video format post to feed to a widget?

Recommended Posts

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


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.

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


Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

Did any of these suggestions work for you?


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 there,
      I'm a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Dougal

      Hi,
      How can I remove the "next post" links below each post page?

      Before we had a related post section, but I can't find it among any functions, widgets etc.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.
