    Is there a way for a video from a post to appear on the blog home page?

    I understand how to do this with an image. But I am unable to do this with a video.

    Here’s the example of what I am trying yo achieve:

    ( It may be slow to load. It is a prototype that is no longer in development)

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    You could use the Page Header meta box.

    Add your video embed into the content area, and turn on the “Add to excerpt” option.

    Thanks Tom,

    I tried it. It’s not showing up in the blog home page.

    and when I add it to the post that way, if I click the Youtube re-size box to make it full screen, it has a jerkiness, especially going back to the post size. I wasn’t seeing that when I used the embed code in the content of the text editor.

    SO maybe it’s the way I have things configured.

    I’m using GeneratePress with Beaver Builder.

    I have all the add ons from both of those. Plus I have Beaver Tunnels>

    Any possibility that’s causing something to not work?

    Here’s the blog home page:

    And here’s the example post That I just made using your instructions:

    Let me say I think GP and BB work extremely well together and was very pleased with the work flow I had building the pages for the front end.

    But when I got to the blog posts, I hit a lot of issues with alignment that had me working with a lot of css. Perhaps I’m just misunderstanding how it works, but I’m sure I will have more questions.

    IN any case, my praise to you for a great theme. As someone who has been working with Headway or the last three years, GP and BB gives me a better work flow.

    Thanks for your help.

    Ah, you’re not using the GP blog page – you’re using BB to display your posts.

    You would have to ask them if there’s a way to display videos instead of an image inside their posts system, as GP doesn’t have any control over their template.

    Aha! Thanks –

    I’ll check that route.
