I cannot figure out a way to embed video (YouTube, internal) on a specific full listing display. As in a video from the listed business.
Cannot use html/embed code in fields. Cannot apply a custom sidebar in WP (I'm running Genesis) since individual Biz Directory files don't offer that option. Cannot use an image to point to the video (or don't know how due to loader).
Anyone have a solution? Are we getting html in fields anytime soon, and if so will it allow for embeds? Thanks.
By "embed" code, I assume that means you've tried:
and it failed, yes? Which field types did you try this on? Description would be the obvious choice, but I need to be sure.
Out of the box, WP does support embedding but for my other plugin, we had to add the processing of the shortcode such that WP would recognize the embed in the page. That may be true here as well.
We'll look into supporting HTML and Video in the plugin.
Thanks wpbdm. Must have been trying the wrong fields but now it's happening. Excellent development!
Not sure which fields didn't work as we've renamed them all. But it worked on Description.
I referred to the newish YouTube embed that starts with iframe width="420" height="315" ... Haven't tried in-house video yet.
OK, great...glad that's working.
Just FYI, WordPress (not BD) restricts what you can show for videos in a site. It's laid out in detail here:
Basically, if it's not on the WP whitelist, you can't embed it with their tag.
