    Hi again BC

    I need to add images and videos to my events. Images work fine in all situations but not videos. When adding a video link in a post WordPress auto adds and outputs the video. When I add the video in the events system the video shows in the admin entry page and also shows if the resulting event is viewed with its event url but it doesn’t sow in the results of the historic events shortcode. Any help please.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    I’m not sure why that is but the shortcode is really only designed to show text (headings) and not media – which you should place only after the more tag for the short-code to work best.

    Morning BC

    Thanks for your reply.

    OK I get that.

    Is it possible to add a line from the shortcode result in the table to the post page so the video will play there. I do see that adding the more tag does this but it would be od to have an auto link from all listins back to their post.

    Also the view link in the admin list is still directing to root rather than the wordpress directory.

    Sorry to be a pain, your plugin is great and works well on the site, just this couple of things.

    Thanks again.

    Sorry, “line” should be “link”.

    There are already options to link all posts or only those with the more tag.

    You can add a link yourself to go any place if you like.

    You already reported the bug with the admin view link.
