How to add suggested links for videos

Lost of people like to add suggested links above the videos like YouTube. On YouTube, you can add suggested links at any time that you like and it isn’t possible in WordPress on default. Well, we decided to create a plugin called suggested links for videos, and in this post, we’ll talk about this plugin so stay with us.

Install plugin

Well, for showing the suggested links above the videos you must install the suggested links for videos plugin on our WordPress website first.

Login to your admin dashboard panel then open the plugins menu and click add plugin.

Type the “Suggested links for videos” in the search box.
