Problem with post format 'video'

    Hi there,

    So, i do a redesign of my website: http://www.wouterkelderman.nl

    I post a lot of stuff with video. Now there are four problems:

    -first thing is the post format, I don’t like the red stuff and things, is it possible to disable that (even for al the post formats)? It would be great if I can change it to the ‘standard’ post title 🙂

    -Second is that when i make a post with format ‘video’ the text under the video is wrapped in a small block thing, how can i make that readable? (like: http://www.wouterkelderman.nl/2012/vallende-sneeuw-timelapse/ )

    -Third is how can I add an ‘read more..’ on the homepage? If I have a video format post than I can see a ‘more’ link to the full post.

    -Fourth the date in a video format post is slightly to high, it gets into the video, not that very nice, can i change it?

    Thanks, its a great theme 😀 Very happy with it!

    Greetings, Wouter

    Since these post formats don’t really offer any additional search capabilities, why not just use a standard format? Of course, you can always create a child theme and change the styling of these to match that of a standard post if you still want to have these.

    -Second is that when i make a post with format ‘video’ the text under the video is wrapped in a small block thing, how can i make that readable?

    These post formats, such as “picture” and “video” are meant to emphasize the video or picture in question, and aren’t meant to have text associated with them. Add this to your child theme stylesheet or custom CSS:

    .format-video .entry-content p {
    line-height: 20px;
    }

    and adjust the “20px” until you have something you like.

    Third is how can I add an ‘read more..’ on the homepage?

    I think this has been discussed recently in the forum. I don’t have time to find it right now, but if you search for it, you will probably find it.

    Firebug will help you find the relevant codes. Try Josh’s Firebug tutorial: http://www.joshlobe.com/2011/10/using-mozilla-firebug-to-inspect-css-files/

    When I use the standard format the video’s wil not be displayed at the homepage.

    That short piece of code did the job! Thanks!

    I found the ‘read more..’ button, stupid, that was easy 🙂

    Ah, that’s why. I wasn’t aware of this.
