Single Video Post

Video posts are similar to standard blog posts, the only difference is that they have a box where the video link  or embedded video code can be inserted, and when viewed the video will be shown before the standard content.

To create a video post, you can follow these steps:

Step 1 – Add New Video

Go to Videos > “Add New”:

Step 2 – Add URL/Content

When inside the video post there are the standard options, add title, you can add some text in the content area if you want to have a description, but the most important area is adding a URL from either facebook or vimeo, below the page content you will see the “Post Embed” section, just copy and paste your link here.

Step 3 – Add a featured image

Step 4 – Add Tags and Categories

Adding tags and categories is useful if you want to display only certain video categories on different pages, you can do this on the right hand side also:

Step 5 – Publish

Once you’re done you can publish your video, save as a draft or set a time for the video to be published. The option will be at the top right:
