Q: 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 (&).

Q: 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.


Q: 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.


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