KB1909327: How do I add a YouTube video to my GitHub page??

You cannot embed a video into a GitHub Markdown page, but you can create a YouTube video thumbnail with a link.

MarkdownTableMaker handles the generation of YouTube video thumbnails automatically. Simply, enter the YouTube watch URL into the spreadsheet cell using the <<URL>> syntax.

For example, instead of using this watch URL with the video ID:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEO_ID

… use the <<URL>> syntax:

<<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEO_ID>>

The YouTube video thumbnail will be generated during Markdown table conversion.

The following is a side-by-side demonstration with the same URL:

  • the normal URL is treated as an ordinary link
  • the other <<URL>> with “template” notation is converted to a YouTube video thumbnail.

KB1909326: Does MarkdownTableMaker support images?

Yes. You must use the =IMAGE( ) function to call an image by using a valid URL. This image URL will be converted into corresponding Markdown syntax. Also, you can add a “note” to the spreadsheet cell, which will be converted to alt text or title text.

KB1907432: Google editor add-on removal guide; Help removing MarkdownTableMaker

This guide has been designed to help with the removal of Google editor add-ons. The example add-on in this guide will be the MarkdownTableMaker for Google Sheets.

Removing the Google editor add-ons may be confusing, especially during Google’s editor add-on migration period (KB1906495).

For example, if more than one instance of the add-on is installed (that is, if both the Chrome Web Store and G Suite Marketplace versions of the same add-on are installed concurrently), there may be confusion when attempts to remove the add-on fail.

The guide is designed to help resolve these issues.

Revoke Access

To remove the add-on, please visit your Google Account permissions page. Then, simply “revoke access” to MarkdownTableMaker.

Google Sheets Add-on Removal

If you installed a G Suite Marketplace add-on in addition to the same Chrome Web Store add-on during the editor add-on migration period, then you may have “two instances” of the same add-on unintentionally installed.

One instance may be in Google Chrome Web Store, and the other one may be in G Suite Marketplace. As a result, you may try to remove an add-on using the Google Sheets interface with no success.

Here is an example of such unexpected behavior:

At first it appeared you had completed the removal process, but then you check the add-ons menu to find your add-on is still listed.

You have tried removing the editor add-on with the Chrome Web Store add-on menu, but that process failed. You may also need to use the G Suite Marketplace add-on management interface.

G Suite Marketplace Add-on Removal

To remove the add-on, open the G Suite Marketplace add-on management interface. Access the “Manage Apps” menu, then “remove” the MarkdownTableMaker add-on.

This video illustrates these steps:

Removed

Now, the MarkdownTableMaker add-on should be completely removed.

Re-install

You may now re-install MarkdownTableMaker.

KB1907408: Install MarkdownTableMaker for Google Sheets using Chrome Web Store

As a possible solution, MarkdownTableMaker for Google Sheets can be installed using the Chrome Web Store.

KB1906495: Google migration of the Google editor add-ons and related issues

Effective June 20, 2019, all Google Drive add-ons have been migrated from the Chrome Web Store to the G Suite Marketplace.

This migration of the add-ons from the Chrome Web Store was designed by Google to streamline editor add-on deployment and improve app discovery. The process has changed the look and feel of editor add-on management.

However, many users reported that the MarkdownTableMaker add-on was no longer available in the G Suite Marketplace, due to technical issues or administrative controls.

To fix this issue, Google has once again allowed users to install from either the Google Chrome Web Store (KB1904708) or the G Suite Marketplace (KB1909318).

It is highly recommended that you contact your system administrator for details regarding installing and uninstalling Google editor add-ons.

Also, as mentioned in the Removal Guide (KB1907432), installing multiple instances of the same add-on has made uninstalling editors add-ons confusing for some users. The Removal Guide provides detailed steps to ensure complete removal.

Again, it is highly recommended that you contact your system administrator for details regarding installing and uninstalling Google editor add-ons.
