YT videos instead of pictures on the post list. Why?

  • killer77


    2 of my posts have videos instead of pictures on the list as “featured-image”. Can someone explain to me why? Both posts have featured images pinned.

    That is a feature of the theme – if you have embedded videos in your post, the video will show up in the posts listing page.



    And how to disable this feature globally or how to force showing featured-image instead of featured-video?



    I have found a workaround.

    Small tutorial for those who have the same problem to force featured-image instead of featured-video (Youtube) in the post listings.

    ATTENTION! Do it only when you are 100% sure what you are doing.

    1. In the WP database find _postmeta table.

    2. Search for “post_id” = VALUE, where Value is the ID of problematic post/page

    3. Checkbox and delete all entries where meta_key is “_oembed_” or “_oembed_time_”

    We’ll add an option to disable this feature in the next theme update.



    When do you will launch the next theme update?
