  • i don’t see a content-video.php file like i see for other formats. could that be the prob, or do videos piggyback on another format file?

    Theme Author Elegant Themes


    The header requires a featured image. Once you add it, it will include a video play button.

    hmmmm… i added a featured image for the post but still no play button. the featured image does show as the header on the home page post and also the post page.

    i must be missing something still….


    I am also having the same issue


    Should I upload a video ot it works with video links (e.g. YouTube videos)?

    Hi, same problem for me. When I add a youtube link inside the post, the video appears in the header but when I put a featured image, then I have the video play button on the image which is nice but I can’t click on the play button and if I click on the image, then the image disappears.

    I really love this theme but the header and post formats do not appear to be working properly. It’s sporadic which is maddening. I have them working in a few posts but any new video post I add, I can’t get it in the header. I’ve tried several things. Any chance we can get some response from the developer?

    I replicated this issue on my devinstalls.

    Quick fix (i suspect there is a better solutions. I was in a hurry).

    In custom.js

    Line 28, the line with: $video_container.show();


    Just below.

    On my test install, testing with featured image (and without) with a plain text YouTube URL.

    With Featured image and Youtube Plain URL: The ”Play button” overlay should be there. However, you need to click the image and not the button. When clicking the image the play button will be hidden, and also the meta-date (as the container blocking the YouTube controls) and you can play your video.

    Without Featured image and Youtube Plain URL: Should just show the video.

    However (separate thread maybe), when uploading self hosted video (MP4). It just shows the URL, and in single view, the video shows up (in the content, just as in a standard post).

    Hello !
    Can you help me and explain a bit more what we have to do?
    I’m a newbie and I don’t know where to find the custom.js

    Here is my blog :


    thanks for your help!
