Video Gallery

Important Information

The Video Item content type posts videos to your page (respectively) when paired with a placeholder.

At a Glance

  • Requires Placeholder: Yes
  • Placement: Almost anywhere
  • Special Setup: None
  • Image Sizes:
    • Dimensions:
      • Thumbnail: 237 x 178px
    • Resolution: 72. This is absolutely essential! Using print quality images (300+) will cause your page to load slowly or not at all.

Special Note:

The Video Item content type is still pending some of the more modern updates the "Video" content type has already received. This means the URL needed for a gallery of videos varies slightly.

Current Restrictions:

  • YouTube support ONLY
  • Uses the "Embed" URL

The URL can be found within the "Embed" code generated by YouTube. This will look similar to:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The entire iframe code isn't necessary, instead just copy the URL from the "src" area:

Media Gallery: Video Item contains the following elements:

  • Name - Used in Sitemanager only. This does NOT show up on your webpage.
  • Title - In this content type, title is used as an image caption in the gallery.
  • Video Reference - Use this to input the video URL from YouTube.
  • Thumbnail - Media galleries require a smaller thumbnail image as a preview.
  • Teaser Text - Text that appears under the full size image in the gallery slider.
  • Date - Use this to denote the date the image was added or created.
