Border around embedded videos ...

Recommended Posts

Hi all

The recent update to 2.3 changed a few things on my site.

Most of the changes were minor layout and formatting alterations but the main one has been the white border around my YouTube videos. Before the upgrade these borders / padding were a pleasant semi transparent blue - Now they are brilliant white. Can anyone suggest how I might change it back. Thanks in advance.

Andrew.

Hi,

This is because from the looks of it, you have embedded your YouTube clip into a <pre>YouTube Link</pre> tags, remove these tags from your YouTube embed code and the border should be removed.

Hi Danny,

While the original blue border was quite nice, no border at all is better than the white - Thanks.

Presently, I do not see any borders around your videos. Is this issue resolved?

Hi Rob

I would love to have what I originally had before the upgrade to 2.3 (Blue Borders around embedded video), in the meantime however, it seems that borderless is a simpler support solution and looks a lot nicer than brilliant white borders.

I hope that makes sense :-) .... ?

Getting my original blue borders / padding back would be nice - Can you suggest how?

Thank you in advance,

Andrew

Andrew,

I did this as a test. Add it to Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code > CSS Rules at the end.


.featured_branding_wrap {

    border: 3px solid white;

    overflow: hidden;

}

Mind you, it's white for visual purposes only. You can change the word 'white' to any color such as #C00000 (deep red) using alpha-numeric values, such as that or, using words like navy. Unfortunately, your images are not scaled properly, and I think you may have it set for Aspect rather than Static. I'm getting a 2 pixel gap on the left and about 30px on the bottom. If I change

.featured_branding_wrap {

    max-height: 410px;

}

to

.featured_branding_wrap {

    max-height: 390px;

}

The bottom gap vanishes.

Hi Rob

Thanks for your efforts on this.

The border I'm talking about is the one that surrounded the embedded YouTube videos in the actual Sub60 posts - Not the featured branding wrap.

My first PageLines post on the topic (see above) has an image attached - This shows a white border around an embedded YouTube video.

The original colour of that border was a blue - Similar to the border around the post thumbnails .... see image post-369-0-36325600-1348967548_thumb.jpg.

Andrew,

Try this:


.player-container {

-moz-transition: left 300ms ease 0s, right 300ms ease 0s;

border: 5px solid navy;

bottom: 0;

left: 0;

position: absolute;

right: 0;

top: 0;

}

Again, navy was used tor contrast to the background which is already blue.

If you want things like shadows, etc. copy and paste from the thumbnail CSS using Firebug.

Hi Rob

For some reason I couldn't get yours to work - I'm a total newbie with CSS .., etc.

My son came up with:

.youtube_sc {

border: 5px solid #5782C0;

box-shadow: 0 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,0.5);

}

It's not what I had - but now - it's just like the thumbnail border.

Once again Rob - Thanks for helping out.

Andrew

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
