    Hi all,

    I have a static front page with the latest posts and a right sidebar where I want to show some videos. How can I add a video to the right sidebar without having it at the same time on the main content area of my static front page?

    My blog is on http://www.independent-mind.com.

    Thanks for your help!

    Your front page is actually a blog/index page and not a static page.

    Anyway, if you hide the videos in the main content area, won't the post entries look a little strange with just the entry title & meta data? For example, you can try hiding the videos by adding this rule to the end of your child theme's style.css file:

    .home #content iframe {
        display: none;

    Thanks for your response. I don't just want to hide the video on the main content area but the entire post in this case.

    To clarify: The normal case is that I write articles and I want them to appear on the main content area. This works fine. In the right sidebar, I want to show a selection of videos. For the videos, I usually don't want to comment them and/or include them in a post. It's just a selection of my favorite videos and I want to show them on the right sidebar. Do you see a workaround for this?

    If you don't want to create posts for your videos, why don't you just copy & paste the embed code into a Text widget, instead? I would drag & drop one Text widget for each video into the side bar and set the title of the text widget to the title of the video.

    Thanks CrouchingBruin. This is definitely workaround. Video indexing is lost but rest looks ok.
