Youtube Profile Field
Please note: This is an old post. The information is probably not accurate and up-to-date anymore.

Youtube Profile Field might be a wrong name for my new WordPress plugin, because you can do much more than just show your Youtube username. After I created Twitter Profile Field did I get a request from a user there wanted a Youtube profile field there will allow him to show his and his users Youtube videos.

With a simple template tag or a shortcode can you show yours or your users latest Youtube videos. It uses SimplePie to pull the video information out of the users Youtube Video RSS Feed.


  1. Download the plugin and unzip it.
  2. Put the youtube-profile-field folder into the wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Go to the Plugins page in your WordPress Administration area and click ‘Activate’ next to Youtube Profile Field.
  4. Go to your Profile page and at the bottom of the page is a new input field called Youtube username. Add your username in there.
