    I would like to put a video on home page within one of the presentation columns. Is this possible? If so, provide instruction.

    It is possible by using a plugin with video shortcodes and using that shortcode in the columns text.

    By column's 'text' you mean the third space below column on the presentation page? Where it asks for first image, second title, third text? Putting the shortcode in the area marked 'text' gets the video (or slideshow or whatever is shortcoded) to appear below the column. Is there a way to get in INSIDE the column?

    I am trying to put video in a column, so the viewer sees it when opens the page. Which plugin do you recommend to put the video there?

    Fujiya, have you seen this thread which included a solution from Cryout Creations? Maybe it will help.

    "Can you put video in presentation column?"

    If it's a YouTube video, there's a great support page from WordPress.com:

    Embedding Videos with a URL

    which I used and it worked perfectly on my column on the presentation page of my website: Awakened Lives.

    Make sure that you put this shortcode in the column field marked "Text".
