Thanks Rangelone for the QuickSlider suggestion. My delima is that I would like to include a video with the post image somehow. For instance we have a cow to sell at auction. I need to include a still image and a video. I am trying to decide if Banners, Features, Boxes or a Quick Slider is best. Ideally I could click on a still image and a video would pop up and play.

Hi Christy, If you wish to have "Ideally I could click on a still image and a video would pop up and play." You probably be best using a plugin such as Lightbox or FancyBox and then use either the Banner section or the Boxes section and then apply the HTML to open the link withint the Lightbox/FancyBox popup. Have a play with both sections and see which suits your needs best.

In the boxes section, I put the video address in the "box link" option and it just opens up another browsing page to play the video. I just want a simp video player box to open up.

I believe he means that you need to add a certain piece of HTML code inside a link tag to enable the Lightbox/FancyBox popup for that link. For example:

 <a href="http://yourlinktoimage" "HTMLCODEGOESHERE">

I guess I am going to have to have more help here. I am a little lost. I don't even know what a link tag is. I should probably contact a pro.

If you're using a lightbox or popup plugin, I think Danny means that you give the image code an HTML wrapper...
 <a href="your url to the video"><img src="your static image url"></a>
A pro might be needed to get these videos into a carousel, but there are video plugins that popup into a lightbox. Check CodeCanyon for some premium ones.
