Adding a Video Entry – theme change

    Hi Guys,

    I’m loving the graphene theme – but I’ve got a question – if I add a new entry to my blog (a youtube video) and select video from the format option on the right (WordPress 4.0.1), then save – I get a different article header layout than a standard text article…

    (see the screenshot below)

    The site is live at: http://www.twas.com.au/wordpress (I’ll be killing off the old Joomla monster shortly)

    I’ve tried using all the options (ie Link, Photo, video etc) – they all do it – except the “Standard” option

    Is there a way to make the Video format the same as the Standard option (ie the article header) – I don’t want the big video icon, or link icon, and the coloured bar and date – I want the header the same as a standard article…

    Where do I change this? in Graphene? or WordPress?

    Cheers,

    Richard

    Hi Richard.

    When you create the post, just choose the fane Text, and paste in your code:

    <iframe width="640" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/ptkgFPfvfqo?feature=player_embedded" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Cheers 🙂

    This is the correct behavior for this format option. If you don’t want this appearance, you have three alternatives:

    1) Use the regular post format. (Since these post formats only affect appearance, there is no SEO gain or loss either way.)

    2) Use the video format and a child theme to create your own video post format.

    3) Use custom CSS to alter the appearance of the video post format.

    Options 2 & 3 will require skill with CSS; Option 2 will require skill with PHP and WordPress.
