Problem with favorites

Hi there I'm trying to implement a gallery of 'favorites' on one of our sites at
I have a shortcode [tubepress mode="favorites" favoritesValue="etravelbulletin"] in the right hand block near the top of the page but it's not working - instead displaying
Favorites for channel <code>UC3GVeh185zoO8jE3Qd-gTqA</code> are not public.

I have logged into youtube and ensured that the favorites playlist for our account are public.
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for getting in touch and we’ll be glad to assist. YouTube has actually deprecated the notion of “Favorites” and is slowly eliminating all references to it. The next version of TubePress won’t even offer the capability to access a channel’s favorites. The only workaround at the moment is to create a playlist and configure TubePress to display it.

I see that you have a manually-created playlist called “Favorites” 1. If you’d like TubePress to display those videos, you can adjust your TubePress shortcode slightly. Instead of mode=“favorites” (as you currently have), use

mode=“playlist” playlistValue=“PLmjjYUKiOmH936mkGF9lOMT3uPPLb6C9z”

in your shortcode.

Does that make sense? Please let us know how else we can assist, and thanks for using TubePress!
