Embedding External Content

You may want to post external content from another content provider into your community. Fortunately, Fuel Cycle uses Embed.ly to support dozens of different providers, including:

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo
  • Tumblr
  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram
  • Flickr
  • Prezi
  • Reuters
  • Forbes
  • Marvelapp
  • and many more…

For a full list, visit embed.ly/providers.


You can embed external content directly into the content blocks in the Description step when creating an activity.

  1. First select “File” as the block type.  Select “Embed” in the second drop-down menu called “Select file source”.
  2. Copy the link of the content you want to embed and paste that link into the “Embed URL” field.
  3. The embedded content will display directly on the activity detail page where the member can interact with it.
