Will I have to update my Embed?

  • No, the look and feel of the embed automatically updated on January 22nd, 2024.

    There are some new and exciting customizations you can now add to your embed depending on the embed you have chosen – including color customization, adding featured content, choosing the language of your embed and creating embed categories (channel embed only).

    If you update or change the main color of your embed it will automatically update.

    If you update or change the featured content, language or categorization tags, you will need to switch out your existing embed code for the new code provided.

What size is the new channel/webinar Embed?

  • The embed is responsive so will work on any size screen with a max width of 1440px

I see that is bigger than my current Embed, is that going to make the design of the page look weird? Will I have to get my web dev team to do something?

  • It’s a responsive design so it will automatically adjust to the size of the user’s browser. As such sizing and website layout is not an issue.

Will this embed perform better than the old Embed?

  • The embed adopts the best practices of our optimized player pages, and reduces the number of clicks-to-engagement from the old embed - as such it will be more performant than the old embed. 

What customizations are available?

  • You can pick the featured content, language, tags and the color of the buttons

What if I don't use the color customization?

  • The default button color is a neutral grey, same as the previous embed.

How do I use the Embed categorization tags?

  • You can request these be added to your channel through your CSM or Support and then content can be tagged against them in the content booking form. 

How to format your embed URL?

URLs always have to follow the format:

  • protocol://domain.tld/filename.ext?param1=foobar&param2=foobar#anchor 

For example: won't work, because the #anchor is before the ?param.

Instead, it should be: 

Other things to note: There must always be only one question mark, and it must always be placed immediately after the filename (index.html in the above example).  You would append additional parameters using ampersands (&).

Why can't I find a specific webinar within the embed options?  
Here are some tips for understanding why some webinars do not appear in the list of embed options:

  • To embed a webinar, the content must be set to Public webcast within Edit details
  • Additionally, you may need to change the publish settings from within Edit details to Published
  • After that is done you will be able to find the embed code for this webinar.

If I embed my Channel on my website, is it automatically updated each time I schedule an event?

Yes, the BrightTALK Channel embed automatically updates as events are scheduled. As their status changes, they are automatically moved from upcoming to live, and then to on-demand.


How do I redirect users to my website if I am using a BrightTALK embed?

If you are using a BrightTALK embed and would like the channel promotional emails to direct users to your website, you can choose between a fully automated channel embed or individual single webinar options:

  • Set up a Channel embed on your website and contact for full channel embed redirection. No further action is needed going forward! The new webinar URL will always be your website page with the Channel embed.
