Posting Videos without double images?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I want to post videos to my blog and have it show up on the home page. But when they click image I don't want the feature image showing but only the video showing, as whats happening at link below. I'm using 'viper' video posting plugin.

Hello @vicdesotelle 

 

If this content is added from a third party plugin then the developer would be able to help to advise how to stop this happening. 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Hi Vic

 

The site you've referenced doesn't actually have the video showing in place of the featured image, it just a screenshot of the video eg - http://shopeverythinggreen.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/GreenVideoANewStoryofthPeople.png the actual video is embedded in the post so you click on that image, it takes you to the post and then the videos within the content etc.

 

I think Martin wrote the above as you said you're using the viper video plugin in your original post.

 

If you want to use videos instead within the post, go to create new post in the top right click on screen options and enable video - http://screencast.com/t/v0cB6Ozf

 

You should then see all the options for video in the post screen below the main area where you insert the post content - http://screencast.com/t/yU6lJ5h13N9

 

Add you link/embed code etc and publish.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hi Vic

 

Are you running the latest release of Wordpress?

Are you using Developer Framework or DMS. This option appears in the latest releases of DMS V2 from what I'm seeing, not sure about the Framework. Do you have the options when you make a post on the right hand side to select if its a standard, quote, video post etc?

DMS V2 has recently been released which has improved and updated a lot of the issues people were experiencing in V1. Take a test drive and set up a testing site at http://themes.pagelines.com/dms/?dobar=1 so you can try it out prior to purchasing.

 

Prices for DMS can be found at www.pagelines.com/pricing, DMS V2 is offered as either a Standalone product for a one off payment or via a subscription Club membership.

 

DMS is more advanced than the framework, a lot of the sections have been updated and new ones added to include the latest features included on most modern websites. Plus the drag and drop is more flexible than ever before.

re: the sites ive done them with old version, how will the upgrading go? is it as clean as merely upgrading? or do i need to go thru a whole building of secondary sites for each of them before going live?

      Hi
      Have researched this in the forum and find a couple ancient posts from 2011 and 2014 apparently for pre-DMS2?
      Am using latest Wordpress  4.8.4 running DMS Version: 2.2.4 theme
      When in the editor (Chrome), the page looks fine, but when logged out and viewing individual posts, they show up twice - one in the column I have setup and a second time at bottom of content page but above footer???
      Each page has 2 columns, left column is biggest and contains wploop/content and comments. wpcontent loop is displaying a second time below both columns but ONLY when not in editor. While in editor, second wp content block does not appear???
      https://cassclayton.com/el-chapultapec/  is a post. You can get to it from NEWS | News/Blog dropdown menu, then choosing a post.
      The 2011, 2014 posts talk about going into Settings and adjusting the excerpts vs full settings, but can't find anywhere to do this in DMS???
      Not sure if this is a new issue or old one i just now noticed.

      Best regards,
      John-eriK

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.
      -Matt

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
       
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template? 
      Examples below

      I'm trying to find a way to display the full content of my posts on my posts page rather than the post excerpt. 
      I've tried using various plugins to create a custom excerpt with no success, so I'm guessing I'll need to make the change to the theme files. That being said I'm not able to find where I would make that change. In the past I've been able to replace <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>, but I'm unable to locate this in the framework theme? Am I missing something here?
