    I’m using the embed video feature on my blog. This shows on the “Blog” page, but is not showing on my Homepage with “Blog” through advanced layout.

    I created a page with screenshots:

    How do I get the Videos to display on my homepage blog?

    Thanks and great theme

    I can get the home page to display the videos if I change to “Full Content”…but I really need the “Excerpt with Read More” option enabled for non-video content.

    I’m also having problems with css content on Safari…

    As you can see, the images are not rendering on Safari, but render on Chrome and Firefox…

    They appear for a split second and then as soon as the page fully loads in Safari, they disappear.

    Hi,

    How do you embed the videos? You can also use the Image element then supply the video url. This will render the image preview on Blog posts, once click the videos will open on lightbox.

    So the “insert image” with a link does create a lightbox within the blog post. But that still doesn’t address the “featured image” problem on the home page. In essence, I would like the videos to be viewable on the home page blog and not require a click-though to the actual post itself.

    Is it possible to add a link to a featured image?

    Also, I’m still having that second problem with Safari.

    Nonetheless, this theme ROCKS.

    EDIT: the problems in Safari are only on OSX version of Safari as it properly renders on iPad and iPhone versions of Safari

    I just checked my “error logs”… could this be the problem with Safari?…

    Code:
    [Tue Aug 06 12:02:27 2013] [error] [client 66.249.73.190] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_header() in /nas/wp/www/cluster-1682/netchoice/wp-content/themes/enfold/index.php on line 9

    EDIT: Safari was having a problem with CloudFlare…

    But still having problem with video blog on home page:

    #132822

    No, the featured image does not support a video link. However you can use the embed shortcode: http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds or the video shortcode (since wp3.6): http://codex.wordpress.org/Video_Shortcode to embed the video into your blog post. Did you try the “video” post format? Eg Kriesi used it for the last entry here: http://kriesi.at/themes/enfold/blog/blog-multi-author/ and the video will be shown like a featured image.

    Hi Dude,

    Can you provide more info on how Eg Kriesi got the featured video to work? The sample post does not include the video. It is only on the demo site.

    I tried adding the vimeo embed code or just the vimeo url to the video post but did not get the wanted result.

    Regards,

    Update:

    I got it to work except when I set the blog style to grid layout. In this case, I am not able to get a preview image or video. If I add a Featured Image on the post, then I get a preview image on the blog grid. However, the post does not work properly. I get the Featured Image mixed with the video.

    Any idea how to get a preview image or video for a grid blog layout while keeping the video only on the post page?

    #132825

    Hi rbellei,

    I’m not sure if that would work at the moment. The grid needs a featured image and I’m not sure what would be needed to add support for the video for the single but not the featured when present.

    I’ll tag Kriesi to see if has any plans to modify it or if it would be easily modifiable without a theme update.

    Regards,

    Devin

    @rbellei – You can easily hide the preview thumbnail with css (because video posts do have a special “format-video” css class). Insert following code into the quick css field

    .single-post .format-video.single-small.with-slider .small-preview {
    display: none !important;
    }
