Video length and description under thumbnails (4 posts)

    Great plugin, thank you very much! Is it possible to include the video length and description (or other video information) under the thumbnail on the gallery page? I suppose I could do that by modifying the plugin's core files, but was wondering is there a way to do it simpler way, through shortcode for example.

    Cheers,
    Robert

    I don't have anything like it in shortcode right now. But if you're keen to hack it together (which should be fairly simple), I'd be happy to add a patch.

    For now I just modified the ev-shortcode.php and added the duration and description under each thumbnail. I'm just starting cracking this plugin creation thing, so I do plan to include these custom attributes in the shortcode, for example [external-videos duration="true"] or something like that.

    Thanks again, simple and very useful plugin!

    P.S. Do you have "view count" attribute created somewhere?

    No, I don't think I'm pulling the view count out of the feeds. You need to add some extra code todo that.

    If you want to add a different shortcode, maybe add a profile name for what you want to do. Something like "full-metadata".
