Embed Video Thumbnail in featured slider
When adding a new post with an embedded video, is there way this video (or the first if multiple are in the post) can be used/set as the thumbnail image in the blog list and/or featured slider..
We occasionally post videos and want them to display in the featured slider, but there’s no thumbnail, and I need to take a screenshot of the video and set as featured image for this to display..
Unfortunately, the method you described is the only way I know to do this. The slider only handles images, not videos, and it doesn’t handle any images from outside URL’s. As far as I know, this is really a jQuery issue, and not a slider issue.
That said, you can always try replacing the theme’s slider with a slider that will handle video, such as the AntyhingSlider but that would be a fair amount of work.Mod
That’s weird — it’s echoing a shortcode.
Have you tried just placing the shortcode ([anything_slides]) on a page or post in the Visual Editor where you want the slider? I would try that and see if it works.
If not, use a Graphene Action Hook Widget Area.Admin

Interesting. So is the HTML content being shown written within the function?Admin

Gosh, talk about things being done “on the fly”.
