  • There are maybe a couple where I used a frame from the video as a thumb because I couldn’t find a better picutre. If there are any other features on my site you like, leave a comment and I’ll tell you how I did it.

    Ah, I thought so – good idea. It’s a great site, I like it a lot. I will leave some comments on it! Thanks.

    Hey Florence – not sure how to contact you via your site – was going to ask you if the jetpack plugin plays OK with your theme…

    Just leave a comment with you emailadress and I’ll email you. I’d rather not post my emailadress on this forum, or any forum for that matter.
    You can get Jetpack to work, but you’ll need to make a few changes to the theme.

    Florence I find it impossible to leave comments on your site – they’re not working – error 403 every time (is this jetpack causing problems?). You can email me at: – I’ll delete this email account after I hear from you. Cheers

    email sent 🙂

    Dear Everyone,

    Thanks for all these insights however i am facing some issue placing the second part of the code and should amend the code on the index page directly.

    Here is the code I have their:

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <div id="post-area">
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>	
       		<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
    		 <?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) { ?>
             <div class="gridly-image"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail( 'summary-image' );  ?></a></div>
              <div class="gridly-category"><p><?php the_category(', ') ?></p></div>
    		  <?php } ?>
           			<div class="gridly-copy"><h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
                    <p class="gridly-date"><?php the_time(get_option('date_format')); ?>  </p>
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?> 
                   <p class="gridly-link"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>">View more &rarr;</a></p>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php else : ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    If you can help me getting this nice video in place.


    Hello everyone

    I am having great issues with getting this plug-in to work with the ‘Hatch’ theme

    Link to Hatch theme

    the theme does not have a single.php file and whilst i can get the first fix to display the ‘featured video’ box in edit post i cannot get the video to display either in the post or as featured video.

    can anyone please shed some light on a possible fix

    no single php? Does it have a page.php? Which file is used to display posts, do you know?

    Hello Florence.

    it does not have a single.php file. It does have a page.php file so im assuming that is what it is using to display the post.

    After placing code into index.php i have got the video to display in the featured image section but not in the page itself. I am removing that code though as it is slowing the site down to a halt.

    is the code that needs modifying in page.php the same code as single.php? or would it be different?

    from what i can see after exploring the code for the Hatch theme. it is coded different from other themes that people are using.

    Its frustrating as i am not familiar with coding and im getting the feeling that i am doing more harm than good

    Well, just back-up your site and play with the code. If you screw it up, just replace the file and try again. In my experience that’s the best way to learn.

    Compare the source code of you published pages to that of your posts. Also, look through the files to see if they maybe named the post template something different. Probably not though.

    If the page template is used for the posts as well, then you’ll have to edit that.

    I had the same problem as you did. You have to find with which ID your theme calls the featured image. It’s different for every theme. In my case it was ‘post-thumb’

    Once you have that, look to the previous page of this thread for a reply by Mike Bikkel. He explained to me how you can turn the original featured image function into a conditional funtion which calls the featured video if it is there. Replace ‘post-thumb’ with whatever your theme’s featured image ID is.

    Thank-You Florence

    I’ll give that a try

    Good luck!

    no luck unfortunately

    if in the event that a theme does not have a single.php file from what i recall of hierarchy it prioritises index.php correct?

    i have searched index.php, post.php and page.php but no luck with the Hatch theme. its the theme that i need to use so if anyone could provide advice it would be greatly appreciated
