How to Delete Photos

To delete a photo or an uploaded document (Form 990, audited financial statement, etc.) from your profile that you've already uploaded, select the Delete link to the far right of the image. Sometimes, given various browser and computer settings, you might not see that link displayed. Here's how to fix that:

In other words, scroll to the bottom of the photos section, then drag over to the right. Scroll back up and the Delete links should now appear.

This is not the URL you used to navigate to your video on YouTube; please make sure the URL includes “/embed/” by following these steps: 1) Navigate to your video on YouTube. 2) Select Share beneath your video. 3) Select the Embed tab. 4) Grab the URL enclosed in the embed code—we’ve built in everything else!

 

YouTube

When you go to YouTube, be sure to press "Share", then "Embed", then copy and paste that link into the Video section of your GuideStar Profile. That should do the trick!

 

Vimeo

See the screen shot below for instructions on copying the correct URL to upload your Vimeo.
