Using the Hero Unit with a video

Hi there,

 

Unfortunately the hero doesn't have a media area, only an image field so it won't accept a video. You could try a banner instead or a feature which includes a media area to include video content.

Hi I was just wondering if it was possible to use the hero unit with a video instead of an image? I have searched the forums but cannot find anything.

That's a shame. It would have been nice to use the button within the hero unit. I'll just use a banner instead then and add in a button manually.

 

Cheers

The masthead section includes a media area and a button as well.

Yeah I had a look at that but it seemed like a bit of a hassle to position the video on the right alongside the text using the masthead.

Sorry to hear that, and for any inconvenience.  I'll look into this further but appreciate your time in letting us know.
