into Any Page

The last step is to copy the shortcode. You will find it in the gallery list. In the admin sidebar choose pages section and open the page where you’d like to insert the gallery. Paste there the shortcode and save the page.

You can check the page now – Yottie is already here!

Congrats! You’ve installed the YouTube plugin!
