embedded video on homepage blog post

Question

Posted · Report post

Hi, I'm embedding a vimeo video in my posts. It's the first thing inserted in the post. When I view my blog post on the home page it does not show up. Only when I click on the post to view the full post do I see it. Is there a way to get the blog post video to show up on the home page? thanks, Jeff

If it's not showing up on the home page, that must mean you're using post excerpts instead of full content posts on your blog page. Go to Settings > Blog And Posts and under Post Excerpt or Summary Handling, uncheck the box next to Posts/Blog Page. Under the section Full Post Content, check the box next to Posts/Blog Page. Save your options and view your site.

got it. I actually do want an post excerpt on the front page, but I want the embedded video to be included in that excerpt. Any way to do that? Thanks for your help. Jeff

That might be possible with some file customization if you're up for it.

FYI,figured it out. just need to add <iframe> tag to Allow tags in excerpt area of the Blogs and Posts section of the Platform Pro settings. Jeff

Adding the allowed tag worked great for embeding my youtube video in the blog post excerpt, but for some reason, the video is much wider on the blog page than it is on the post page.  IT bleeds over into the sidebar. Anyone know how to keep this from happening?
