Magazine Basic
Theme Update Made YouTube Embeds Not Work... [Magazine Basic] (2 posts)

    Site is designed around Magazine Basic. I was doing some general maintenance and poking last night and hit "Update" on the Magazine Basic theme on the appearance page (I wasn't paying attention; thought I was going to get a "Live Preview").

    This update brought the site up to the latest version of Magazine Basic -- but that threw off all the customizations that had been made to the site. So I tried to revert the update back to an older version. Problem is: I didn't know which version I'd updated from.

    In the end, I re-uploaded and am now using Magazine Basic 2.7.9 which got the site to look like it did before except that...

    Now YouTube embedding doesn't work. When I just paste the YouTube link, it simple shows up in the post as an unlinked link, not as an embedded video. When I use the "old embed" code, the site automatically resizes the video down to a thumbnail width of 160px.

    I discovered that if I use the iFrame YouTube embed on a new post then it will embed the video, but...

    In all the older posts going back six years, YouTube videos have all been resized down to 160px!

    How can I correct this? I've searched the code and the forums and the web for some clue as to what is happening but can't find anything.

    Hello there,

    should not customize the theme by touching the files, the files must remain original, without any modification.
    If you want to customize the theme, alros create a child theme.
    Always keep updating the website, the theme, plugins.
