In order for you to get the YouTube feed working you need an API Key. Here is the process to obtain that.

How to get the API Key?

  1. Go to https://developers.google.com/ and log in or create an account, if necessary.
  2. After logging in go to this link https://console.developers.google.com/project and click on the blue CREATE PROJECT button as depicted in the photo below. Wait a moment as google prepares your project.

    The consent screen is the authentication prompt for the user when it wants to use your application.
  7. Select for email address your developer account and fill in a product name. All other fields are optional.

How to work with 'Random Sentence Generator'?

You can use the Random Sentence Generator by inserting list of sentences to the 'First List of Possible Sentences (%%random_sentence%%)' text field. Here, you can add full sentences, or sentences with variables. Variables are structured as: %something. A possible list of sentences can be:

You can define variables in the 'List of Possible Variables:' textfield. Here you can define values to variables, values which will be used in the random sentence forming. Variables can be defined as follows:
variable_name1 => variable_value1;variable_value2;variable_value3

variable_name2 => variable2_value1;variable2_value2;variable2_value3
You can also use variables in variable definition. Example:
noun_with_adjective => %noun;%adjective %noun
An example of variable definition:
adjective_very => %adjective;very %adjective;

adjective => clever;interesting;smart;huge;astonishing;unbelievable;nice;adorable;beautiful;elegant;fancy;glamorous;magnificent;helpful;awesome

noun_with_adjective => %noun;%adjective %noun

noun => plugin;WordPress plugin;item;ingredient;component;constituent;module;add-on;plug-in;addon;extension

nouns => plugins;WordPress plugins;items;ingredients;components;constituents;modules;add-ons;plug-ins;addons;extensions

love_it => love;adore;like;be mad for;be wild about;be nuts about;be crazy about

family => %adjective %family_members;%family_members

family_members => grandpa;brother;sister;mom;dad;grandma

sentence_ending => .;!;!!
These random sentences can be used in post titles or post content, by adding the %%random_sentence%% or %%random_sentence2%% shortcode.

Available shortcode

You can also use the following shortcode in your content: [youtubomatic_video], [youtubomatic_search], [youtubomatic_channel] or [youtubomatic_playlist]. Use the [youtubomatic_video] shortcode to display a single video, by it's ID. Use the [youtubomatic_search] shortcode to display a list for searched videos, by a search term. Use the [youtubomatic_channel] shortcode to display videos from a specific channel, by it's ID. Use the [youtubomatic_playlist] shortcode to display videos from a playlist, by it's ID. Example of shortcode usage: [youtubomatic_video id=eFp90-dPke0], [youtubomatic_search id=audi], [youtubomatic_channel id=AudiofAmerica], [youtubomatic_playlist id=PL4BC045240D2FB11B].
