I am a complete beginner with wordpress and html.
I recently purchased a creative portfolio theme that I have discovered doesnt support having video in a portfolio of images. You either have to have a portfolio of images or one of video, not both together, which I think is ridiculous as all portfolio sites allow video to be in a project that includes images.
Anyway I downloaded this WP Video lightbox plugin but dont know how to use it, even with the guide!
I have a video on youtube I want to add into one of my portfolios.
In the wordpress dashboard when I go to Portfolio/ edit portfolio - do I paste the code into the text box? Anything I place into this text box shows up in the sidebar of my page beside my images. So where would the video show up?
The guide instructions say:
Embedding YouTube Video
You can embed a vimeo video using the following shortcode in a WordPress post or
[video_lightbox_youtube video_id=XX width=640 height=480 anchor=YY]
Replace “XX” with the actual video id and “YY” with the Anchor Text. You can use an
image as your anchor too.
What is the Anchor text and where do I find it? How do I anchor to an image?
Thanks for your help!
