Falconiform YouTube Widget

Add YouTube videos to your sidebars with this highly customizable widget.

How can I allow an Editor to specify a video?

Go to an added YouTube widget (menu “Appearance” -> “Widgets”). Open the YouTube widget settings. Set “Index of the video ID from dedicated settings page” to 1. Check the box “Take video from dedicated settings page via index”. Click the “Save” button. Now an Editor can go to menu “YouTube Widget” and add a YouTube video link (or video ID) by setting “Video ID 1”. After that the YouTube widget shows the desired YouTube video.

Is it possible that an Editor specifies more than x videos?

Generally, yes. But it’s hard-coded at the moment. Please contact me if you need to specify more videos. However, you can add as many YouTube widgets as you like.

Can I style the Falconiform YouTube Widget?

Yes. The YouTube player is loaded in an iFrame, which has the css class .ff-youtube-widget-player-iframe. You can add this class for example in your theme’s css file and add css styles.
