Blog Archives/Index Page - Images Displaying, Videos Not

Hi Team,

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

I have an issue around this page here which I am building:

When displaying a list of all of the posts, the preview looks odd because some have images and some don’t; that is because some of the posts have videos (namely, this one: and ) - but in the list, you cannot see the video.

The only options I could see was to disable images for all of them, so it is just a list of text, but this is not as visually appealing as having all of them have a preview of the image/video. Is there a solution to this problem? Apologies if I am not making sense.

Many thanks in advance guys,

Kind Regards,


Generally archives and index page display post excerpts.

Excerpt is not just a piece of post content, you can check this WordPress Codex page for more information:

However, you can set Featured Image for each of your posts, so all of them will have image along with excerpt.

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.

Thanks Roman. There is a way to show all content, but then the page looks too busy. I may see if there is a way to display a featured image in archives but show the video on the page, or something. Thanks.

You are welcome,

Kind Regards, Roman.
