DMS 2 video format post to feed to a widget?


Question

Posted · Report post

Hello Pagelines!

 

I would like to use a video from a blog post in a sidebar. Is there something that would allow me to create a video format post, for that post to then show up in a recent post widget, and for the video in the widgetized area to be clickable/playable?

 

I know that it's easy to add a video to a sidebar using embed code, but that would require that I add it to the blog and then add it to the section separately, which is not ideal. :) 

 

Thanks for your help/suggestions!

 

Jackie

Hi Jackie

 

I'm not aware of any plugin that would add this options, Special recent posts have it on the wish list of things to be added but I can't see anything else that would be suitable.

 

Check out these though in case they can help, doesn't look like they pull from a post though. https://wordpress.org/plugins/external-videos/

 

Maybe this can be modded since Wp 3.9 supports video? - http://codecanyon.net/item/better-recent-posts-widget-pro/318193?ref=mordauk

That codecanyon plugin... looks like a straight rip off of special recent posts? 

 

Could Jackie not pull rapid tabs into a child theme and modify there?

 

External videos widget doesnt allow for the video to be played in the sidebar or as a lightbox

[Edited] However, use the shortcode in a text widget and the videos lightbox when clicked (much like the gallery). Edit the plugin external-videos/ev-widget.php to get the size of thumbnail you require, to fit your side bar
