Enable or Disable Link Embedding

This section describes the process for enabling and disabling automatic media embedding in the Tiny Editors.

Before you begin

Before you begin: The Tiny Editor Services must be installed and to use the hyperlinking service for media embedding it must not be disabled in the application.conf.


  1. Using a plain text editor, open customization_path/javascript/tiny/editors/connections/config.js.
  2. Locate the property linkEmbedEnabled such as linkEmbedEnabled: true, and set it to:
    • true to allow the Tiny Editors to embed media links using the hyperlinking service.
    • false to stop the Tiny Editors from embedding media links using the hyperlinking service.
  3. When you have finished making configuration changes, follow the post-customization steps to ensure the server cache is updated.
    Note: If the configuration changes do not take affect, restart the Common enterprise application to force a cache update.
